Funny!
9 October 2001 | by synergy273See all my reviews

This is one of my all-time favorite 80's movies! There are a lot of funny one liners, great dancing and a really good soundtrack! I like this version of the Girls Just wanna have fun song than Cyndi Lauper's original. My favorite scene is when Janey, Lynne, and Maggie get even with Natalie:)
