Valley Girl (1983)

Directed by Martha Coolidge (Real Genius)

Julie's cool, Randy's hot.  She's from the Valley, he's like... so not!

"Among the almost flawless cast, Valley Girl's big revelation is Nicolas Cage.  Randy is the first of many characters Cage would play from odd angles, and the movie set him on a fast path to stardom." - Mike "McBeardo" McPadden, Teen Movie Hell


"It's awesome!" - Roger Ebert


"It's a fun movie that capitalized on the 'Valspeak' fad, and it was good to see a 'punk' character who wasn't a psycho gang member for a change." - Michael J. Weldon, The Psychotronic Encyclopedia

Julie is, like, so over her pretty boyfriend, she dumps him on the escalator at the Galleria.  And when she meets punk rocker Randy, her eyes practically bug out because she thinks he's sexy even though he makes her friends gag!  But even if Randy's ready to stop the world and melt with her, can Julie risk losing her friends and her super-popularity at school just to be with him?
