Editorial Reviews

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The FUN of the 80's September 13, 2000
Format:DVD
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).

4.0 out of 5 stars Girls Just Want to Have Fun September 13, 2004
A Kid's Review
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars the Epitome of the 80s! December 28, 2001
By Krissy
Format:VHS Tape
I love this movie! I've watched this countless times since I was 5 years old, and I'm 22... can't imagine NOT watching it. The music, the dancing, the attitudes, and the clothing are everything the 80s are about. I now own it on DVD, and it's still as great as ever. As an avid fan of Sarah Jessica's "S&C"--she still HUGS THE SAME (and is as sweet then as now)!! really-- check it out sometime. If you LOVED Dirty Dancing-- YOU've got to watch this movie-- I think this came out before it and it is so much alike. Definitely recommend watching, buying, owning, and loving this movie... what girl (or even guy) DIDN't want to be on DanceTV???? <<grin>> :) And don't we all just wanna have fun!!!!!

If you're used to Sarah Jessica Parker in her more recent incarnation, wife of Matthew Broderick, mother to an adorable son and former star of Sex in the City as well as a designer of a new clothing line (Bitten), then you should see her earlier in her career.

All the charm and style is still there (okay, the style isn't quite the same as in Sex and the City) but her personality shines through, as does that of Helen Hunt. They work surprisingly well together and,happily, the movie is an enjoyable romp with lots of dancing (and some very cute guys).

The focus of the movie is the chance to be a dancer on a dance show. No, this isn't deep, intellectual stuff but it IS the kind of film teens relate to and THIS adult found it fun to watch, too. Plenty of appeal for everyone!

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.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Girls, buy this movie! November 28, 1999
By Heather
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this movie for the first time when I was probably only 10. It is now my forever favourite movie and I finally found it and bought it this year, after renting it over 20 times for sure.(I can even speak along with it). Get together with a group of your girlfriends and watch this movie! It will make you laugh at the craziness of the 80's and wish you could be friends with Janie(Sarah Jessica Parker)and Lynn(Helen Hunt). It's also really funny to see stars of today when they were just starting out. Still looking for the soundtrack though because it's got awesome music. Anyway, this movie is timeless!

4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless July 23, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Despite the transparent references to MTV and over-the-top 80's fashion (now horribly dated) the film remains a sweet portrayal of teenage dreams and romance. I first saw this as a little girl, and remain entranced by it since.
Even if the "strict father of catholic school girl" plot is not original, the idea of bucking order to get on a music-dance show certainly is. When everybody was drooling over dirty dancing, I was watching this movie. What it lacks in acting and plot (some of the lines are predictable) it makes up for in a cast of up and coming names (Shannen Doherty, Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt)
The dancing is fast paced (reminds me of Drill Team) and there is plenty of teen angst to go around. Even if it's not the best acting in the world, it remains timeless and therefore enjoyable by all.
