An unrecognized film, destroyed by the critics, and yet it is a very good movie : a cult film.

Horribly dated... and just horrible

This wasn't the best of movies but um... young, hot, John Travolta in skin tight spandex, thrusting. 'Nuff said. I liked a lot of bad 80's movies for my own special reasons.

Pathetic excuse for filmmaking but it did expose Jann Wenner for the big old girl that he was years before he actually "came out", which is amusing

A Rolling Stone reporter tackles the "pick up bars of the 80's", health clubs. Only in the 1980's did we get this material. Has better than anticipated character development and Jamie Lee Curtis is in outstanding shape here.

I am guessing that cinematographer Gordon Willis had to shoot this and another turkey, "The Money Pit," to atone for his comparing himself to Rembrandt! As you can imagine, it's a superficial story about health clubs being single's bars. But, in the hands of serious director James Bridges, it's trying to be a movie about journalistic ethics. Of course, it doesn't work, and is considered to be one of the 80's greatest flops. The cheesy 80's music and costumes eternally date the movie and make it only a superficial document of the decade.

Not as horrible as its reputation, but not ridiculous enough to be "so bad it's good."

The best thing was Jamie Lee Curtis in a leotard, glistening in sweat. Still, not a completely bad movie

This box-office bomb is one of the worst concepts ever conceived in Hollywood. It has a plot line that runs pretty thin. Jamie Lee Curtis seems to have put a lot of energy into making this movie while John Travolta seems lost. The on-screen chemistry just isn't there. It has enjoyable "dippy" dialogue that really makes you stare at the screen in shock because you want to ask yourself: "what was the writer thinking?"

Hyvä elokuva kuntosaliohjaajaan rakastuvasti toimittajasta, joka mokaa asian. Mutta lopussa huomataan kuinka asiat ovat todellisuudessa

A movie known more for its leg-warmers than anything else. There is no story and is nothing more than a reason to show Curtis and Henner in spandex.

When a Rolling Stones journalist decides to write an article on health clubs in the 80's, he meets some resistance in a female aerobics instructor. A star packed film with a great soundtrack makes this 80's cult movie a must see...though the story leaves something to be desired. Watch at your own risk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A pointless story and not entertaining.

Based on a series of Rolling Stone articles by Aaron Latham, this romance was set in the world of L.A.'s hip fitness scene. Rolling Stone reporter Adam Lawrence (John Travolta) comes to L.A. to write a story about a prominent businessman who's been arrested for drug dealing (shades of the John DeLorean scandal). He's also decided to research a piece on the exercise fad and how health clubs have become the "singles bars of the '80s." His boss (real-life Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner as himself) OK's the project. At a club called The Sports Connection, an incognito Adam meets the regulars, including promiscuous Linda (Laraine Newman), airhead Sally (Marilu Henner) and aerobics instructor Jessie (Jamie Lee Curtis), a former Olympic swimmer. Adam and Jessie begin a romance, but it ends when she discovers that he's there to trash her and the club in print. Conflicted, Adam wrestles with publishing the story, but the final decision isn't his. A director of sincere, sober dramas, James Bridges was an odd choice to helm the romantic Perfect (1985), widely considered one of the decade's notorious cinematic misfires. Bridges had enjoyed much greater success with his previous collaboration with Travolta, Urban Cowboy (1980).

Not a good movie vehicle for either of these talented actors, a bit of an 80's cliche.
