Theater Thursday

Want to help me get this awesome job
It's Thursday and that means it's time for another edition of Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is Girls Just Want to Have Fun.

Girls Just Want to Have Fun stars Sarah Jessica Parker, as the new girl in school Janey Glenn. Growing up with her dad in the military Janey is use to moving around, now that her dad is retired they've finally settled down in Chicago. 

To Janey's delight Chicago is the home of her favorite dance television show, Dance TV. After Janey confesses her love of dancing to her new friend Lynne (Helen Hunt), she accompanies her to open auditions for the show. Once there they get paired up with a partner to try to make it through the rounds to become the newest dance regular for the show. Janey gets partnered up with a great dancer named Jeff (Lee Montgomery) and from there their chemistry sparks. 

There's a catch though... Janey's dad doesn't want her to dance or have fun or be on television, so when he learns of her misbehavior he enforces a strict set of rules causing Janey to decide which is more important: dancing or always following the rules. 

Girls Just Want to Have Fun is a classic 1980's movie!  Watch it!

This brings back so many memories. My sisters and I would watch this movie over and over again. Eventually my uncle got tired of watching it and the tape somehow disappeared LOL

I LOOOOOVE this movie! Brings back great memories of watching it over and over on the VCR growing up! The only thing that could be better is maybe, Valley Girl!
