Product Description

Janey (Sarah Jessica Parker) is a shy good girl. Lynne (Helen Hunt) is a cool rock chick. But when the two 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 don't understand, and girls doing what they know best--just having fun!

Amazon.com

Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt dance their way through Girls Just Want to Have Fun, a glorious example of 1980s kitsch. Janey (Parker), the new girl at a Catholic high school in Chicago, dreams of becoming a dancer on Dance TV. With the help of new wave hipster Lynne (Hunt), Janey enters a dance contest and gets paired with Jeff (Lee Montgomery), a rebel in spandex, and the two are soon smitten with each other. Unfortunately, they've made an enemy of a snooty rich girl, who vows to take them down. Everything about Girls Just Want to Have Fun is cheap and cheesy--it doesn't even have the Cyndi Lauper version of the title song--but that doesn't make it any less goofily entertaining, particularly when a debutante ball is wrecked by a bizarre combination of punk rockers and female bodybuilders. Featuring a very young Shannen Doherty as Jeff's little sister. --Bret Fetzer

Girls Just Want to Have Fun is an 80's classic, representing the time and culture perfectly. If you want to know what it is like try thinking of an 80's version of Center Stage and mixing it with Dirty Dancing. The movie follows Janey Glenn(Sarah Jessica Parker), who has just moved into town, as she tries out for the DanceTV contest to be a regular on the show. But as always in the 80's the parents get in the way and she has to sneak out in order to practice with her elected dance partner Jeff Malene(Lee Montgomery). As romance blossoms so does jealousy for a spoilt brat Natalie Sands(Holly Gagnier) as she tries her hardest to break the two up, to win the guy and the contest, by getting Janey into trouble with her strict folks! But who will win? Well Getting into trouble is easy, but getting out of it is all the fun! Look out for some younger versions of stars of today - Helen Hunt(Lynne Stone - Janey's new friend), Shannen Doherty(Maggie Malene - Jeff's younger "Punk" sister) & Jonathan Silverman(Drew - Jeff's annoying friend).

A Kid's Review on September 13, 2004
Format: DVD
If you like to dance, then it's almost guaranteed that you'll love this movie!

Girls Just Want to Have Fun tells the story of a girl whose dream is to dance on her favorite dance TV show. Then she finally gets the chance in a dance contest! But before she can dance on the show, she has to learn to get along with her partner, beat out the snobby girl and HER partner who are also in the competition, convince her dad that being on the show is good for her, and improve her dance skills.

I thought this movie had great dance scenes, and great actors! I thought Sarah Jessica Parker was wonderful! Although I'm not pleased with the movies she's in today, I loved her in this movie!

I would recommend this movie to any girl who loves to dance, and any girl at all.

P.S. Please don't make mean comments about my review. It's not very nice.

I really love this movie...the cast is great, the music is
phenominal. It certainly is a totally 80's experience not to
be missed. The Dance contest at the end is the greatest.....
The best part to me is that sexy Lee Montgomery....whoo hoo..what
a body...what a face:) The nice thing about the movie is no sex
and I don't recall any language..so it is family friendly...
Just a all around great movie, but don't take my word...see it
yourself.......

well I would rate this higher if the stars had allowed.

This is the story of Janey Glenn (parker) who tries out for a dance contest after watching dance tv, who are looking for a new couple to star on there show, Janey and her friend Lynne stone (Helen Hunt), both try out but lynne doesn't make it, cause Natalie (Holly Gayniar?) Pays out her partner to ruin her chances, but Janey does and is paired up with Jeff Melane (Lee Montgomery), at first the two don't connect. In the meantime Natalie learns that Janey doesn't have permission to be out of school and calls her father to say she's not in choir practice, so Lynne and Janey have to act fast by pretending Janey almost spun to death in Gymnastics try-outs. Janey and Lynne find out that Natalie is having a ball, so they distribute flyers to social deliquents, punks and outcasts who gatecrash the ball. Natalie Declares war; for the time being Romance developes between Janey and Jeff, there Dancing becomes co-ordinated and their screen chemistry is dynamite, feel good, she sneaks out to dance and be with Jeff as they prepare for the contest, all falls apart when Jeff runs into Jp Sands, Natalies father who says he could put Jeff's dads job on the line if he dances in the contest, Janey and Jeff have an argument, then She gets caught sneaking into her home, setting off the alarm, she is grounded. Jeff talks with his dad who encourages him to continue in the contest anyway saying he'll worry about Jp Sands, the moral is that Janey and Jeff dance in the contest, they win, becoming the new dance tv regulars, Natalie sulks, Lynne becomes the New Miss Dance Tv. Happy ending.

This movie features solid beginning movie roles for Sarah Jessica Parker & Helen Hunt and just fun all around. Hunt is annoying yet loveable with her ability to get the duo out of sticky situations. And Parker can be downright annoying as well with her naivete. But somehow it's OK in this flick. Lee Montgomery comes into the picture as the token "hot guy". He closely resembels actor Joey Lawrence in my opinion, but I digress. It is up to Parker & Montgomery to win a dance contest.
Shannen Doherty delivers a spunky lil' performance as the sister of Montgomery. I don't understand how a 17 year old would let his little sister hang around him all of the time, evidently it does happen in Girls Just Want to Have Fun Land. Jonathan Silverman is a fun character as Montgomery's scheming friend who can't get a date.
This movie is typical 80s: they go to the mall, there are boys (like, ohmigod, totally!), and an 80s soundtrack in the background (i.e. "Dancing in Heaven" & "Technique"). Not to miss are the 80s fashions, including Helen Hunt's dinosaur barettes. Any pre-teen or teen girl will really enjoy this movie and people older than that may enjoy it for nostalgic 80s reasons.
