    Synopsis


    Girls Just Want to Have Fun
    On her first day at an all-girls Catholic High School in Chicago, shy and reserved Janey Glenn (Sarah Jessica Parker) meets the wild and wacky Lynne Sands (Helen Hunt). Even though her oppressive dad, Col. Glenn (Ed Lauter), won't let her go, Lynne talks her into sneaking out to try out for a spot on the beloved show Dance TV. Janey wows the judges with her gymnastic ability and makes first cuts, conveniently assigned to a cute dance partner: blue-collar bad boy Jeff Malene (Lee H. Montgomery). They compete against the bratty rich girl Natalie Sands (Holly Gagnier), who sabotages them because she wants Jeff and the contest for herself. Janey and Lynne get revenge by inviting punks and street kids to crash her debutante ball. Natalie then resorts to making her wealthy industrialist dad, J.P. Sands (Morgan Woodward), threaten Jeff; If he doesn't let Natalie win, his dad (Biff Yeager) could lose his job at the factory. It all leads up to the live television broadcast of the Dance TV contest, right when Janey's dad races to the studio to stop her. Also starring Shannen Doherty as Jeff's little sister, Maggie. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

      Good Cheesy-80's Fun!

      I can remember seeing this for the first time back in the 80s and laughing my butt off. Watching it again recently made me laugh the same way. This is definitely one of those cheesy 80s movies that will always be funny, no matter how many times you've seen it. Definitely a great start for Sarah Jessica Parker, Helen Hunt and Shannen Doherty. This is a must-have for any 80's movie buff.

      I expected the movie to be a little funnier based off the trailer, but it was still cute.
