ReviewSource Washington Post
Review Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot. Dirty Dancing is Saturday Night Fever with merengue on top, a Flashdance of the Borsch Belt, a razzle-dazzler of a romance set to the sultry sounds of the '60s...Do you love me? asked that music, and young America said yes, grinding out affirmation in dance as erotic as foreplay. Will you still love me tomorrow? the music asked again. And again the answer was yes, as the dancers touched and arched their necks and teased the night...Cynthia Rhodes, a leggy Flashdancer, glides far more grandly as Johnny's partner Penny. She's a polished, hard-luck professional who is sidelined early in the story. And Baby volunteers to fill the void. Johnny teaches Baby to merengue, expressing his contempt for this rich kid with provocative badgering. But Baby's a quick study and her awkwardness turns to agility. Then the whole movie becomes an excuse to watch this pair move, their gorgeous bodies caressed by intimate cinematography...Swayze, who studied ballet with the Joffrey, takes the lead. A dark blond with a heavy, sensual face, he moves with macho grace, a cross of Brando and Balanchine. From the neck up, he looks like a guy who could fix your carburetor; from the neck down he has the body of an Olympian...This odd couple dance to Kenny Ortega's choreography all movie long, so don't expect a lot of dialogue. It's supplementary to Ortega's love-story-in-motion, an abandoned rock waltz with dips we haven't seen since silent movie sheiks. The sound track, with its black and Latin roots, is a pre-Beatles me'lange meant to presage the decade to come. That was the context for the screenplay, according to Eleanor Bergstein, the coproducer and screen writer, who bases the movie on her own dirty dancing days...There's a lot of growing up in this feverish fairy tale, a Sleeping Beauty with bagels. It's precisely directed by Emile Ardolino, who won an Oscar for his documentary "He Makes Me Feel Like Dancing." He, too, is a man who makes you feel like dancing. Dirty Dancing is at area theaters and rated PG-13 because it includes adult situations and profanity.
