Friday Flick – Valley Girl

What:  Valley Girl valley-girl-movie-poster_7793

When:  1983

Who:  Nicolas Cage, Deborah Foreman, Michelle Meyrink, Elizabeth Daily, Cameron Dye, and Michael Bowen.

What’s the story:  Julie, a girl from the valley, meets Randy, a punk from the city or the place they label Hollywood.  They are from different worlds and find love. Somehow they need to stay together in spite of her trendy, shallow friends.

Where:  California… or as they say in the movie, The Valley.

Why it’s amazing:  This movie is a cute, wholesome chick flick with a cute love story. It is also fun to see Nicholas Cage at a young age and starting to carve out his own niche as a movie star. Valley Girl is also a pure definition of 80s. For any 80s fanatic, it is incredible as it showcases the best (and the worst) styles and trends of the decade.

What is bad about it:  The movie is super cheesy, not going to lie. However, for anyone who LOVES the 1980s movies and chick flicks, this film is pure gold. The music, the fashion, and the catch phrases scream of this colourful decade.

Wonderful scene in the movie:  The final end scene at the prom. I can’t say why because it will give away the ending, but I LOVE it.

Fun Fact:  This is the first movie in which Nicolas Coppola is billed as Nicolas Cage.
