About the time “Dirty Dancing” came out, a lot of other studios jumped on the nostalgia bandwagon to cash in. Films like “Shag – The Movie” & “Aloha Summer” tried to capture the same nostalgia, but wasn’t able to capture the dollars that “Dirty Dancing” had (“Aloha Summer” grossed less than $500k).
1959, the year Hawaii became a state. A group of teens from different walks of life get together and have adventures during their summer holiday. There are a few stars, a young Tia Carrere (before “Wayne’s World”) & Chris Makepeace (“Meatballs” & “My Bodyguard”) among others.
