Trivia

The title was changed to "Girls Of Summer" for the film's television debut, ostensibly to fool viewers who had already seen the film or perhaps because it was a dud at the box office. The Turner Classic Movies website states that the film was "retitled 'Girls of Summer' for early 1991 network broadcast". See more »

Great feel good teen chick flick
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first watched it in 89 when I was a preteen. Just saw it again on DVD and still think it's pretty awesome. DVD picture quality isn't the greatest but all that teen angst is awesome and Justine Bateman still rocks. Was a bit surprised to see Julia Roberts who I had no recollection of but Liam Neeson is probably the reason I ended up living in Europe. That accent!!

I'd definitely recommend it if you just want to kick back, relax. Watch some big 80s hair and funny girl band stuff. The other cast members are pretty cool too although not as memorable. Couldn't get over Julia Roberts in this movie dressed similarly to the way she was dressed in Pretty Woman.

I loved it and definitely recommend it for feel good flash backs.
