About the Movie

The summer of 1963 innocent 17-year-old Baby (Jennifer Grey) vacations with her parents at a Catskill's resort. One evening she is drawn to the staff quarters by stirring music. There she meets Johnny (Patrick Swayze), the hotel dance instructor, who is as experienced as Baby is naive. Baby soon becomes Johnny's pupil in dance and love.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Dirty Dancing works best when it's most direct and unpretentious. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: If the ending of Eleanor Bergstein's script is too neat and inspirational, the rough energy of the film's song and dance does carry one along, past the whispered doubts of better judgment. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Mar 25, 2013

Fresh: Good production values, some nice dance sequences and a likable performance by Grey make the film more than watchable. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The dance finale between Gray and Swayze, although an obvious crowd-pleaser, is performed to a contemporary song clearly intended for the charts, which blows the period feel right off the dance floor. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010
