Kristi Somers was originally supposed to work only one day on this film. However, the director liked Somers as Rikki so much that a couple of additional scenes of Somers as Rikki were added into the movie. See more »

Girls Just Want to Have Fun is the ultimate movie of the 80s. I was 8 years old when this came out and my friends and I would hold our own Dance TV, of course everyone wanted to be Janey but I wanted to be Helen Hunt's character Lynne.
Even though Sarah Jessica Parker had the title role and the hunky Lee Montgomery as her dance partner and boyfriend, this film belonged to Helen Hunt. She was absolutely wonderful as the best friend who helped Janey with her dream of being on Dance TV.
Jonathan Silverman was funny as Drew, Jeff's best friend that in fact the best friends were the one who made this movie more enjoyable.
Shannen Doherty was also impressive as Jeff's little sister Maggie, but a little too old to be playing a 12 year old.
The music is brilliant, though a little dated and every time I see this movie it brings back all the nostaglia of growing up in the 80s.
A definite must see no matter how many times you've watched it.
