So…ladies- and guys- of the Straight Dope. I need your aid.
It appears a popular stereotype that all males hate the film “Dirty Dancing.” (Jester is a male. He hates- no, abhors- it. There’s one example!) Now, in order to prove my thesis…(Males detest the movies. Females love it. This may be due to a strange chemical. More on this later.)
So, are you male? Are you female? Did you like it? Were you in love with Patrick Swayze (sp?)? Did you think the music rocked. Do you cry in that last scene where they dance to (I’ve Had) the Time of my Life? I want answers.
For the record- I’m female. I like this movie. I know, I know, it’s stupid…not a great movie at all, and corny. But it just makes me feel so good when I watch it and see the ending. And I like listening to the soundtrack. Everyone needs a guilty pleasure, right?
What are the teeming millions cogitating?
