Alex Owens is a female dynamo: steel worker by day, exotic dancer by night. Her dream is to get into a real dance company, though, and with encouragement from her boss/boyfriend, she may get her chance. The city of Pittsburgh co-stars. What a feeling!Written by

When Alex is filling out the application for the dance school, her parents' names are listed on it as "Alfred Owens" and "Jeanne Therese Anderson". The real-life parents of Jennifer Beals, who is playing Alex, are named Alfred Beals, and Jeanne Therese Anderson Beals. See more »

Sure, Flashdance will never make the AFI's Top 100, but it has an infectious charm. Jennifer Beals is really only so-so in the leading role, and her leading man Michael Nouri is no better off, but it doesn't matter. What does matter here is the great music! Really, the whole film is played like a 90-minute ad for MTV! Laugh at the dopey plot and listen to the great tunes. Great film to earmark the 80s.
