The best 80s movies of all-time No. 13: Dirty Dancing

It’s crazy to watch Dirty Dancing know that Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze hated each other during its filming. Neither of the two was directors Emile Ardolino’s first choice for their respective roles, and even after screen testing Swayze/Grey together, he still tried to find another actor to play Johnny. Finally, of course, he settled in on Swayze and the rest is history.

One thing we learned throughout the journey of Frances was that ‘Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner.’ The arc we get with Baby is a beautiful one. It’s filled with love, a little hard love and showed how hard work does pay off.

Although they may have hated each other while filming, their chemistry is phenomenal. Although Baby/Johnny doesn’t have your typical lovey-dovey story between the two, you can tell he smites her, and he likes her, but she also annoys the hell out of him. I loved the dynamic and I loved how they brought the two together and made them one.

It’s crazy how iconic this movie became as it was the first movie ever to sell a million units of VHS. “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” went on to win Oscar for Best Original Song and the Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. And the movie to this day is one of the most talked-about movies of ever.
