Dirty Dancing Is Hitting Netflix This Weekend
follow us on
It looks like your weekend viewing schedule might need rejigging as it turns out Netflix have only gone and landed Dirty Dancing!
The legendary movie hits the streaming service this Sunday (September 1st), so don’t go letting anyone ‘put you in the corner’ and ruin your Sunday with ‘other plans’.
In case you haven’t seen it, set in the 1960s, Dirty Dancing tells the story of Frances 'Baby' Houseman, a young woman whose trip to a holiday resort with her family ends up with her falling head over heels in love with dance instructor Johnny Castle.
Starring Patrick Swayze as Johnny and Jennifer Grey as Baby, the film is packed with iconic - sometimes watery - dance numbers and killer lines, but even better, to use the words of Mr Jack Black: “The soundtrack kicks f*cking ass!”
Featuring the likes of ‘Be My Baby’ by The Ronettes, ‘Hungry Eyes’ by Eric Carmen, ‘In The Still Of The Night’ by The Five Satins and of course ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’ by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes, it’ll have you singing away that hangover!
When Dirty Dancing first hit cinemas back in 1987 it was an instant box office smash and even became the first ever movie to sell more than a million copies on 'home video’.
If (for some inexplicable reason) you don’t find yourself in the mood for a bit of 60s feelgood nostalgia, there are some other big releases hitting Netflix in September.
A new Netflix original series, Unbelievable, will be landing on the streaming service in the next couple of weeks.
Inspired by the true story of teenager Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever) the series follows the young woman as she files a police report claiming she's been sexually abused by an intruder.
Nobody believes her until hundreds of miles away, detectives begin exploring a similar case and the two departments partner to track down the perpetrator.
Unbelievable is scheduled for release on Friday, September 13th.
In the meantime though, why not wile away a Sunday afternoon having ‘the time of your life’… you know you won’t regret it.
