Film Review - Dirty Dancing

Release: 1987
Director: Emile Ardolino
Starring: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey

A classic and no doubt. Patrick Swa-Hay-Zee as my compatriot Stiggy would say it. Swayze is great in any film he is in. I realise this was a chick flick, but it was still cool.

At a family holiday camp in the 50s, Jennifer Grey plays Baby, a young woman with her family who falls for the camp's dancing instructor, the sexy Swa-Hay-Zee. Grey leaves the holidaymakers part of the camp and experiences another world when she joins the dancers in their off-duty sexy fun time. A bunch of sweaty people doing the most suggestive dancing ever seen, especially for the 50s. It's an awakening for Grey in many ways, and Swa-Hay-Zee teaches her what he knows.

Some rather adult themes in the film, so it's definitely not for the whole family, but it's a very decent chick flick.

The most famous line of the film, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner.." was a real F**K YEAH moment
