You’ll have “the time of your life” at this romantic crowd-pleaser, set at a Catskills summer resort in 1963. Jennifer Grey (Ferris Bueller’s sister) plays Baby, a rich girl who finds herself attracted to a working-class dance instructor (Patrick Swayze). Primarily known for tough-guy roles, Swayze’s experience with the Joffrey Ballet (who knew?) prepared him for the role. We dare you to sit still during the film’s big finish. (“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”)
