Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Dirty Dancing works best when it's most direct and unpretentious.
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.
Fresh: Good production values, some nice dance sequences and a likable performance by Grey make the film more than watchable.
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.

One of my Personal favorites
Like many born in the 1980's I grew up watching this movie. What I like about it the most, is the music. The music is just so catchy and memorable and the dances are rather...kinky. But this movie is a must have if you love music, romance, and a good comic relief.
