Say what you like, but Dirty Dancing remains one of my favourite movies from childhood, adolescence, adulthood.. my love has stayed true so far. I’m on a bit of a rewatch, nostalgic trip at the moment. Lots of John Hughes, lots of 80s, lots of old loves.
And come on. Jennifer Grey is charming in her geeky innocence. Swayze is strong, can really move and hell, that makes him kinda sexy. The dance moves are often on the edge of obscene, yet beautiful all at once. The soundtrack is pure brilliance. And well, then there’s the iconic lift scenes.
