* DolledUpInstallment: ''Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights'' started life as a stirring and gritty war drama about the Cuban Revolution, focusing on a 15-year-old American girl in Cuba at the time, and the difficulties of the revolution being led by the youth, as virtually all of the revolutionaries were under 30.



* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine: Both Swayze and Grey previously worked together in ''Film/RedDawn1984'', while Kenny Ortega previously choreographed ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'', which Grey also co-starred in. Also, Swayze and Cynthia Rhodes also appeared together in the music video for Music/{{Toto}}'s "Rosanna." In addition, Orbach and Bishop previously worked together in ''Theatre/PromisesPromises''.
* ItWillNeverCatchOn: When the film was screened for Aaron Russo, a producer at Vestron Pictures, his reaction to the film was "Burn the negative and collect the insurance."

* RealitySubtext: Swayze and Grey didn't get along back when they appeared together in ''Film/RedDawn1984''. The tension seen on-screen during Baby's TrainingMontage (set to "Hungry Eyes") in particular had to do with their past working relationship, nerves, long hours, Grey's moods (ranging from crying due to not dealing with criticism well to bouts of the giggles), and Swayze's frustration with Grey. According to Swayze, one of the things that first broke down the barrier was his learning that Jennifer -- daughter of famous Broadway dancer Joel Grey -- had never learned how to dance; he apparently couldn't stop laughing for several minutes when she told him.
