Movie Reviews

The FUN of the 80's
Mark Ashmore | Brisbane, QLD Australia | 09/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Girls Just Want to Have Fun is an 80's classic, representing the time and culture perfectly. If you want to know what it is like try thinking of an 80's version of Center Stage and mixing it with Dirty Dancing. The movie follows Janey Glenn(Sarah Jessica Parker), who has just moved into town, as she tries out for the DanceTV contest to be a regular on the show. But as always in the 80's the parents get in the way and she has to sneak out in order to practice with her elected dance partner Jeff Malene(Lee Montgomery). As romance blossoms so does jealousy for a spoilt brat Natalie Sands(Holly Gagnier) as she tries her hardest to break the two up, to win the guy and the contest, by getting Janey into trouble with her strict folks! But who will win? Well Getting into trouble is easy, but getting out of it is all the fun! Look out for some younger versions of stars of today - Helen Hunt(Lynne Stone - Janey's new friend), Shannen Doherty(Maggie Malene - Jeff's younger "Punk" sister) & Jonathan Silverman(Drew - Jeff's annoying friend)."
Girls Just Want to Have Fun

"If you like to dance, then it's almost guaranteed that you'll love this movie!

Girls Just Want to Have Fun tells the story of a girl whose dream is to dance on her favorite dance TV show. Then she finally gets the chance in a dance contest! But before she can dance on the show, she has to learn to get along with her partner, beat out the snobby girl and HER partner who are also in the competition, convince her dad that being on the show is good for her, and improve her dance skills.

I thought this movie had great dance scenes, and great actors! I thought Sarah Jessica Parker was wonderful! Although I'm not pleased with the movies she's in today, I loved her in this movie!

I would recommend this movie to any girl who loves to dance, and any girl at all.

P.S. Please don't make mean comments about my review. It's not very nice."
The Epitome of the 80s!

"I love this movie! I've watched this countless times since I was 5 years old, and I'm 22... can't imagine NOT watching it. The music, the dancing, the attitudes, and the clothing are everything the 80s are about. I now own it on DVD, and it's still as great as ever. As an avid fan of Sarah Jessica's "S&C"--she still HUGS THE SAME (and is as sweet then as now)!! really-- check it out sometime. If you LOVED Dirty Dancing-- YOU've got to watch this movie-- I think this came out before it and it is so much alike. Definitely recommend watching, buying, owning, and loving this movie... what girl (or even guy) DIDN't want to be on DanceTV???? :) And don't we all just wanna have fun!!!!!"
