Dirty Dancing-A Movie to Relive Your Youth
Dirty Dancing is one of those movies that just seems to stick in your mind. I love the actors, Jennifer Gray and Patrick Swayze do a wonderful job. I have seen the movie many times over the years and enjoy it every time I see it. There are some great lines in the movies too, my favorite is "Nobody puts baby in a corner." I think my favorite thing about the movie is the dancing. I could sit and watch the dancing over and over again.
Now, I am not normally a person who watches a movie lots of times. I usually would rather watch something new, but there is something about this movie that draws me in to it. It was first shown in 1987, a time when I was in my late 30's. My children were teenagers and I was beginning to look back at my own teenage years.
Dirty Dancing was set in 1963, just about the time I started high school. In some ways it reminded me of a camping trip I took about that time with my girlfriend and her parents. We didn't have a dance to go to, but there was a roller skating rink we went to near the camp grounds where we met some older boys and we each developed summer crushes. Nothing as dramatic as in Dirty Dancing but perhaps the movie brings back the memories of my younger self.
Whatever it is that draws me to it, I will have to admit it is a favorite movie. In fact, just talking about it makes me want to watch it again.

If you enjoy Dirty Dancing than I'm sure you'll enjoy these movies too! They all have the romantic mystic that draws you into the story, great characters, and don't forget the dancing!
Patrick Swayze was a real hunk. If you liked him in Dirty Dancing, I'm sure you'll enjoy this.
If you love 60's style dancing you don't want to miss this classic.
This movie is so much fun, a good romantic story, great characters and dancing all rolled into one movie.
