  • Seems quite good justice for the attacker to pay a substantial sum to the person he assaulted, to carry out a some unpaid work in the community and have a supervision order. Certainly much cheaper than sending him to prison.

  • So you don't go to prison for assaulting a Police Officer quite badly ! Great Country we live in ! No wonder members of the public hardly get any justice when they are assaulted .

It would take a phenomenal effort to produce a bad Dirty Dancing show. The 1987 coming-of-age drama is ripe for any interpretation: iconic music, a timeless script, a clear story with emotional depth, relatable characters and well-defined goals, and of course, some pretty captivating dancing.
