Synopsis

A triple bill of feminine favourites. 'Dirty Dancing' (1987) was a decade-defining box office smash starring Patrick Swayze in one of his most famous roles. 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 R 'n' B hits of the day. The hotel's dance instructor Johnny (Swayze) catches her eye in particular, and, despite their differences in class, age and experience, the couple begin to fall in love. Features the Oscar-winning song '(I've Had) the Time of My Life' as performed by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes. In 'When Harry Met Sally' (1989), Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) first meet as students, when they share a disagreeable drive from Chicago to New York. Over the course of the next ten years they keep bumping into each other at various intervals, which generally seem to coincide with one of them having an emotional trauma. Will their platonic relationship turn into something more? Rob Reiner's hugely successful romantic comedy features Meg Ryan infamously faking an orgasm in a Manhattan deli. The hugely popular comedy 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' (1994) established Hugh Grant as Hollywood's favourite bumbling Brit, and garnered Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Richard Curtis' screenplay. Shy Londoner Charles (Grant) meets American Carrie (Andie MacDowell) at a friend's wedding and enjoys a one-night stand with her. The next time they meet, again at a wedding, Carrie is accompanied by a rich fiancé, leaving Charles heartbroken. Never mind: with another wedding on the horizon, there is still time for him to pitch his woo and win the love of his transatlantic sweetheart. The film spawned not only a hit single for Wet Wet Wet with 'Love Is All Around', but also a best-selling poetry anthology, inspired by an on-screen reading of WH Auden's 'Funeral Blues'.
