My Favorite Movies - "D" is for Dirty Dancing

"Nobody puts Baby in the corner."

I don't care who you are - you know this line and you know where it comes from. When he pushes past Baby's father, grabs her hand and tells her to "Come on" ... oh my gosh, *swooooon*!

This movie has it all - a totally hot, sexy Patrick Swayze in his prime. Could that man dance?!?! It has love, betrayal, drama, mystery. It's the perfect movie. Did I mention the star of the movie being amazing?

The movie was released in 1987 making it almost 30 years old. (Now *I* feel old!) It's a classic, another movie people love to watch over and over and quote it just as often.

How about the scenes in the water? Or when Baby is practicing her dance moves on the bridge? Or when she risks everything to save a woman she barely knows? Or Johnny's tough guy shell with the heart of gold inside?

I can't think of one second of the movie that I dislike or wish wasn't included. It's just *that* good! What's your favorite part of the movie?
