Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing
  • 1987
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Emile Ardolino
  • Written by: Eleanor Bergstein
  • Cast: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes

The plot – in the summer of 1963 bad boy Johnny (Swayze) meets good girl Baby (Grey) and teaches her hip grinding, eventually winning the respect of her parents. Sure it's full of stereotyping, bad dialogue and a pre-teen sugar coated prurience, but decades on Dirty Dancing still has the ability to send a generation of women all gooey.
