Doing what modern girls do evidently, which consists mainly of making new wave noises according to last month's fashion and listening to the assorted techno-pop bands on the sound track.

It isn't worth seeing, but it might be worth putting in a time capsule, right beside ''Ferris Bueller's Day Off.'' Twenty years from now, no one will believe life was ever lived this way.

Here's a movie without a brain in its head about three young women with no brains in theirs.

Cheesy little mid-80s fare; lotsa bad music, bad hair, and bad acting.

Audience Reviews for Modern Girls

This was a fun little time-waster that I grabbed off cable based on the trio of young ladies playing the titular Girls, and it was a fun look at a night in the life of a trio of women in LA, with one poor schmuck trying desperately to impress one of them and largely getting pawned off on her two friends. Cute stuff, give it a rental.

A supermassive 80's explosion in film. Possibly one of the biggest ever filmed. Not too bad. Short, sweet, and cheesy as were a lot of films from the period.

I saw this movie on TV a while ago, it's a pretty good teen comedy and late night adventure, but it could be better. It has a pretty good soundtrack too.
