Great DVD Of A Great Movie

by carlupq on 7/5/2007

This 20th anniversary edition is well done. Good video quality (anamorphic wide-screen) and good audio. Extras are very good.

Love the movie, not the service.

on 12/1/2008

This is one of my favorite movies ever. Sadly, I ordered it, paid for it, and never got it. Still upset about this.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review A small film that wasn't expected to be anything fabulous, Dirty Dancing defied the odds to become both a box office smash and part of popular culture in 1987. The film is actually much better than people think, and its popularity is still going strong...Dance films were in vogue in the 1980s. In that decade, we were "treated" to such films as Breakin' (1983), Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo (1984), Body Rock (1984), Fast Forward (1985), and Dancers (1987). All of these films have one thing in common: they're terrible. So common sense would ask: why should a low-budget film entitled Dirty Dancing be any different?...Dear readers, Dirty Dancing turns out to be the real thing. It's one of the few dance pictures made in contemporary times that doesn't insult the intelligence of the audience. It's honest and entertaining, something few Hollywood films are these days.

Review It's 1963 and Baby (Grey) is visiting a resort in the Catskills with her family. She meets Johnny (Swayze) who is a dance instructor, and before you can say "out-of-commission-dance-partner" Johnny and Baby are busy practising the horizontal mambo...The supporting cast is solid, but the whole thing hinges on Grey and Swayze's chemistry, and, oh my, do they ever sizzle...The interesting thing here is that she is the aggressor. The first time 17-year-old Baby sees Johnny dance in the smoky staff hang-out, something happens to her. She has discovered sex and she knows that she wants some...Dirty Dancing has that rare teenaged female character who knows exactly what she desires and gets it without suffering some terrible retribution. Even if what she wants is sex. Not to mention that the character who has an abortion doesn't get punished for it...All of which makes Dirty Dancing the perfect film for the feminist romantic in all of us.

Quotes
David Ansen, NewsWeek Jennifer Grey is a knockout.
Jami Bernard, New York Post ...[Swayze] is a seething mass of sensuality...
Jeffrey Lyons, INN/Sneak Previews Absolutely sensational!
The New York Times Excellent performances...the dancing, especially the dirty dancing, has a drive and a pulse that gives the film real excitement.
Wendy Wilson, TNT's Rough Cut ...a phenomenon...the enduring appeal of the feature lies beyond the pelvic thrusts...
