|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Superficial but audience-pleasing tale of spoiled teenage girl who learns something about real life--as well as a thing or two about dancing--during family vacation at a Catskills, N. Y. , resort hotel in the early 1960s. Sparked by some hot dance numbers, and star-making performance of Grey (daughter of Joel) opposite actor-dancer Swayze. Most of the music is 1980s-style, not 1960s, but it seems to work. For a richer portrait of Catskills life see another 1987 release, SWEET LORRAINE. Oscar winner for best song: ``(I've Had) The Time of My Life. '' Followed by a TV series.
