Girls Just Want to Have Fun

1h 27m Comedy, Music, Romance 1985

Janey and Lynne are determined to auction for "Dance TV", but Janey's strict parents won't approve. She'll just have to do it in secret.

Janey (Sarah Jessica Parker, Sex and the City) is new to Chicago, and soon meets Lynne (Helen Hunt, As Good As It Gets), who shares her passion for dancing and the show “Dance TV”. Janey and Lynne are determined to audition for the show, but Janey’s strict and conservative father won’t let her go. Lynne talks her into sneaking out and Janey impresses the judges with her gymnastic ability. She is paired up with blue-collar bad boy, Jeff, and together they compete against the obnoxious rich girl, Natalie, who has her heart set on Jeff and wants to win the contest herself.

A playful game of deception, jealousy and blackmail leads them to the final dance-off in this quintessential 80’s ‘chick flick’ brimming with fun music, dancing galore and a supporting cast which includes Shannen Doherty (Beverly Hills 90210) and Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie’s).
