Brooke Shields said of working on this movie: "I was so thrilled that it was happening. I think in hindsight, the problem was that it was never backed by a studio. It was Golan (Menahem Golan) and Globus (Yoram Globus), and it was all sort of fishy to begin with. We also were the first of that kind of comic book movie, and unfortunately it took six years to get released, by which point Batman (1989) and Dick Tracy (1990), and every other superhero and cartoon-inspired movie had already come. We were originally going to be part of that first batch. I always thought it was unfortunate, because the idea and the cast were both so good. Timothy Dalton! But the direction fell short, and it got legally tied up, so to me it was such a shame. I think that movie could've been . . . It was really fun, and I thought it was unique, and I loved playing that character. She's still one of my favorites." See more »
Cub Reporter Pesky Miller:
You're just sore because Brenda got the O'Shea story while you were sitting on your claws!
Libby 'Lips' Lipscomb:
Haha! Little man, I don't care about the O'Shea story. "Small potatoes." I'm working on something so big it'll really clean your clock, Starr! Put you right out of the newspaper game! All you poor saps. So, tata!

Let me start off first by saying that this movie is not very good but I would put it against other movies of the same era and say that it is better than average.
It certainly doesn't deserve the bad rap that it has gotten over the years and isn't a terrible movie either, however. I'm not sure why so many people hate this film. The direction, writing and acting are all just fine.
Brooke Shields looks great and does a fair enough job of playing the main character.
The story is also very unique and fun with her literally coming out of the comic strip as a real life character. Maybe the strangeness of that turns some people off.
But it's a fun movie and worth seeing... if you can find it that is, it's not super well known or loved!
