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 makes you want to dance, or be a dancer
I remember seeing this film in the cinemas when I was 10 years old. At the end of the film all the audience clapped and cheered, I had never seen that phenomenon before and have not experienced it since. The film may be slightly predictable, but it is a must see for any pre-teen or teenage girl. Before my after school dance lessons me and my friends would always watch this film to put us in a dancing mood. Just like Top Gun encouraged people to be pilots, Girls Just Want to have Fun makes you want to dance, or be a dancer. Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt are terrific in their roles, a sign of things to come perhaps? While lee Montgomery was ever so cute!. I have to say though my favorite scene(s) are the "I Can Fly" routine, the audition process and the dance off at the end. In summary this film may be lightweight but it sure is a lot of fun-even almost 15 years later.
