A summertime and Catskills classic. Baby (Jennifer Grey) is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she’s disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the mountains with her parents. Her luck turns around, however, when the resort’s dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner.
“Coming of age one 60’s summer in the Catskills. Sweetly seething, like Swayze’s samba.” — Vincent Canby, New York Times
