Product Overview

Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt star in the outrageous '80s comedy hit! Janey (Sarah Jessica Parker) is a shy good girl. Lynne (Helen Hunt) is a cool rock chick. But when the two friends scheme to get Janey on television's biggest after-school dance show, they find themselves on a wild adventure filled with cute boys, hot dancing, prudish nuns, mean rich kids, parents that just don't understand, and girls doing what they know best...just having FUN!

Shannen Doherty, Jonathan Silverman, and Lee Montgomery co-star in this fun-filled comedy that's totally packed with outrageous '80s fashions, music, dance moves, and more!

Review Strictly for the hardest of hardcore '80s nostalgia buffs, Girls is a giggly just-wanna-dance-and-get-a-boyfriend comedy that stars a young Parker and a young Helen Hunt as the two main gigglers. Why the movie has to run for two hours is a mystery for the ages...Janey (Parker) arrives at a nun-filled Catholic school and announces that what she really wants to do is dance on TV. This fact immediately endears her to the hyper Lynne (Hunt), the class rebel who can't wait to pull off her boring plaid skirt uniform at the end of the school day...Of all the things wrong with Girls, what really kills it is the total lack of real '80s music. Why did the producers decide to go with a generic synthesizer-heavy soundtrack while all those competing John Hughes films of the same era roped in the top hits of the day, songs that still stick in our minds today? Even the film's title song isn't Cyndi Lauper's original version. It's recreated by a K-Tel soundalike. Was the budget really that small? They certainly had plenty of cash for lycra leotards, hairspray, and tomorrow's starlets.
