Expecting the usual tedium that accompanies a summer in the Catskills with her family, 17-year-old Frances 'Baby' Houseman is surprised to find herself stepping into the shoes of a professional hoofer – and unexpectedly falling in love.
I must admit my girlfriend forced me to watch this film. I knew Dirty Dancing from a well-known scene and always thought it was a cult film. Boy, was I wrong! First, the male character Johnny Castle is so obnoxious that anything else is pointless. Patrick Swayze is never smiling and basically annoying as hell.
Many actors are incredibly bad (Baby's father!) and the story is so small it would fit on a post-it.
