‘Dirty Dancing’ at 30: How Baby and Johnny Won Over the Skeptics

18 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s been 30 years since Baby and Johnny had the time of their life, but “Dirty Dancing” remains as popular as when it opened on Aug. 21, 1987. Actually, it’s even more popular: When the ABC remake aired May 24 this year, fans immediately registered anger and/or disappointment on social media. It was a reminder that the magic of the 1987 version could not be duplicated.

The original “Dirty Dancing” was one of the summer’s biggest surprises. It was filmed on a $6 million budget and earned $213 million at the box office, plus has a long and booming afterlife in video and spinoffs.

Filming of the Vestron movie — written by Eleanor Bergstein and directed by Emile Ardolino — was done on two main locations: Lake Lure in N.C., and the Mountain Lake Lodge in Giles County, Va. Mountain Lake was responsible for many of the exterior shots. The lodge, built in the 1930s, had »

Dirty Thirty: 7 Facts to Celebrate 30 Years of Dirty DancingDirty Thirty: 7 Facts to Celebrate 30 Years of Dirty DancingKurt Anthony8/17/2017 10:29:00 Am

It’s time to lace up your dancing shoes, find yourself a bungalow bunny, and start practicing the pachanga, because today is the 30th anniversary of Dirty Dancing!

Leaping onto the silver screen, Dirty Dancing made its theatrical debut on August 21, 1987 and instantly won over the hearts – and feet – of teen and adult audiences alike. Directed by Emile Ardolino (Sister Act) and featuring the rhythmic chemistry of Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze, the romantic dance drama went on to earn over $213M worldwide, along with being the first film to sell more than a million copies on VHS.

With a multi-platinum soundtrack, the Oscar, Golden Globe, and Grammy Award for Best Original Song (“(I’ve Had the Time of My Life”), and choreography by former Gene Kelly student, Kenny Ortega (High School Musical, »

Power Hour: Have the time of your life with 60 minutes of schlocky movie love songs

15 August 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Power Hour creates one tight 60-minute set from a musician’s discography or a genre, picking both big hits and deeper cuts.

Film has been used as a vehicle to increase the popularity of particular songs as far back as the black-and-white musical days, when legendary songwriters like Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and the Gershwin brothers penned tunes for movies that remain standards today. The popularity of the movie musical has waned over the decades (La La Land notwithstanding), but the success of 1970s movie soundtracks like those for Saturday Night Fever and Grease convinced some songwriters that a hit movie was a great way to present a song. The most popular of these were love songs, some decidedly more successful than others.

In honor of the 30th anniversary of Dirty Dancing and the 25th of The Bodyguard, we’ve pulled together 60 minutes of the schlockiest romantic movie themes »

20 Songs You Adored From the Original Dirty Dancing Soundtrack

14 August 2017 9:20 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Dirty Dancing is more than the story of one girl's sexual awakening over a sweaty Summer in the Catskills; it's a rollicking good time filled with hits from the '60s. While ABC has remade the movie and replaced nearly all the songs with modern covers, we'll always be partial to the original soundtrack. It features Frankie Valli, The Ronnettes, Otis Redding, The Drifters, and more. Of course, the crown jewel of the collection is "(I've Had) The Time of My Life." Listen to all the songs below, and flash back to the first time you ever saw Baby carry that watermelon. RelatedDirty Dancing: Where Are They Now? »

Revisiting the film of Stephen King's Sleepwalkers

13 August 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rebecca Lea Aug 14, 2017

Our Stephen King screen lookbacks arrive at Sleepwalkers, a movie based on an unpublished short story...

The film: Charles Brady (Brian Krause) and his mother, Mary (Alice Krige) are sleepwalkers, which are a sort of werecat vampires who feed on virgin women in order to survive. The only things that threaten them are cats, who show up wherever they go. After draining a girl in Bodega Bay, they set up residence in Travis, Indiana with their sights set on local teen Tanya Richardson (Mädchen Amick) for their next feed. Mary is one mother you don’t won’t like when she’s hangry.

It’s not every day you would see a formerly married couple work together. On tonight’s America’s Got Talent, it’s about to happen. Twenty more acts perform for a spot in the final top seven. The night started off with Artyon and Paige performing to the song from Dirty Dancing. I am nothing short of impressed by their performance, but I don’t know if it’s enough to earn them a spot in the top seven.

Ouch! British Couple Attempt Dirty Dancing Lift for Their Upcoming Wedding but Fail Miserably

14 July 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Time of their lives? Well, not exactly!

A British couple trying to recreate the famous lift scene from Dirty Dancing did far more than put baby in the corner: They put themselves into the emergency ward.

The calamitous couple — who were planning to perform the lift at their upcoming wedding reception — attempted a dry-run of their Hollywood homage in the garden of a pub in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, on Saturday in a “spur of the moment” decision to “get a bit of practice in,” Andy Price, 51, told the BBC.

Five Movies That Didn’t Seem Offensive When They First Came Out

What makes a movie offensive is sometimes in the eye of the beholder. For example, when I went to see Dirty Dancing when it first premiered in theaters in 1987 I thought the opening credits were great with all those working class kids like me gyrating around but by the time we met “Baby” I was struggling to keep down my soda and scanning for the nearest exit. Despite the fact that everyone I knew loved it, acted out the scenes ad nauseum and sang that dang song till my ears bled I learned to endure the public’s fascination with
