I SO knew that this would happen someday. The studio behind Dirty Dancing (you may have heard of this movie) is all in a tizzy because a few retailers have been using the famous "Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner" line on retail merchandise such as t-shirts etc.
I wonder if Target is in trouble over this? I bought a t-shirt late this past spring from the women's section at Target that was pink and it had Patrick and Jennifer (Johnny & Baby) on the front and then the famous line on the back..... My husband makes fun of me that I have a tee with Patrick Swayze's face on it but who could resist? He is such a bad boy.
Anyway read here about the lawsuit: http://movies.yahoo.com/mv/news/va/20070822/118777201900.html
What do you think- do you think retailers and designers should be able to use any line they want from a movie? Doesn't it just bring more attention the great movie that Dirty Dancing is? Doesn't it make you want to go rent it and watch it over and over again? It brings out the 10 year old in me. I was in 5th grade when it came out. My parents wouldn't let me watch it..... but I found a way- oh yes I did.
