Summer classic film "Dirty Dancing" was released almost exactly 25 years ago on Aug. 21, 1987, and it holds a PG-13 rating.
The film stars Jennifer Grey as Frances "Baby" Houseman and the late Patrick Swayze as Johnny Castle who play a young innocent and a dance instructor at a Catskills resort, respectively, who improbably fall in love amid a scandal.
Lots of raised eyebrows going on here.
The dancing alone in this flick is SO much fun to watch (that jump!) but it introduced some great quotes, too, most notably the one spoken by Johnny:
"Nobody puts Baby in a corner."
Aside from the dirty dancing part of the film from which it gets its name, the movie also shines a light on some of the political controversies of the day, namely abortion.
Key to this flick's success is the sound track which has won numerous awards. Most memorable are "Time of My My Life" and "She's Like the Wind."
It's a great one see again (and again and again) and a perfect note on which to end the summer!
