so very cheesy

Janey Glenn (Sarah Jessica Parker) is new at her Catholic girls school. She's happy to be in Chicago near her favorite show Dance TV. She's a good girl struggling under her controlling Army father. She is befriended by worldly Lynne Stone (Helen Hunt) who shares her love of Dance TV. The girls, ruthless little rich girl Natalie Sands, Jeff Malene with his comedic friend Drew (Jonathan Silverman) and little sister Maggie Malene (Shannen Doherty), and many others audition for the show.

This is so very cheesy. One can have a great grilled cheese sandwich party with this movie. It has no reality. It tries to be a light fun affair. Cyndi Lauper does have a cameo. It's a silly teen movie with a few familiar faces when they were younger. It has some fun value in the right mindset.

Core 80's

(Flash Review)

Impetus for viewing: Netflix was going to remove it from streaming soon. So I checked this one off my pure 80's list to reduce ridicule for having not yet seen it. Hahaha Awash in happy, bold and garish 80's styles, this is a movie about a dance competition. Parker's character is a dynamite dancer and against her father's wishes and knowledge enters a partner dance competition with a dude who wears a leather jackets and rides a motorcycle. Cue teenage rebellion plot line as well as fake forced emotional scenes. I was surprised the music wasn't better, no big hits and with this title for the movie, didn't even use Cindy Lauper's (sp) original song version. She wouldn't allow it. Ha. The cinematography is boring and isn't used to accentuate any scenes. It was strange to see Helen Hunt as a giddy teenager since she now plays very reserved characters.

A Silly Little Film

Janey is new in town, and soon meets Lynne, who shares her passion for dancing in general, and "Dance TV" in particular. When a competition is announced to find a new Dance TV regular couple, Janey and Lynne are determined to audition. The only problem is that Janey's father doesn't approve of that kind of thing.

This is just 1980s cheese at its finest. There is very little plot, nothing unexpected and it could probably have been written over a weekend. It probably was. The only thing about it that really makes it worth watching is that the stars have gone on to bigger and better careers. We even have a young Shannon Doherty.

If nothing else, we learn that Sarah Jessica Parker has always been a hideous creature and how she ever got hired on a movie -- or many -- or a TV show is mystery. And it calls into question Matthew Broderick's good sense.
