Some guy grabbed you?

This fun-filled ride from the 80's is one of my classics that represent that decade. (the others are: Ferris Bueller, Breakfast Club and Beat Steet/Breakin') What makes this movie a classic is not the plot, nor the acting, nor the cinematography. What makes this movie a classic is simply M-A-D-O-N-N-A. Madonna is a sexual revolutionary who changed the feminine, pop and musical culture across the USA, if not the world. The female Elvis. She brought flavors of underground and "taboos" to mainstream America. She absolutely crushed the sexual restraints that were in place before her and did it with style. Madonna was slutty, sleazy, hot, sensual, bold, cutting-edge, or whatever word you use to describe her. In this movie she plays.....Madonna!
Her wardrobe was....Madonna! Remember in the 80s, that lacy shirt with her bra showing and her belly button exposed was "lewd". Now, its no big deal. Spears, Aguilera, Lopez, etc all owe their bold sensuality to their pioneer, Madonna. Of course, I must give credit to the revolutonaries before Madonna: Mae West and Marilyn Monroe.
This movie cleverly portrays Madonna's character (Susan...(Madonna)) as a vagabond and a hustler that is lovable and larger than life...like a cat with nine lives. She simply didn't give a damn and lived carefree. a heartbreaker and money-taker. The story, believe me, is irrelevant. It's just an excuse to film Madonna and sell tickets (DVDs). If you were at least a teenager in the 80's you loved the movie then...and you gotta love it today.
YES...we really did dress that way!!!
