Dirty Dancing Review-
Ok so , I just want to state right of the bat. This movie made me a bisexual mess.... both Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey... I just. God this movie.
Something I want to congratulate this movie for is their soundtrack. It’s actually extremely clever and PERFECTION though the entire film. I love when movies will do that, when the songs are not just for background but actually hold deeper meaning either in the title or lyrics. Like how half the songs, though love songs like any other , specifically included Baby. Also all the songs were just catchy as hell but that’s just me. Love is strange. That whole scene just mmm 👌
The story is actually more then I expected initially, the setting is both kinda ￼ hysterical but also extremely efficient? Just Dance instructor that drives the ￼ cougars wild is both funny and sad. The movie does do the common storyline of
￼￼seamingly has everything
Throw money at problem or get daddy’s help and it’s fine
Except uh oh being rich means basically being a prop to your parents and not your on thing, you think you know it all when you know nothing in life
Envy those below you, romanticizing being poor but are shocked when it’s not that great
Doesn’t have much
Rough on the outside, doesn’t want to show the other anything, actually a sweetie
The responsibilities￼ ￼ , stress, work and work , was on the streets or street ™️ at some point
Envy and hate those above you to find out it’s not that great for them either
However semi tropy that is I’m always a sucker for the Romeo and Juliet , wrong side of the tracks sort of romance. If my obsession with pretty in pink hasn’t told you that yet. I’m also loving that it’s also a stand up for what you love/ believe in story as well as a Get with the times old man™️ sort of thing. As much as it does the more trope/basic plot points it stands out to me personally. I’m not usually a romance person but I’m living for this movie.
I’m really not doing it justice by just talking about the tropes it does. Penny, the whole major plot point around her? How the problem pushes forth the entire plot itself? Also how teaching baby to dance leads to several montage scenes .... have I ever mentioned how I’m a SUCKER for montage scenes especially with great music.
Do I even need to talk about the dancing?! Like holy shit. Yes yes yes yes yes yes hello yes.
The outfits, the music, the dancing?! Hell yes
Also all my love for Tito. You were there for 3 minutes and I love you.
I don’t care who you are, this line is WAY better then the baby in a corner one :
I feel a new obsession coming on and I blame absolutely all of you even though no one ￼ suggested it
