Trivia

The film was originally slated to be released by Warner Bros. in 1986, but the studio turned it down after Julian Temple's previous film Absolute Beginners (1986) proved less than stellar at the box office. De Laurentiis Entertainment Group (DEG) eventually agreed to distribute it, but the film would eventually be acquired by Vestron Pictures after DEG filed for bankruptcy after filming was complete. Prior to Vestron picking up the film for distribution, other studios including New World Pictures, Nelson Entertainment, MGM, and 20th Century Fox expressed interest in acquiring the film.

Enormous fun!
26 May 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

One of the films that fits into the category of Just Fun.

While you could never call this a musical there are definitely lots of great musical numbers in it.

Geena Davis has a star turn as the vapid Valley Girl Valerie. I laughed at the fact she spent most of the movie wearing the tiniest bikini imaginable. But BOY can she pull it off.

Julie Brown as Candy the proprietor of the Curl Up and Dye beauty salon was a treasure. She always makes me laugh and I always want to see more of her.

Micheal McKean as Woody once again shows his amazing versatility. Just compare him in this movie to his role in "Airheads" and you will see just how wildly divergent he can be.

Frankly, I didn't recognize him.

This film is high camp and pulls it off well because it never takes itself seriously.

Not being a big Jim Carrey fan when Valerie tells Wiploc that she will miss him least of all I always want to cheer.

See this and have a good time.
