Valley Girl is a totally rad musical throwback to the eighties complete with a wonderful soundtrack and an astounding performance from Jessica Rothe.
May 21, 2020
With the chemistry and shameless nostalgia-grab of jazzercise, leg warmers, and 80s pop, there's enough to Valley Girl to entertain, although there's admittedly little there to impress.

The movie is just as slick as the lifestyle it supposedly mocks.
May 16, 2020
Overall it was a bubbly, effervescent fun film with a very likable leading presence from Jessica Rothe.

By the end, even a fan of the original may feel dread instead of glee at the rise of synth on the soundtrack, announcing yet another interminable musical number.
May 14, 2020
Disney Channel style musical numbers give the story a propulsive energy but the artificial, generic tone also threatens to make the story weightless.

If Valley Girl was a roller coaster, it would be the kiddy ride you choose because the line is short and you just want to pass the time before the next big thrill ride. And even then, it's still pretty disappointing.
May 12, 2020
It's puffery laden with dialogue written by people who think references are jokes.

This movie hurts my heart, and not in a good way... This just made me cringe a lot.

Valley Girl is a blast of enjoyable camp that is, unlike its teenage protagonists, entirely sure of its own identity. It knows it's broad, silly and cheesy, but it embraces that and turns its fantasy elements up to 11

Is Valley Girl true to its tagline, 'the awesomest love story ever told'? No. It's predictable with a familiar narrative and familiar conflicts, but it's feel-good and highlights not the stereotypes of the era, but its boisterous energy.
May 11, 2020
Valley Girl is an '80s artifact that either should have been given a more interesting makeover or been left untouched in the dustbin of the decade that spawned it.
May 11, 2020
Valley Girl isn't going to win any awards, but it's a lot more fun than expected, and if you're in the need of a pick-me-up, Valley Girl could totally provide it.
May 11, 2020
It's a film in love with its own memory of itself, a Glee-inspired reconstitution of a time capsule which creates a pale reflection of the original's simplistic magic.
May 11, 2020
If you're looking for a spirited diversion while holed up at home, Valley Girl is a great pick.
May 10, 2020
Despite a collection of nostalgic jams and a talented roster of rising stars, Valley Girl can't escape the shadow of its predecessor.
May 10, 2020
If you love musicals, teen romance, and the 80s, you're going to have a blast watching Valley Girl.
May 10, 2020
Don't overthink this one. Valley Girl is the collar-popping and leg warmer fluff I want right now.

Hey, at least Rock of Ages now has a drinking buddy!

80's fans will be hooked on a nostalgic feeling. Comforting like cotton candy but with the same nutritional value. [Full review in Spanish]
