Besides having an awesome soundtrack, the movie is probably the only movie that has made me a cult follower for it.
Billy Jean is a woman who empowers herself through her innocence. The fact that she has such an unique attitude towards such a critical moment in her life is amazing.
I first saw this amazing movie about four years ago when it happened to be on TV. I sat and watched it, for lack of something better to do. I am glad I did. This movie has had such a dramatic effect on my personal life. No matter how goofy this sounds, I have come to realize that you have to make the best of a bad situation.
Definatly two thumbs way way up as well as however many stars I can give it. And whoever can figure out how I can meet Helen Slater gets a cookie- she is one of my all time heroes!
