Nobody puts NO POPCORN in a corner. 1987’s Dirty Dancing comes into focus as Dave Hanratty, David Higgins and Norma Howard reunite on Valentine’s Day to discuss the revered and rhythmic Patrick Swayze/Jennifer Grey romance.

Is this one of the great soundtracks? Does it have more to say than your average love-themed adventure? Is there enough dancing? And what does it have in common with The Irishman? All this and more on this episode.
