Here it is, a message from Jim.
[Reading from newspaper]
"Desperately seeking Susan. Meet me, four o'clock, Battery Park. Keep the faith. Love, Jim."
Jim? Susan? Do you know these people?
They send messages through the personal ads, that's how they hook up. Last year she was in Mexico City, then Los Angeles, now New York. Desperate. I love that word.
Everybody I know is desperate, except for you.
Well, sort of.

yay! madonna actually does have one good movie! (and yes, we are talking about this one.) she plays susan, who is the definition of a free-spirit. and rosanna arquette is just as delightful as she always is, and frankly i would expect nothing less.
the soundtrack is an 80s gem. madonna's song "into the grove" is proudly featured and really sets the mood in the club scene. and the 80s fashion provides such an effective blast from the past that one really finds himself back in 1985.
this was overall a really good movie. it was fun and the characters were likable. i recommend that you rent it for an evening in with the friends.
