"Flashdance" from 1983 is a poor movie. To me it seems just like a bunch of music videos played after each other, and the already plain story obviously suffers from this. Jennifer Beals stars as Alex Owens, a working-class girl working as a welder during the day and as a dancer each night. Her dream is to obtain a place in a prestigious dance school. One night her boss at the steel mill, Nick, (Michael Nouri) sees her dancing in the club, and he immediately becomes attracted to her. You can probably guess the rest of the movie yourself, thats how predictable and "seen-before" it is.I can see why the feature is loved by someone though; I found Beals charming as Alex and Nouri quite alright as Nick and I loved the soundtrack, which is amazing and got a well earned Oscar. It doesn't hurt with beautiful and sexy leads, 80's spirit, music and dancing either. A typical teen-movie.
