"The Legend of Billie Jean" is partly intended as a satire of the American machine of celebrity, but it's mostly supposed to be taken straight, and much of the fun of the movie lies in trying to tell the two apart. Full Review

...A good turn by Helen Slater in the title role...

Has a straight faced camp about itself that makes it a blast from the past worth sitting through Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- This far-fetched movie munches on the mythology of heroism but is too manipulative and shallow to be taken seriously.

Rating: 2/5 -- Em seu esforço risível para criar um ícone de independência, rebeldia e juventude, o filme soa apenas incrivelmente absurdo, artificial e patético, mesmo que Helen Slater seja uma protagonista obviamente sedutora.

Rating: 5/10 -- The Legend of Billie Jean does remain interesting and entertaining throughout its run, even if it is a bit short on plot and a lot short on realism. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

When local rich kid Hubie Pyatt (Barry Tubb) steals and wrecks Binx Davy's beloved motor scooter, Binx's older sister, Billie Jean (Helen Slater), demands the $608 it costs to fix it. Binx shoots Mr. Pyatt (Richard Bradford) by accident and he and Billie Jean flee town accompanied by Billie Jean's girlfriends, Ophelia (Martha Gehman) and Putter (Yeardley Smith). They become fugitives and when they pick up a very willing hostage, Lloyd (Keith Gordon), they become criminals. Billie Jean becomes a legend in her own time, a symbol of freedom to teenagers everywhere. Includes all-new commentary! Newly remastered.

Product Description:

A teenage girl living in Corpus Christi, Texas suddenly finds herself at odds with the police and exploited by schemers. Almost overnight she becomes both an outlaw and a legend.

Plot Synopsis:

When a couple of redneck ruffians cause Billie Jean's little brother to wreck his scooter, the young woman embarks on a crusade to recover the $600 that he needs to fix the bike. But what starts out as an campaign to get the cash turns into a full-scale war with the local authorities. Soon Billie Jean becomes a symbol of righteousness and justice, as she changes from an ordinary teenage girl to an outcast crusader.
