Product Description

As with Grease (1978) and Footloose (1984) before it, Dirty Dancing was a cultural phenomenon that now plays more like camp. That very campiness, though, is part of its biggest charm. And if the dancing in the movie doesn't seem particularly "dirty" by today's standards--or 1987's--it does take place in an era (the early '60s) when it would have. Frances "Baby" Houseman (Jennifer Grey, daughter of ageless hoofer Joel Grey) has been vacationing in the Catskills with her family for many years. Uneventfully. One summer, she falls under the sway (as it were) of dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze). Baby is a pampered pup, but Johnny is a man of the world. Baby's father, Jake (Law and Order's Jerry Orbach), can't see the basic decency in greaser Johnny that she can. It should come as no surprise to find that Baby, who can be as immature as her name, learns more about love and life--and dancing--from free-spirited Johnny than traditionalist Jake.

Dirty Dancing spawned two successful soundtracks, a short-lived TV series, and a stage musical. It may be predictable, but Grey and Swayze have chemistry, charisma, and all the right moves. It's a sometimes silly movie with occasionally mind-boggling dialogue--"No one puts Baby in a corner!"--that nonetheless carries an underlying message about tolerance and is filled with the kind of exuberant spirit that's hard for even the most cynical to resist. Not that they'd ever admit it. --Kathy Fennessy

4.0 out of 5 stars Single disc is better. March 11 2014
By Linda
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't recommend buying this particular 2 disc edition. The second disc is full of interviews of people who made the movie, not the stars or behind the scenes footage. Very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not much to say March 10 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
There is not much one can say about Dirty Dancing; either you like or not. I'm personally not a big fan of it, but my girlfriend is and she loves the fact that the movie is in high-def, which makes it so much more enjoyable for her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Dancing. A Decision Is Made. Sept. 6 2012
By Scoopriches TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
THIS IS A SPOILER FILLED POST.

For many years the classic movie Dirty Dancing has inhabited my radar. Because of my beautiful wife I have experienced this film multiple times on dvd, enjoyed it once in the theatre, and was entertained three times by the story on stage. We also became conversant with all the minutia involved having immersed ourselves in both of the commentaries and all the extras on both versions of the dvd's we treasure.

To say this has transformed into a major pre-occuopation for us is an understatement.

For the uninitiated to the Dirty Dancing movement, the movie starring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze was released in 1987 and immediately became a smash hit. Written by Eleanor Bergstein, and very loosely based on her life, this story intergrated itself into the popular culture. It seems like a rite of passage for all teen girls to devour this movie. Just like Titanic years later, a chord was struck causing me to wonder what was in the DNA of these tales which birthed such devotion? A SPOILER FILLED synopsis is next.

This love story of change starts in the summer of 1963 when the main character, called Baby, is 16 and is on a family vacation to a large resort. She is a liberal idealist with a large Kennedy streak and a hero worship of her dad. Very shortly after arriving (7 minutes into the movie) she glimpses rebel dance instructor Johnny, and gets a first taste of the behind the scene politics at the resort. Growing bored with supposed monotony of the activities, she seeks something different and one night wanders into the off limits Staff Quarters area. Here is her first shocking exposure to the "Dirty Dancing" of the title.

Whom is a better dancer than Patrick? Besides being gorgeous, he's a terrific actor, & this movie will make all of us remember him forever.The movie is engraved in my heart forever, & seeing Patrick so alive & so vital will make me remember him forever.(Not to be lost- but all the music in this movie is fantabulous, especially if you are a fan of the 50's & 60's)
