"Oh my goodness, are you still crying?" snorts Miss Ninja as we watched the movie Dirty Dancing last evening. Yes, laugh if you must (and I know Dave is) but...this movie chokes me up every single time. And trust me, I've watched it a LOT of times. Used to be that I couldn't go past it on TV, didn't matter when the movie had started, I'd stop channel flipping and watch to the end. Now I own my own copy so I can watch it anytime.
I don't even know what it is about the movie that so captivates me. I'm not a huge Patrick Swayze fan or anything (although he has some mighty fine dance moves in this film!) I love the ebb and flow of the relationships between Baby and Johnny, and between Baby and her father. I can't explain it, this cheesy movie just tugs at my heartstrings, no matter how often I watch.
