I am trying to figure out why this upsets me . Its hard to pinpoint. It could be that I saw "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost" a million times(well maybe not a million......but at least a half dozen). I guess I am not alone. From what I can gather , most women who were either a teenager or a young adult during the 80's , had a "special fondness" for those to movies. Maybe "Dirty Dancing" , at least was such a "coming of age" movie for women. It gave us permission to "appreciate" a very good looking guy in a rough, yet sensative role.
Okay...so maybe it is also the passing of an era........ that whole 80's early 90's time when it was cool to be a "Young Republican" and appreciate firvilous movies at the theater. That may be what I am missing....not to mention missing one of the sexist men of his time.
