For Sure, Totally
I have no problem admitting it; I love the movie Valley Girl. It’s one of my favorites because it’s totally tubular and bitchin’. Okay, so it’s no wonder it didn’t win any awards, but Nic Cage looks freakin’ hot in this movie. This was before he became creepy.
I am sitting here with color on my hair, watching it right now, as this morning I am still stuck in 80’s chick flick mode. Here’s what gets me about this movie:
1. The Soundtrack — You can’t go wrong with kick ass music like, “A Million Miles Away”, “Johnny Are You Queer”, “Eaten By the Monster of Love”, “She Talks in Stereo”, and the piece de resistance, “I Melt With You”.
2. Nic Cage has his chest hair shaved in a pattern. If he had as much hair on his head now, as he had on his chest then, he wouldn’t need abad toupee.
3. Classic movie lines:
Randy: [to Julie after she dumps him] Well fuck you, for sure, like totally!
Fred Bailey: Do you believe a girl should pet on the first date?
Girl: Who are you, Bozo the Clown?
Fred Bailey: [warily surveying party food] What you got running here, a bait shop?
Suzi Brent: Like, it’s sushi, don’t you know?
Julie Richman: Yeah, but Tommy can be such a dork, ya know? Like he’s got the bod, but his brains are bad news.
I could go on and on, because there’s just so many of them, but I need to wash this damn color out of my hair soon, so I need to finish up.
4. The Click — The last, but most important reason I love this movie? Is because of “the click”.
Some of you know exactly what I’m talking about, because you’ve experienced “the click”. Julie and Randy experience “the click” in this movie, and that’s why I keep coming back to it. I like to be reminded what “the click” feels like—“like I feel connected to you somehow. . .it’s like we’re linked”, and then he moves in for the kiss. Yes, I have been lucky enough to experience “the click”, and more than once. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I have a hard time walking away from it, just like Julie and Randy do. I will chase “the click” to the ends of the earth, I will drop everything for it and drive hours to feel it, it’s like a drug and I can’t get enough of it. I have never been able to walk away from “the click”, and I usually end up making an ass out of myself because of it. “The click” is like a high, and I can’t get enough.
When was the last time you felt it?
Nicolas Cage is indeed hot in this movie! Haven’t seen Valley Girl in at least 10 years, but I think it’s time for a re-watch!
I adore him in this and Moonstruck! Had to watch both last weekend. 🙂
Awesome music. Totally rad, fer sure! Love that movie.
Fun movie, GREAT soundtrack. “Jukebox (Don’t put another dime)” – what an underrated fun pop song.
Last time I felt “the click” – too f’in long.
I know, right!! That movie is bitchin, to the max, and I think I need to watch it again!! Thanks for reading and commenting!
In a strange case of serendipity, I just got home from work, saw your message, turned on the TV, and… guess what’s on TV? How f’in weird is that? Almost creepy.
I love me some serendipity!! And yes, it is almost creepy weird. The almost creepy weirdness of it makes me smile. 🙂 How fucking weird is that??
I think you’re a girl after my own heart. That’s what I think.
