      Baby (Jennifer Grey) is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she's disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the Catskills with her parents. Her luck turns around, however, when the resort's dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love.

        Who doesn't love Dirty Dancing? An absolute classic.

        I can't believe it took me twenty years or so to see this gem. It's just such a nicely-packaged little story. It doesn't try to be anything other than a sweet bildungsroman that tackles class issues while treating the audience to beautifully choreographed dance routines.

        Dirty Dancing is a classic, with good performances and some great dance choreography. Definently a romance that can be enjoyed by both genders. A film for the ages.

        One of the oldest and most loved girly movies of all time that I have never been ashamed to say I love. The acting is terrible, the special effects have holes in them and the story line is sporadically poor but the soundtrack and simplicity of the instant love between Baby and Johnny is what every 14 year old girl (including myself at that age wanted). As I have got older, the age difference between them unnerves me slightly but then most things unnerve me in my old age. A definite keeper, even if it is complete hogwash.
