Rating: 4/5 -- It's the electrifying body-doubled dance numbers that really stick. Full Review

Depressing to think that this was a huge hit on the back of the Irene Cara hit single, since there's absolutely nothing to it. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The story doesn't help Miss Beals either, because she's at her least convincing when having to register any emotion other than rapture.

Punchy, cleverly stylized, but utterly empty. Full Review

Product Description:

In Adrian Lyne's FLASHDANCE, a young woman, Alex (Jennifer Beals), strives to achieve success as a classical dancer, but economic forces require her to work as a welder by day and an exotic dancer by night. Standing in her way is an abundance of profound social obstacles, not the least of which is her boss at the welding factory, Nick (Michael Nouri), who is also her boyfriend. Alex strives to be accepted into a prestigious ballet academy, and she is furious when she realizes that her boyfriend might be pulling strings for her behind the scenes. Along the road to self-discovery and independence, Alex also struggles to accept love, come to terms with her own stubbornness, and find the inner strength to turn her lofty dreams into reality.

Edited for maximum rhythmic impact, FLASHDANCE is full of glistening bodies and metallic surfaces, powered by Giorgio Moroder's throbbing music and one hit song after another: Michael Sembello's "Maniac," Karen Karmen's "Manhunt," and, notably, Irene Cara's Oscar-winning theme song, "Flashdance...What a Feeling." FLASHDANCE marks the first coproduction between Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson, who geared the film toward the MTV generation.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: April 15, 1983.
  • FLASHDANCE was never a "number one" movie, but it ran for months, its string of hit songs keeping it in the public eye. Eventually, it earned $95 million in theaters in the U.S.
  • Adrian Lyne had doubts about FLASHDANCE; he was asked eight times before he agreed to direct the movie.
  • Before FLASHDANCE was filmed, Jerry Bruckheimer and screenwriter Joe Eszterhaus searched for bars with "flashdancers." The pair returned with the news that there were none. Undaunted, the filmmakers made one up for their story.
    French dancer Marine Jahan was the uncredited double who performed most of Jennifer Beals's dances in FLASHDANCE.
