Why Dirty Dancing RULES

First and foremost the soundtracks are amazing. There are 2-the one that you probably had in the 80', on tape. And a super secret one that has songs by Solomon Burke and Otis Redding. It you have I tunes or whatvs look it up!

Second, for some reason, even though I find Patrick Swayze completely unattractive, creepy and quite gross, I am totally in love the with movie. The characters are so interesting and plus it has dancing! It's been on satellite late at night lately, and I always get sucked into it----as if the outcome is going to be different and Johnny isn't still going to leave Baby stuck in the Catskills with her parents and kooky sister. Also, I could totally relate with Baby's geekiness. I always felt uncool and awkward like her and wanted to fit in with the cool kids. PLUS-hello?!?! There's dancing.

In other Dirty Dancing news...if you haven't watched this already you should. The first time I saw it was I was pregnant and a hormonal mess and it made me cry for some reason.

What's a movie that sucks you in everytime?

I get sucked into the Minnie Drive movie Beautiful, which I would THINK I would HATE, but instead I DON'T.

Minnie DRIVER, I mean.

I am lucky enough to have married one of the few straight guys who can ballroom dance (really well, I might add; he's got trophies galore) and so we too love Dirty Dancing. But the movie that gets me every time is While You Were Sleeping. I usually hate the lovey dovey movies, but I just so enjoy that one.

I also like My Best Friends Wedding because in the end, she doesn't get the guy which I thought was nice and not predictable.

c-32: i love my best friends wedding too! esp because her evil plotting doesn't pay off.

swistle: i like that movie too-it's always on TBS too!

I'm with you guys on My Best Friend's Wedding.

Only You is one of the those movies I can watch every single time it comes on TV. As if it's going to end differently this time? =)
