"Desperately Seeking Susan", still an awesome movie today, a great cast, plot and director.
The plot is an interesting one that has mistaken identity in it. Rosanna Arquette's performance as Roberta Glass really shines in this film. Madonna, actually did really awesome as Susan, this is by far her best film she has ever done. Aidan Quinn, who is a very awesome actor, his role as Dez, I give him a lot of credit for his performance, outstanding. Robert Joy as Jimmy, so cool. This movie has a lot of class and still shows how great the 1980s is, the good old days. A lot of movies out today, suck!
Rosanna Arquette's character is a woman who is desperate, desperate to have a better life then the one she is having right now. Love the fact that she is a woman who is not too into money cause she is a woman who would like to have fun. It comes to show that money is not always everything. Her hot tub salesman husband, Gary (Mark Blum), not really paying attention to her needs and can't see she is unhappy and bored.
Susan, a woman who is a fun-loving woman, who gets into some trouble, steals some ancient Egyptian artifacts from a man in Alantic City, New Jersey, and a man who stole them, wants them back and things get crazy from there and later on.
I love this film with all my heart, awesome music, love Madonna's song "Into the Groove", there are a lot of other great songs in the film, too. The good old days of the 1980s still live in this film and beyond.
