A must see for 80's lovers
24 August 2003 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie has been a favorite of mine since I saw it for the first time in 1989. If you love 80's movies you'll love this one. It's got somewhat of a star studded cast. Not many people have ever heard of this movie so it's not shocking that an up and coming Cuba Gooding Jr goes unnoticed in his small role. Others included are Miss Patti Labelle and Peter Dobson who would later appear in a few other movies and television roles.

I wouldn't classify this movie as a dance movie along the same lines as Girls Just Want to Have Fun etc. There is a bit of dancing but it's not the storyline.

It's a classic 80s movie. Young rebel without a cause meets sweet innocent young girl. Girl melts guys heart of ice guy makes girl cry but somehow it all works out in the end.

A Must See.
