Stop that.

Last week, we asked you to name the most memorable scene from 1987 cheeseball classic Dirty Dancing.

On offer was a PAIR of tickets to see it on the big screen again at selected ODEON cinemas across Ireland on May 21 at 6.30pm. tickets here

You applied in your tens.

But there can be only one winner.

In reverse order then…

Scooperman: “The most memorable scene from Dirty Dancing was the sister singing that weird hula song.”

edalicious: “The most memorable scene in Dirty Dancing is SPECIFICALLY the the little hip thrusts he does after jumping off the stage in the big finale. No other man on the planet could do that without looking like a massive perv. Believe me, I’ve tried…”


Jonboy: “Obviously it’s the scene where they dance to Love Is Strange (How do you call your lover boy? Come here, lover boy!). Apparently it was an unscripted warm-up where they were just fooling around, pretending to flirt, and the director liked it so much he kept it in.”

Thanks all.


Last week: Swayze For You
