Synopsis: A young women spends the summer in a privileged holiday camp, with her family, only to fall in love with the bad boy dance instructor.
Fact: Jennifer Grey was ten years older, 27, than the part she played.
Trivia: Johnny and Baby are always wearing contrasting colors of black and white.
Movie Mistake: When Johnny prepares to dance he removes his jacket twice.
My Take: Dirty Dancing is one of three movies that made dancing movies cool, with Footloose and Flash Dance being the other two. It's worth seeing just to see the amount of cheese that goes along with the line "Nobody puts Baby in a corner."
