Even though Dirty Dancing was produced in 1987, it is clear to say that it still gets us up onto our feets to dance 'like noone is watching!' It is a shock to find out that Dirty Dancing - a box office hit - was in fact a low-budget film! However, that didn't change anything!
The storyline itself catches the eye of the audience - set in the summer of 1963 in a interactive resort in the Catskill Mountains, a young 17 year old girl named Frances "Baby" Houseman (Played by Jennifer Grey) is taking a vacation with her family. A plain, innocent get-away leads to Baby to ultimately 'come out of her shell' by falls in love with with the handsome and flirtatious dance instructor Johnny Castle (Played by Patrick Swayze).
It is fair to say that this was every girls fantasy, falling in love with the guy of EVERYONEs dream vice versa! Who wouldn't want that!
DIRECTING: The director Emile Ardolino has undoubtably provided a box office hit with the plot, storyline, characters and every element for the film. With only a budget of $6 million, the talented Emile Ardolino caused the film to have an outstanding box office of $214 million. I'm sure the figures themselves highlight the positive outcome of the film.
ACTORS: Patrick Swazye and Jennifer Grey provided a brilliant representation of the character. Jonny's serious nature being shown to have an emotional side is portrayed through Swayze's body language and favial expressions. Grey's own acting skills plays an amazing role, showing her awkwardness in the setting, contrasting her from the other characters.
EDITING: The film shows many different scenes, many different characters, and many different scenarioes all in which edited beautifully. The flow of each sceneis created positively, providing the manipulation of time to be unnoticable. FUN FACT: The director used actual footage of the bloopers between Swayze and Grey (scene where she is learning to dance and she keeps laughing, showing his seriousness) -yeah...He was not happy!
Last but not least, the SOUND!: The moment people hear 'Time of my life', their thoughts instantly go to Dirty Dancing and the major dance scene at the end of the film. This effect it has, has left a positive remark as this highlights the memorable film which is still sa classic and amazing to this very day!
I recommend watching it - if you haven't have guessed
