However you might personally feel about the film, there’s a reason so many girls formed such a strong attachment to Dirty Dancing. It tells a tale of romance, eroticism and empowerment designed to hit all the right notes for a puberty-addled girlteen.
A videogame adaptation consisting of minigames, including a buffet-based tile puzzle, Sims-style furniture purchase and arranging pictures of dancing couples around, inexplicably, a large melon, doesn’t quite seem to have realised the point of the movie. Though the one in which in you have to navigate the Baby analogue (actor likenesses and official soundtrack appearances seem to be minimal) along a very, very long tree trunk perhaps might be some horrific allusion to the character’s deflowered-by-Swayze scene.
