LOVED this movie
28 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had this movie on a video tape and the beginning was missing but I used to watch it all the time. Me and my best friend would act out some of the girls parts and we'd sing along with all their songs and everything. I used to love those outfits Diane would wear where it's like a skirt but the front of it is open and she's got shorts on - I'd wear shorts and wrap a towel partway around me to mimic the look! My friend used to like being Nina - I'm not sure why...maybe because Nina was the only one who had a boyfriend in the movie. I've since had the tape taken away from me (not by choice) and I miss it! I think I even made a cassette tape of the songs too - I might still have that. But anyway, I loved this movie and I'd love to have another (full) copy of it. It's probably a corny 80s movie to most people who have seen it, but I think it's a feel good movie. It's interesting to watch the changing emotions of the people throughout and see it all come together at the end (I hope that's not considered a spoiler - I'm not giving details!). This is my first movie review so I'm sorry if it sucks - I just wanted to share how I feel about it and what it means to me.
