Not much happens, doesn’t really go anywhere. A bit disjointed and unpolished like a lot of 80’s movies. The ending kind sucked.

Beals is hot. Got a boner watching her eat lobster. She’s is like Ralph Macchio in so many ways.

But she’s unrealistically normal. She swears a lot and throws angry fits, but where are the deeper psychoses that normally go along with hot girls? As someone who otherwise seems healthy, why in the world would she decide that it’s OK to date her boss? Were standards in the early 80’s really that lax? And why would she wanna be with a creepy stalker?

A few good dance numbers and video sequences, disappointed that most of them weren’t performed by Beals.
