Triple bill of romantic comedies. In 'Dirty Dancing' (1987), Frances 'Baby' Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is a teenage girl on holiday with her family at a resort in the Catskill Mountains. Stumbling upon an off-limits, employees-only party, she witnesses the staff getting down and dirty to the hits of the day. The hotel's dance instructor Johnny (Patrick Swayze) catches her eye in particular, and, despite their differences in class, age and experience, the couple begin to fall in love. In 'Love Actually' (2003), eight stories involving the love lives of more than a dozen characters are brought together over one Christmas and climax on Christmas Eve; from the recent widower Daniel (Liam Neeson), the failing marriage of Karen (Emma Thompson) and Harry (Alan Rickman), the aging rocker (Bill Nighy), through to the Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) falling for a member of Number 10's staff (Martine McCutcheon). Finally, in 'My Best Friend's Wedding' (1997), Julianne Potter (Julia Roberts) has just realised that she is in love with her best friend Michael O'Neal (Dermot Mulroney), but there's a problem: Michael has recently announced his up-coming marriage to the hare-brained Kimmy (Cameron Diaz). Enlisting the help of her gay friend George Downes (Rupert Everett), Julianne resolves to sabotage Michael's big day and win him back for herself. But when Kimmy turns out to be such a kind and likeable person, Julianne wonders if she's doing the right thing after all.
