A good movie

I remember it very well, when I was a kid, I used to watch the TV-show based on this movie from time to time. Anyway, even though it was a decent watch, it never became a favorite of mine and it took me more than a decade to finally watch this movie. Eventually, it is my wife who pointed out that I should definitely check it out and the fact that it was directed by Alan Parker made the whole thing... read more

Description: If they really got what it takes, it's goingito take everything they got. Seven classes a day and a hot lunch. That's what New York City High School for the Performing Arts guarantees. Stardom? That's something the school's teenage musicians, actors, dancers and dreamers strive for. Fame sings the body electric, celebrating the growing-up process of honing talent, confronting realities, finding love, living life. Director Alan Parker (Evita, The Commitments) brings an energetic style to the crisscrossing stories of students (including future Academy Award winner Irene Cara, Paul McCrane (ER), Barry Miller (Saturday Night ...

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 80โ€™s (1441 movies items)

" If they've really got what it takes, it's going to take everything they've got. Every year, students at the New York City High School for the Performing Arts, enrol hoping to one day, make it big as singers, dancers, actors, and musicians. Some will make it, others wonโ€™t. This movie follows eight students from the time when they audition to get into the school, through graduation. Among these are the brazen Coco Hernandez, shy Doris Finsecker, sensitive gay Montgomery MacNeil, and brash, a"

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 1 (121 movies items)

"Pros: The opening musical sequence. Itโ€™s one of the best possibly ever. The students, and their performances especially Irene Cara. The choreography, and musical performances, as well as the songs. The overall presentation, of New York City, in 1990. The premise of following the students, through their school year, and everything that happens on the way. The matter of factness, of some of the subject matter, in the film."

250 Of My Favorite Films From The 80's, y'all (250 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 and 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 and stylishly torn sweatsuits. Let's get physical, y'all. "
