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.

I have always LOVED this movie, spactacular for all the reasons everyone else enjoys it. But this DVD edition has odd menu music that I found distracting. The interviews, though updated from the collector's editon (which was better), were long-winded and unfocused. I found myself wondering when they were going to finish their point. There is a tribute to the director Emile Ardolino who died from AIDS in 1993. It was a nice idea with some good photos of him. But again the interviews were a little long. It seemed like they needed to do a bit more editing. They have also changed the original chapter selection scene titles for each scene. I thought that was unnecessary because the collector's edition version was just fine. Also, perhaps the most obvious missing piece was a missing interview with Patrick Swayze among all the updated interviews. I was disappointed with that.

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.

This was an excellent purchase. There is more on these DVDs than you can shake a stick at. The bonus DVDs has absolutely everything you can imagine from the movie. Alternate endings, cut scenes, screen tests, even a few scenes where there was a different actress playing the mother, interview with Patrick Swayze you name it. If you like this movie, you'll want this DVD, if for nothing else than the bonus DVD.

Of course, the movie is a good story as well. ;)

As other reviewers have said, this movie is timeless. It was made when I was about 5 years old but when I first saw it at the age of 16 I fell in love! And no, not over Patrick Swayze's six pack and pecks (although they are added bonuses!) but over the heart and humanity of the story. The story takes place in the summer of 1963 "Before President Kennedy was shot, before the Beatles came" as Baby, the heroine, says. She and her Mom, Dad and sister are on their way to a family vacation spot. Baby is sort of a wallflower, she has her own ideas and ambitions but no spark to her life. Then, she sees Johnny Castle, a tall, rebellious dance instructor. When Penny, Johnny's dance partner, finds out she's pregnant and decides to get an illegal abortion, Baby becomes involved in the struggles of the teens and twenty-somethings barely making a living among the "elite".
Baby then makes a deal to learn how to dance so that both Johnny and Penny can keep their jobs. I love these scenes when she and Johnny are arguing over the dance steps. The scene with "Hungry Eyes" is one of my favorites! In the course of this, we see Baby's evolution from dowdy clothing to great clothes and makeup! And once she shows some spirit, the story really begins. Johnny learns to respect her and she sees the true person hidden behind the tough exterior.
Of course, there has to be conflict. When Penny's abortion threatens her life, Baby again saves the day by bringing her doctor father in to save her. Johnny takes the wrap for the pregnancy and at the same time, Baby makes a bold move!
Penny's pregnancy and Baby's automatic assumption that the child is Johnny's is typical of the wealthy's view of people considered "low" class. The fact that it is Robbie's, the med. student waiter, shows the truth of life.
