Me too. I think it's especially poignant because Patrcik Swayze died prematurely.

It is a fairly crap film though - great but crap

Me too. Dh has just gone hmm and told DS 'it's a bird thing'. I still get butterflies when they do the jump at the end smile.

YANBU at all!
Today was the first time I've watched since Patrick Swayze died, and the first time I've cried! Although I started at the point where he jumps off the stage and dances down the aisle by himself! I never really fancied him until now either!
Although what did spring to mind, was that all my friends and I used to practise the dance routines in the playground back in primary school. It now seems slightly inappropriate, looking back blush

I cry every time, but do find the film unsatisfying as they don't get together in the end! I like my sap to fit the formula! Endings that are happily ever after, not the start of a new life.

No definitely YANBU. Gets me every time!

I love this film,I always wish there was more, so we can see them living together happilly ever after.

How does everyone know they don't end up together? Am I missing something?

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Jun-12 21:20:54

What is wrong with everybody? Stop crying at that awful film. grin

Dance instructor from holiday camp takes virginity of young girl. Do we ever find out how old she was supposed to be?

If they did not end up together, one has to hope her future sexual partners were not a disappointment after the rather high standards that had been set.

I am no film buff. I love St Elmo's Fire and About Last Night. blush

besmirchedandbewildered Sun 17-Jun-12 21:29:18

sparkling she must be 17/18 because she's going to university after the summer ("Mount Holyoke in the Fall", to be precise)

It pains me to reveal I remember it in that level of detail blush

MrsHelsBels74 Sun 17-Jun-12 21:30:16

Doesn't she say at the beginning she's 17?

Sparklingbrook Sun 17-Jun-12 21:32:24

Mmm that makes it slightly better. grin
