About This Quiz

Did you have the time of your life watching Dirty Dancing? Take this quiz to find out just how much you remember from this iconic film.

It's hard to believe that it's been three decades since we were all at theaters watching this blockbuster film. Released in the late summer of 1987, "Dirty Dancing" remains one of the most popular films of all time. The movie depicted a summer relationship between 17-year-old Jennifer Grey, who played Frances Houseman, and Patrick Swayze, who played dance instructor Johnny Castle. Grey's character was nicknamed "Baby," which, if you don't recall, is where the famous line, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner," comes from. The movie gave us a glimpse of what young people do at those summer resorts as mom and dad, played by Jane Brucker and Jerry Orbach (yes, THAT Jerry Orbach... there was life before "Law and Order," you know), socialized with the grown-ups.

The film grossed $214 million from a paltry $6 million budget and won numerous awards. The movie soundtrack spawned four hit single releases and sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. The film's legacy includes a potential remake in the pike.
