Dirty Dancing 20th Anniversary Edition

The 20th Anniversary of one of the most popular dancing movies gracefully dances its way onto DVD that has been digitally remastered with a video and audio quality not seen before. The difference between the original DVD movie and the remastered edition is outstanding with exceptionally sharp picture quality and vivid colours with a minimal amount of artifacting.

Dirty Dancing is your classic forbidden love story that revolves around Johnny (Patrict Swayze) and Baby (Jennifer Grey) with that classic saying of "Nobody puts Baby in a corner!" Whilst not the most challenging of storylines, what endeared most of us to Dirty Dancing was the sheer passion with which both main characters played their parts in the movie. Jennifer Grey plays the part of Francis "Baby" Houseman who has gone with her parents to a resort where the in-house entertainment headed up by Swayze do their best to entertain the guests night after night.

Baby becomes infatuated with Johnny (Swayze) who isn't exactly taken by the rich girl, however he teaches her a few moves. When Johnny's regular partner cannot be there for Johnny's after hours gigs where he Dirty Dances, he reluctantly agrees to teach Baby a few moves and over the course of the instructions finds himself drawn to her. The rest of the movie is history which you should know.

Dirty Dancing is a great DVD packed with features, however the video does hit some low points with degrees of softness present throughout in parts of the movie, obscuring details in some circumstances. This is more something that won't detract from the average person's enjoyment of the movie but just a little niggly thing that I noticed.

Rhe Special features of Dirty Dancing 20th Anniversary features a plethora of extras that include an iron-on T-Shirt transfer, the original screen test of Jennifer Grey and some interesting out-takes and deleted scenes.

A must have for all fans and newcomers!
