Editorial Reviews

THE LEGEND OF BILLIE JEAN is set in rural Texas, and is about teenagers Billie Jean (Helen Slater) and her brother Binx (Christian Slater) who are on an outing at the local swimming hole, when Binx's prize motor scooter is stolen by a gang of thugs. When she tries to get the scooter repaired, she is nearly raped and Binx accidentally shoots the owner of the store. The frightened teenagers then take it on the lam.

Ill try to keep this brief, if your reading this then it is safe to say your probably not the casual movie watcher. I read through the reviews and failed to see any that answered all my questions, so here we go.

1. Physical appearance - I was expecting a burnt store bought DVD-R with the lack of description on this thing. No, it is a nice cover, and a factory labeled disc. Pretty much on par with the obscure movies that end up in thew Walmart 5 dollar spot. Think of "Howard the Duck", no insert, but a nice case, cover, and the DVD is properly labeled, and unless you know the difference between a DVD and a DVD-R, you probably wouldn't even know it's a DVD-R.

2. Actual Disc - Their is no real menu. Just a generic representation of one. It gives you the option of watching with commentary, or without.

3. Actual film - Ok, so it isn't crystal clear HD amazing quality. But it is BY FAR the best i have ever seen. this is even better than the version that played on HDTV a while back. This movie had sadly ONE VHS release, and it hasn't aged well, if you own a copy you know what i am referring to. All VHS is not created equal, and BJ was an early VHS tape. I am flat blown away by how good it looks. The masters to this movie were lost years ago, which is why it never got an official release, the only reason. I would hypothesize that this was a way for Sony to make money, while answering probably a few thousand requests. The Movie quality compared to a properly Digitally remastered film is about 8 out of 10 (Proper remaster being 10).

4. Good Buy? Are you kidding me?! It's done, if you have wanted a decent copy of this and have been waiting for years your done. Buy it, done deal. I've had bootlegs, VHS, all the above. I am an avid movie fan. I was absolutely relieved to find this. I wanted to get my wife a good copy of this and had just about given up. By one while they have them, because i don't think this one will stay in print too long.

I saw The Legend of Billie Jean for the first time when I was 16 and, 200 viewings later, it is hands down my favorite movie of all time. Sure the plot may seem a bit formula -- fugitive teens on the quest for justice -- but it's the earnestness and outright sincerity of the characters, particularly Helen Slater as Billie Jean, that gets you. Here are four podunk Texas trailer kids with hearts of gold that get f***ed with by a bunch of podunk rich kids and end up having to fight for dignity and respect. It doesn't get any better than this. Watch it, love it. The Pat Benatar soundtrack rocks.

Sony Screen Classics delivers the goods with this underrated '80s favorite of mine. "The Legend of Billie Jean" finally makes its way to DVD and although its a Made-to-Order DVR the print looks flawless (NOTE: See the screen grabs I posted in the Images section of this product) and this is the first MOD disc I own that contains bonus features (however, there are NO Subtitles). There's a commentary by Helen Slater and Yeardley Smith, and while it's not exactly captivating stuff, it is fun to hear them waxing nostalgic about the experience of filming this.

Other '80s films such as "Pretty in Pink", "The Breakfast Club" or "Ferris Bueller" have been overexposed and rerun to death on cable, and TLOBJ has been hiding away for years and never really achieved the cult status it deserved, so if you've forgotten this film, I recommend it as a fun time capsule. The script is well-paced, the characters are well-defined and the performances are excellent all-around.

A great story about justice and retribution in small-town Texas, though some of the plot points are a little far-fetched. Plus it's got a great theme song from Pat Benatar that also deserves to be better-remembered than it is.

A great small film. The premise is a little corny but over all, the movie is a classic. It a starts when a brother ( Christian SLater) and Sister Bille Jean(Helen Slater) are chilling at a lake when the town bully who has a crush on the Bille messes up the brothers vespa. They want him to pay for the damages and he and the bully's father refuses, So THE LEGEND OF BILLE JEAN begins standing up to the police, the community, their parents, with the help from their friends leave town because of another incident which they are to blame injuring the Bully's father find salvation on the Media and turn into a Joan Of Ark stance.

Haven't since this in a while,,waiting on its offical DVD release.

A creepy guy vandalizes her kid brother's dirt bike, so Billie Jean (Helen Slater, who was never better) tries to get repair money from creepy guy's dad, who tries to tries to assault her and is accidentally shot. Billie Jean, her brother, and friends go on the lam. While they're trying to turn themselves in to an understanding cop (Peter Coyote, very good), they turn into outlaw folk heroes to all the kids in South Texas.
Not cliched, even with the "Joan of Arc" subtext. Holds up pretty well even after close to 20 years. Watch especially as Putter (Yeardley Smith, better know as the voice of Lisa Simpson) steals every scene she's in.
