Dirty Dancing

There's something about 80's movies which just don't sit well with me. In fact, I think the 80is is the one decade which I hate the most. Maybe it was the hideous leggings, which have made a come-back. Dirty Dancing (1988) is one of those movies which my mum loves and used to watch all the time when I was younger. I was never overly keen on it, and now I think it's good, but not inspiring or amazing.
You've probably seen it, so you will know the storyline. Baby (Jennifer Grey) is a teenager who goes on vacation with her family and meets rebel Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze). Upon meeting him, she is introduced to an outside world full of being rebellious and dancing in a way that wasn't perceived to be acceptable in the 1960's. As most romantic films do, Baby falls in love with Johnny, against what her parents want for her.
Patrick Swayze sadly died last year, and I think it's fair to say that world lost a talented triple threat. However, Dirty Dancing is a classic, and one of those films which everyone will see at some point in their life. While it's not fantastic, it is a runaway hit which is making a comeback...people my age are falling in love with it. Which is always good.
