Dirty Dancing is a love story between two people that come from two different worlds. Even though they are polar opposites they fall madly in love and learn a lot about themselves and others. Frances “Baby” was a good girl with no dancing skills, whereas Johnny was a bad boy who loved to dance and was darn good at it. The music and dancing portray an 80’s feel and era when dancing was very popular. I recommend ages 13 and up watch this masterpiece because it shows young love. Overall, their chemistry in this film is immaculate and can’t be beat. I rate this movie a 5/5 stars because I loved this movie so much and I would totally watch it over and over again if I could.

This movie never fails to entertain me and I've seen it more times than I can count but I just love all of the performances and the music, the dancing... everything. I love the nostalgia and the romance of the era. No matter how many times I watch it, I will always be in love with it! Sadly several of the cast members have since passed away, but I'm glad they made this gem to keep their performances alive.

I will and can put 'Baby in a Corner' . The dancing is boring to me and the characters to me felt dull. There was also a lot of yelling/whining in it; it honestly made me unable to really connect with Baby. The dancing is also not that great.

This is also another case of 'I saw the sequel, before I saw the original' and maybe because of this I really love the sequel more and have a distaste for this one.

This has stood the test of time and is just as enjoyable. Patrick was one heck of a dancer, wish he’d done more.

A film that is well worth watching for the soundtrack alone, the story of Johnny and Baby's summer romance is a classic coming of age story that stands the test of time with a great final line.

Nobody puts Baby in the Corner. First time seeing the movie. It was enjoyable. I'm surprised at how progressive the movie was. I'm not certain it'd get made today, and that's a shame, because it's a good movie with real lessons.

While the plot is, to be brutally honest, simple to the point of being trite, the movie is still a total delight. Patrick Swayze radiates charisma like a true star, and his natural charm shines through the entire film. His dancing moves are absolutely a joy to see. A lot of films from the 70s and 80s truly haven't aged well, but the comedic and romantic aspects of this gem still hold up.

VERY GOOD 30th anniversary edition of film that I now have finally seen.
Excellent dancing, fun romance, and more...

I'm pretty biased because I've been enjoying this movie since it was released 29 years ago (inconceivable!) and I was a perfect tween age to love it. I rewatched it recently, and it still holds up for me. It has one of the best soundtracks of the '80s.

"Nobody puts Baby in a corner" -Johnny (Patrick Swayze) Random Tidbit: Patrick hated this line, he tried to get it out of the movie.

"I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you. " - Baby
