The best eighties film u should see at least once
31 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

this is one of the best films i even seen. this is a feel good film for all those who love having fun and giggles. it is one of my fave films and watch it at least 3 times a week since finally finding it on DVD after many years of not seeing it. it is packed with comedy and romance and had my sides splitting with some classic quotes. the cast is great and there is a definite chemistry between them all. if u r gonna see an eighties movie just once in ur life then make it Girls Just Want To Have Fun. Get ur girlie mates round for a gossip and stick this film on and munch on the popcorn while laughing at Helen Hunt as Lynn, Sarah Jessica Parker as Janey and drool over the really nice looking guy Lee Montgomery aka Jeff with his dorky friend Drew.
