Dirty Dancing is my favorite movie. I have the DVD and the soundtrack. I just finished reading Patrick Swayze's autobiography \"The Time Of My Life\". It has everything about his career from beginning to end and he talks about the filming of his movies and TV shows in detail with pictures. It's a great book ! We lost a great actor when we lost Partick Swayze, may he rest in peace.

Dirty Dancing is my most favorite movie. I even like it as much as Gone With The Wind. They are both my favorites. I have both on DVD and will keep watching them forever.

Dirty Dancing is king! Great acting, sizzling chemistry between Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, wonderful dancing \, and a story line with a focus on the power of love! Sue Tabashnik Author, THE FANS' LOVE STORY: How The Movie 'DIRTY DANCING' Captured The Hearts Of MIllions!

THE BEST OF THE BEST MOVIES EVER!!!!! Patrick & Jennifer was the greatest love story ever...I have watched this movie at least 50 times... I play the music in my car all the time. Jennifer was fabulous on DWTS. So sad Patrick had to die such a horrible death. He left his mark on dancing! Dirty Dancing

Good production values, some nice dance sequences and a likable performance by Grey make the film more than watchable, especially for those acquainted with the Jewish tribal mating rituals that go on in the Catskill Mountain resorts. Full Review

Unfortunately, the idea for Dirty Dancing exceeds the execution...and the story resolves itself all too conveniently in that final scene. Full Review

Motivations are murky, the dialogue is flat. But the movie never lets too much plot get between the dance numbers. [21 Aug 1987] Full Review

Wall Street Journal
A warm-heared picture with some hot dancing, some B movie class consciousness, lots of nostalgia and lots of cliches. [3 Sept 1987, p.17(E)] Full Review
Marjorie Baumgarten
Austin Chronicle
But 'neath its candy-coated shell lies several solid grains of truth -- not to mention some fab choreography, a solid-gold title, and a couple of pristine examples (in Swayze and Grey) of what is meant by the term "career-making performance." Full Review
