Dirty Dancing is a 1987 romance film that portrays a teenage girl's revolt against her father's wish by getting into a relationship with a dance tutor during the family's summer holiday. The two main characters in the film are Frances Houseman and Johnny Castle, whose roles are played by Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze respectively.
Director: Emile Ardolino Starring: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey
A classic and no doubt. Patrick Swayze is great in any film he is in. I realise this was a chick flick, but it was still cool.
At a family holiday camp in the 50s, Jennifer Grey plays Baby, a young woman with her family who falls for the camp's dancing instructor, the sexy Swa-Hay-Zee. Grey leaves the holidaymakers part of the camp and experiences another world when she joins the dancers in their off-duty sexy fun time. A bunch of sweaty people doing the most suggestive dancing ever seen, especially for the 50s. It's an awakening for Grey in many ways, and Swa-Hay-Zee teaches her what he knows.
Some rather adult themes in the film, so it's definitely not for the whole family, but it's a very decent chick flick.
The most famous line of the film, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner.." was a real F**K YEAH moment.
