Variety - 04/13/1983
"...VALLEY GIRL is very good simply because director Martha Coolidge obviously cares about her two lead characters and is privileged to have a couple of fine performers..."

Product Description:

It's a "totally tubular" scene as a "grody-to-the-max" punk from the wrong side of the Hollywood Hills, Randy (Nicolas Cage), falls for Julie (Deborah Foreman), a mall-dwelling Valley Girl, in this time capsule of 1980s teen vernacular. Julie and Randy become passionately involved; yet, despite her feelings for Randy, Julie succumbs to the peer pressure of her mall-obsessed friends, and gets back together with her Valley dude boyfriend, Tommy (Michael Bowen), who whisks Julie off to the Senior prom. Randy doesn't give up so easily, however, and chases Julie to the prom, with the help of his faithful friend, Fred (Cameron Dye), in an attempt to wrest her back. The sound track features the music of Men at Work, the Clash, and Josie Cotton in this 1980s teen comedy--an era, and topic, that director Coolidge was fond of chronicling, like her contemporary, John Hughes.

Plot Synopsis:

This teen romantic comedy involves a mismatched couple: a Valley Girl, Julie (Deborah Foreman), and punk rocker from Hollywood, Randy (Nicolas Cage). The pair find love in their Romeo-and-Juliet-like romance, until peer pressure gets to Julie and she cuts their relationship off; Randy just does not fit in with her Valley crowd. Julie reluctantly gets back together with her Valley boyfriend, Tommy (Michael Bowen), and goes to the prom with him, but the love struck Randy refuses to give up on Julie in this funny, winning film.
