Stars: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey

The allure of the bad boy who's not really a bad boy at all. Swayze's Johnny Castle character is working class, and a goy, but he's a talented dancer who wants to make something of himself. Daddy doesn't see it that way, though. The fact that Jennifer Grey's character is called "Baby" seals the deal—this is a classic case of daddy-won't-listen. At the very least, the film will make your date recall feelings of rebellion for its own sake that have been dormant since maybe this morning.
