About

Beals is a welder by day and a dancer at night, and if you buy that concept you'll have no trouble with the rest of this vacuous MTV-style movie. She dreams of going to ballet school, but the boss of her day-job tries to throw a spanner in the works. What little plot there is just about manages to hold the numerous sweaty dance numbers together (reportedly mostly performed by stand-in Marine Jahan).

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Lilia Skala, Belinder Baver, Kyle T Heffner, Sunny Johnson, Jennifer Beals, Michael Nouri, Lee Ving
  • Director: Adrian Lyne
  • Writer: Thomas Hedley Jr, Joe Eszterhas
  • Producer: Don Simpson, Jerry Bruckheimer
  • Photographer: Donald Peterman

In a nutshell

But as far as date movies go, this is effective enough, especially the scene where Beals demonstrates how to change her top without taking off her sweater.
