Janey (Sarah Jessica Parker) is a shy good girl. Lynne (Helen Hunt) is a cool rock chick. But when the two friends scheme to get Janey on television's biggest after-school dance show, they find themselves on a wild adventure filled with cute boys, hot dancing, prudish nuns, mean rich kids, parents that just don't understand, and girls doing what they know best ...just having FUN!

Shannen Doherty, Jonathan Silverman and Lee Montgomery co-star in this fun-filled comedy that's totally packed with outrageous '80s fashions, music, dance moves, and more!
