See if they will be the right fit for your movie night. 1. Dirty Dancing: This 1980s flick stands the test of time 25 years later. Baby, a good girl from an afflu- ent family, falls in love with Johnny, a drifter dance instructor, while she's on a family vacation at a Catskills summer resort. This movie showcases that sometimes love transcends prestige, personal status and well- meaning fathers. 2.

Family strife and com- plications show the darker side of love. 7. A .Room With a View: Lucy vacations in Italy, where she meets people who are more passion-driv- en than those in her native Britain.

Sleepless in Seattle: Sam loses his wife Maggie and has to raise his son, Jonah alone in their new hometown of Seattle.
