Product description

Product Description

Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey star in this classic 1980s romantic comedy drama directed by Emile Ardolino. Frances 'Baby' Houseman (Grey) is a teenage girl on holiday with her family at a resort in the Catskill Mountains. Stumbling upon an off-limits employees-only party, she witnesses the staff getting down and dirty to the R&B hits of the day. The hotel's dance instructor Johnny (Swayze) catches her eye in particular, and, despite their differences in class, age and experience, the couple begin to fall in love. The film won the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for '(I've Had) the Time of My Life'.

From Amazon.co.uk

It’s inspired a hit musical. The soundtrack has sold in its millions. And it’s still, arguably, the most popular film on Patrick Swayze’s curriculum vitae. Most worrying of all, perhaps, is that Dirty Dancing is now more than twenty years old. Now that’s scary.

Still, it does offer the excuse for a special anniversary release, and that’s exactly what we have here. And, to be fair, the film has never looked better. The story is still as straightforward and simple as it always was, baked just to the point where it can support the aforementioned Swayze and Jennifer Grey strutting their stuff. But Dirty Dancing nonetheless continues to work well to this day, with its rarely-rivalled, sizzling mix of romance, energy and music.

Of course, it’s an easy film to pick holes in, should you be inclined to do so. After all, at heart it’s a well packaged piece of hokum, that’s never likely to contend in a Top 100 movies poll. But to pick holes would be churlish, and perhaps to miss the point. Because Dirty Dancing’s mantra is to entertain, and it delivers on that promise with some conviction. The late Emile Ardolino wisely keeps his direction zippy, and the two leads really do look like they’re having the time of their life.

Granted, this latest re-release isn’t going to convert sceptics to the ways of Dirty Dancing, and the unfortunate, unwelcome sequel will remain a blot on its copybook. But this original is hard to beat, and it’s still a hard dish to resist. --Jon Foster
