I also adore this movie. It captures the audience, you feel every emotion with Johnny and Baby, you experience it all with them. I remember watching this at the age of 12 with girlfriends at a slumber party, and we kept rewinding the part where it shows Patrick Swayze's butt for 2 seconds! It was glorious! The dancing is phenomenal (Patrick was a classically trained dancer before injury changed his course) and the music is a perfect backdrop to the events that unfold. Patrick even sings the song, "She's Like the Wind" which is in the movie.
It is the perfect summer movie. Get inspired and get out of your corner, grab your Johnny, and get Dirty Dancing!
My favorite part of the movie is this scene:
