The best thing to be said about the Delinquents is that after 101 minutes - it stops!
25 November 2001 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Very surprising that in several years, this film has attracted only THREE comments! maybe they're the only people to have sat through it? Come to think of it, the day I took my daughter to see it back in '89, I don't think there WAS anyone else in the theater!

One thing I should point out, Kylie was NOT a superstar when she made this, merely an Aussie export, ex soapie star, squeaking her way to success in Britain - she hadn't MADE it as such! I think she was still in love with Jason Donovan then!

THE DELINQUENTS isn't all bad...just a bit iffy and merely an excuse to showcase Miss Minogue from every camera angle, if not every which way! She plays a headstrong rebellious teenager who falls pregnant to American Charlie Schlatter and is sent to the big city for an abortion. Lots of angst and RISKY BUSINESS type stumbling blocks but hell, you just know they're gonna get back together, and as they dance themselves into the sunset ahead of the final credits you can go home feeling much better!

Funny thing is, compared to her performance in later flicks such as STREETFIGHTER, she should have gotten an Oscar for this!
