25 From 80: My Favorite Films Of 1980 (25 movies items)

" Going to school in New York can be alot fun. Especially, if during lunch, everyone is allowed not only to break out into song & dance, but also, to then spill out into the busy streets of the Big Apple, without inciting a riot. It's no wonder that people back then wanted to live forever. Makes miss the innocence of the early 80's. Not to mention the headbands, leg-warmers & stylishly torn sweatsuits. Let's get physical, y'all. "

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Every once in a while what appears to be the entire student body pours out into the street to do song-and-dance numbers, some of which are cheerful enough, but all of which break faith with the film's realistic premise. - Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine The film is cut at such a frenzied pitch that it's often possible to believe (mistakenly) that something significant is going on. - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"Director Alan Parker wanted a scene that showed Doris overcoming her fear and becoming an actress. He heard of the audience participation at the local screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and went to check it out. He loved it so much that he not only decided to use it in the film, he had many of the "cast" from the local screenings appear in the film, as the people doing the time-warp on stage when Doris runs up and joins them. Original title for the movie was to be "Hot Lunch," but bec"
