  • One of the best Pure Cheese films of the 80's. The ladies will never get enough of it ... the guys would never want to admit they like it ... but if they are honest with themselves ... they wanted to be as smooth as Swayze was in this film.
  • Some classic unforgettable dialogue and scenes!
  • Great soundtrack. The title song "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" actually picked up an Oscar for Best Original Song.
The summer of 1963 innocent 17-year-old Baby (Grey) vacations with her parents at a Catskill's resort. One evening she is drawn to the staff quarters by stirring music. There she meets Johnny, the hotel dance instructor, who is as experienced as Baby is naive. Baby soon becomes Johnny's pupil in dance and love.
Johnny
Nobody puts Baby in a corner.
Baby
I carried a watermelon.

[Johnny walks away]

[to herself] Carried a watermelon?
Johnny
Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space. This is your dance space. I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine. You gotta hold the frame.
Baby
Me? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you.
Penny
Oh, come on, ladies. God wouldn't have given you maracas if He didn't want you to shake 'em.
