Valley Girl Review


Good
Dated yet infectious, Valley Girl is the kind of absurd romantic/teen/sex comedy that they just don't make any more. Nicolas Cage takes his first starring role as "the punk" from Hollywood, to whom titular "gag me with a spoon" valley girl Deborah Foreman finds herself drawn. There's a local jock also in the picture, and of course Foreman's got a totally tubular group of friends (including future voice of Babe Elizabeth Daily and Real Genius co-star Michelle Meyrink). The story is typical kids' stuff, but the '80s setting and ear-thrashing lingo is unforgettable.
