The year was 1987. The dancing was dirty. So dirty, in fact, that there needed to be a movie about it. Cue Patrick Swayze. Cue Jennifer Gray. Cue greatness. And that greatness is the film Dirty Dancing.
The movie captured the hearts and minds of people everywhere, mostly due to some iconic scenes, like this one:
And who could forget this dance move? Heck, even Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling did it in a completely different movie decades later and it was still awesome.
I could go on and on about what makes the original so incredible, but that's not the point. The point is that any successful movie or series eventually gets watered down in some form or another. Whether it be needless sequels, lame TV shows, or too many spin-offs. The lowest common denominator of "milking," however, has to be the dreaded made-for-TV movie. Remember when The Shining was turned into a miniseries? Yeah, there's probably a reason you don't.
At least it's got that going for it?
