I really like Desperately Seeking Susan, mostly because I actually liked the story. It is not the greatest, but very enjoyable. I also loved 80's Madonna and her as Susan was a treat, she did a decent job. Most older fans of Madonna have seen this film, and if you are a fan of Madonna's you should have a look. Also the other cast do a good job, this movie is one to put into you'r 80's collection.

"Soon enough, Madonna’s grungy downtownness would be buffed to a mainstream sheen. But here it is, captured for all eternity. The rom-com’s mystery meeting point is Battery Park, yet its more lovable locations include the bygone East Village thrift store Love Saves the Day (where the fought-over jacket is purchased) and Danceteria, a perfect place to get into the groove.—Joshua Rothkopf"

"Camel withdrew a sponsorship of $5,000 because of the scene where Dez (Aidan Quinn) tells Roberta (Rosanna Arquette) that she "should stop smoking". The second-hand clothing store that Susan and Roberta go to is called "Love Saves the Day" and is in Greenwich Village in New York City. As of 2007, the store is still there, selling used clothing as well as both new and used toys. "
