      Steve D The almost nonstop music is distracting but the script is fun and so is the cast. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/05/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of my favorite movies from the 80's! It's cute, it's funny, and has lots of great music. Recommended! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun little movie about a night out on the town in LA with a trio of vapid airheads, who recruit a nerdy boy to chauffer them around. By the end of the wild night the group are inseparable. Great cast, with good chemistry. It's a good time. It also serves as a time capsule of the 80s. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/15/18 Full Review Audience Member 1980's comedy with not much plot and not much intelligence. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a fun little time-waster that I grabbed off cable based on the trio of young ladies playing the titular Girls, and it was a fun look at a night in the life of a trio of women in LA, with one poor schmuck trying desperately to impress one of them and largely getting pawned off on her two friends. Cute stuff, give it a rental. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a totally 80's film about one crazy night in the club scene on the streets of L.A. It's got its fun moments, but its also very predictable and doesn't hold up well. Recommended for 80's fans only, anyone else should pass on this.

      Pat Graham Chicago Reader Doing what modern girls do evidently, which consists mainly of making new wave noises according to last month's fashion and listening to the assorted techno-pop bands on the sound track. Jan 10, 2004 Full Review Janet Maslin New York Times It isn't worth seeing, but it might be worth putting in a time capsule, right beside ''Ferris Bueller's Day Off.'' Twenty years from now, no one will believe life was ever lived this way. May 20, 2003 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Here's a movie without a brain in its head about three young women with no brains in theirs. Rated: 1/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Oct 1, 2005 Full Review Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.com Cheesy little mid-80s fare; lotsa bad music, bad hair, and bad acting. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 26, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews
