Dirty Dancing

1987's Dirty Dancing sees headstrong 17-year-old Baby Houseman (Jennifer Grey) on her family's usual summer vacation in the Catskills, New York, hardly expecting it to be momentous. But then she spies Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), the resort's dance instructor from the wrong side of the tracks.

Johnny's facing a crisis: his dance partner and friend, Penny, is pregnant and has reluctantly decided to get an abortion. This leaves Johnny a solo act - until Baby agrees to take Penny's place. She has to learn how to dance first, however, and as Johnny teaches her the choreography's sexy, seductive moves, the two fall in l-o-v-e.

Winner of the 1988 Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Original Song - '(I've Had) The Time of My Life'.

This '80s classic transcends cynicism to give warm-fuzzies the world over.

If the ending of Eleanor Bergstein's script is too neat and inspirational, the rough energy of the film's song and dance does carry one along, past the whispered doubts of better judgment.

The dancing here brings out the sensual dreaminess of the songs... such a bubbleheaded, retro vision of growing up in the sixties (or any other time) that you go out of the theatre giggling happily.
