Dirty Dancing (1987)

Dirty Dancing (1987, USA) C-96m. ** D: Emile Ardolino. Starring Jennifer Grey, Patrick Swayze, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes, Jack Weston, Emile Ardolino. In the summer of 1963, seventeen-year-old Grey goes to a holiday camp with her parents, little dreaming that she will meet and fall in love with a dance pro (Swayze) and have the 'time of her life'. Sort of a cult classic for dance-freaks, this romantic drama is well-paced but throws all credibility overboard early on. You can actually have a good time if you buy into it, however. Oscar winner for Best Song.
