Our eyes may be to the sky today for the solar eclipse, but today marks a big anniversary in American entertainment.



Nobody put "baby" in a corner 30 years ago today. It's hard to believe it, but yes, it's been three decades since we had the "time of our lives" with Dirty Dancing

The film originally grossed $214 million during its 1987 release. ABC did a reboot of the hit musical earlier this year. It starred Abigal Breslin, Colt Prattes, Debra Messing, and Sarah Hyland. It was largely panned by critics. So instead it's reminder that you sometimes you can't beat the original.

Of course, we really miss Patrick Swayze on a day like today. We guess this means that we'll have to make time to watch the movie tonight.
