Blue Starlite Drive-In: Valentine's Week:
In this beloved but corny fairy tale, a Jewish princess emerges from her protective isolation and, naturally, falls for a boy who spells "big trouble." But 'neath its candy-coated shell are several solid grains of truth – not to mention some fab choreography, a solid-gold title, and a couple of pristine examples (in Swayze and Grey) of what is meant by the term "career-making performance." Read a full review of Dirty Dancing.

Blue Starlite Drive-In: Valentine's Week: This whimsical, comedic fairy tale was written by William Goldman, who adapted his cult novel for the screen. The film has gone on to acquire its own cultish devotees. It's directed by This Is Spinal Tap's Rob Reiner, who here abandons his previous movie's sense of farce and satire for much broader and more innocuous comedy.
