Laurie has been in show business since she was a child. Her dream is to be a singer, songwriter and actress. Her father wants her to be a comedian like him and Laurie only tries because it pleases her father. But she is a lousy comedian. She auditions for everything and is engaged to Ken, but Ken does not understand her needs. She has a one night stand with Chris, only to later find that he is a director. She has many emotions that have not yet been addressed and she must face them before she can get on with her life. Written by

I learned something today, Pop. It was really painful, but I learned something. I learned that I have to depend on myself. I can't depend on anybody else and that's ok. You know why? Because I'm a really good person to depend on. Maybe I don't have someone that I thought I loved a lot really, but that's ok because I've got me. And I've got my work. And I've got my music. And I love that - more than anything else on this earth.

Didi Conn really is wonderful in this, and her relationship with father Joe Silver is the reason to watch the film. And of course, the title song, which won an Oscar, is great the first time, good the second time, by the 5th time.... Yes, it is cliched, and at times, outright dumb, but the emotions and romantic view toward life and coming-of-age are timeless. Overall, I give it 7/10, and enjoy it every time I see it.
