While it's easy to get caught up in the nostalgia of Valley Girl, this datedness also puts some limits on how you can watch the film.

For a change, there aren't any cartoon problem adults on hand as there often are in these pictures.

This movie is a little treasure, a funny, sexy, appealing story of a Valley Girl's heartbreaking decision: Should she stick with her boring jock boyfriend, or take a chance on a punk from Hollywood?

With characters as dimensionless as these, the film needs either greater irony or greater sympathy than it demonstrates.

It's a measure of how, like, totally influential this little film was 20 years ago that there seems to be nothing special about it today.

Director Martha Coolidge turned a short-lived fad into a genuine sleeper, an exploitation film that thoroughly transcends its origins to become a highly appealing romantic comedy.
