DIRTY DANCING (1987) GO! 9.30PM, M, ROMANCE
Hard to believe it’s more than 20 years since ’80s heartthrob, the late Patrick Swayze stole the heart of young Jennifer Grey – and a host of female fans – as sexy dance instructor Johnny Castle. The plot may be familiar enough on the surface – innocent girl becomes a woman over the course of a passionate summer – but the added excursions into the changing US psyche during the summer of ’63 make this more than a boy-gets-girl weepy. Dance fans will love the moves, the romance is laid on heavy, and the soundtrack sold millions. Enjoy.
