Things about Dirty Dancing you only notice as an adult
If you spent the better part of your childhood pretending to do the iconic lift scene from Dirty Dancing, you're definitely not alone. At the lake, in the pool, off the sofa — countless '90s kids (and even younger generations) have risked limbs and collected bruises in pursuit of perfecting the classic moment between Baby Houseman and Johnny Castle. Nostalgia reigns supreme where this 1987 flick is concerned.

If you were to re-watch the movie, would it still strike you the same? Or would your added life perspective lead you to look at the movie in a new light? Lean into the latter by considering the following things you only notice about Dirty Dancing as an adult.
