The movie that took the world by storm in 1987, and had all of us cringing while our mom's talked about Patrick Swayze's butt. Yes, its Dirty Dancing, and oddly enough NONE of the 3 hosts had seen this movie. Partially because it was marketed towards women and 14 year old girls, and partially because it came out during the same summer as Predator, Robocop and to a lesser extent, Summer School.
This movie has a very interesting history and it is lucky that it was released at all. We discuss the making of the film, the story, the history of the borscht belt resorts and much more on episode 198.
Then stay tuned for our question of the week based on Dirty Dancing What are the top 5 dance movies?
