Am I missing something?

Saturday, May 7, 2011

So last Saturday while I was spending time doing laundry I watched Dirty Dancing.  First of all let me say that I can remember a time when this was on tv and my mom wouldn't let me watch it.  When I remembered that I had a chuckle.  

Anywho, I really don't see what's so great about this movie and after everytime I watch it I think ... eh!  I never had that childhood/teenage crush on Patrick Swayze.  I thought he was OLD because he was compared to who I was "in love with".  So maybe that is the primary reason that I don't get all weepy and emotionally involved in the story.  

Also, what's the big deal, a stuck up rich girl gets a taste of real life?  WOW!

Maybe it was just before my time, I mean I really don't see what the big deal is about most 80s movies and Paul is always shocked when I haven't see these "classics".  So I guess you love what you grow up with and apparently I was too young back in the day to watch it (you know all that "dirty dancing", abortion talk and rebel without a care scenes were apparently too much for a 8 year old).


  1. day a couple years ago they were playing a dirty dancing marathon and I watched it three times in a row...I like it A LOT. Prolly not a big surprise. lol.

  2. Cable deprived?
