Like, oh my god, don't miss this classic '80s teen rom-com on its 30th anniversary. The screening is part of Cinefamily's "Heavy Midnites" late-night screening series of pizza party classics and B-list flicks that "deliver A-list thrills." Experience the Valley Girl phenomenon's glory days as an innocent pastel-pink SFV girl falls in love with a Hollywood punk (Nicolas Cage) in this film full of stuck-up teens in all their popped-collar and feathered-hair glory. For all the dated kitsch, there are real highlights as well: an exploration of class tensions, genuine, confusing young love and a great New Wave soundtrack featuring Psychedelic Furs and Modern English. Plus Cage voices one of his best lines: "F#@k off, for sure, like totally."
