Check in the list settings. There should be an option to choose modal windows vs regular window. – Ashish Patel Jun 20 '11 at 19:49

I'm assunming you are working with SharePoint 2010, since you expect dialogs. Go to the List (or Library) Settings / Advanced Settings / Dialogs (all the way at the bottom), and make sure that the radio button is set to "Yes".
