Dirty Dancing
In the summer of ’63, seventeen-year-old Baby (Jennifer Grey) goes on vacation with her family to a resort in the Catskills. Baby is bored until she meets hunky professional dancer Johnny (Patrick Swayze). Before you can say “Dancing with the Stars,” he is teaching her some pelvic moves and she is taking the place of his dance partner who has turned up pregnant. Needless to say, Baby’s daddy does not approve of the couple’s suggestive gyrations. North Carolina and Virginia stand in for the upstate New York locations in this surprise hit. Like Baby, you’ll have the time of your life. (1987) 100 MIN. (PG-13) (LIONSGATE)
