campy, edgy 1980's rock 'n' roll fun
19 April 2003 | by (Vancouver, WA) – See all my reviews

This was a small gem of a bootleg VHS amongst friends in my teenage years (the mid-80's). Ultra-cool, campy story of a girl group playing ultra-cool rock 'n' roll. Funny as hell. Looked like someone's home movie with bad lighting, messy camera work, and often fuzzy sound, but who cared with such potent lines and a kick-ass soundtrack?

Supposedly the DVD is coming out next month... even if they haven't cleaned it up, it's better than most of the other so-called "musicals" of the 1980's.

Oh, and if I recall, there was a sequel that was pretty cool too.
