Dirty Dancing

Factual error: In the scene when Baby is changing her clothes in the back of Johnny's car the lights and shadows in the car are moving in the wrong direction. (00:49:30)

Factual error: After the part where they were at breakfast and discussing the idea of leaving early, you can overhear the radio and the announcer says, "Oh, those Mets! What a team! Finally broke their 22 game losing streak!" The longest losing streak for the New York Mets is currently only 17 games, which was in 1962, a year before the setting of the movie. (01:00:33)

Factual error: Notice Baby's white Keds shoes with the blue emblem on the back of them. That style of Keds didn't come out until the 80s.

Suggested correction: Keds were released in 1916 and were worn by Marilyn Monroe in the 1952 film "Clash by Night." They did gain major popularity in 1969 after Yoko Ono wore them for her wedding to John Lennon.

Continuity mistake: When Baby's family drive into Kellerman's you can see the back of the mum's head, and her hair is blonde. In the rest of the movie she has red hair. This is because the original actress cast as her mother changed after filming had already begun. (00:02:55)

More quotes from Dirty Dancing

Trivia: In the scene where Johnny and Baby practice dancing, and she keeps laughing when he runs his arm down hers, it was not part of the scene, she was actually laughing and his frustration was genuine. They left it in the movie because it was effective. Baby falling over in this scene was unplanned too.
