When teenagers of 1983 saw the "Valley Girl" poster featuring a bare-chested Nicolas Cage, wearing a vest, a tie, tight black jeans, pointy toed boots and sporting a spiked hair-do standing alongside the beautiful Deborah Foreman wearing a sleeveless top, mini skirt, legwarmers and headband, it immediately caught their attention. To top it off the poster came with the hip tagline "She's cool. He's hot. She's from the Valley. He's not." and boasted a list of popular 80's music artists. Now if you were a teenager in that era wouldn't it reel you in hook line and sinker? Well in the 1980's "Valley Girl" did just that. Made for a reportedly low $350,000 teens immediately set the cash registers at the box office ringing and "Valley Girl" became the surprise hit of 1983. After a blink and you'll miss him role in "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" (1982), Nicolas Cage was now given the opportunity to headline a film. Although not having the conventional leading man looks, Cage certainly displayed a unique screen presence that captivated audiences worldwide. Cage plays Randy, a funky guy from the city that has punk hair, and wears new wave clothing. Deborah Foreman is the more conservative Julie, the cute girl from the Valley. These two teenagers were from different worlds but when they got together their love was so strong nobody could tear them apart. In this film the girls from the Valley had their own way of speaking, something that would become known as "Valley Talk", a vernacular that one could say was a predecessor of the teen talk used in "Clueless" (1995). For anyone who grew up in the 1980's "Valley Girl" should bring back pleasant memories of high school, dating, fashion and music. The "Valley Girl" soundtrack has been one of the most sought after teen movie soundtracks ever. It has proved to be so popular with fans that a 2nd CD has now been released. "Valley Girl" has achieved cult status and could be considered new wave 80's cinema at its best.
