Maybe the greatest adventure movie ever made, directed by Steven Spielberg based on an idea from George Lucas. Archeology professor/action hero Indiana Jones (“Trust me”) is searching for the legendary lost Ark of the Covenant.

DIRTY DANCING (1987)

You’ll have “the time of your life” at this romantic crowd-pleaser, set at a summer resort in 1963. Jennifer Grey (Ferris Bueller’s sister) plays Baby, a rich girl attracted to a working-class dance instructor (Patrick Swayze). Tough guy Swayze’s experience with the Joffrey Ballet (who knew?) prepared him for the role. We dare you to sit still during the film’s big finish. ("Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”) Rated PG-13
