One of my favorites!!
9 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

I have a soft spot for cheesy 80's comedies, and this is DEFINITELY near the top of my list! With awesome music, 80's-clever dialogue, and the amazing Sarah Jessica Parker, it just can't be beat. Also starring a young and oh-too-cute Shannen Doherty, this movie is what I watch when I need a quick pick-me-up. It's fabulous!
