I was excited and looking forward to watching Valley Girl on DVD as this is one of my favorite movies of all time. I was 14 when it was first released in 1983 and feel this movie is a part of the teenager in me. Unfortunately, I was disppointed with the DVD for the following reasons:
-Right before Julie and her friend, Stacy, leave to the party at Suzy's house, the song"Angst in My Pants" by Sparks is being played and the camera zooms slowly into the dancing crowd while the song is being played. In the DVD , they cut straight to the scene at the party where Julie is talking to Tommy so this part is cut off.......why?????
- The music in the party scene sounds low and distant in the background. I've seen this movie several times on tv,cable and video before and the music seemed more audible and enhanced.
-The song, "Who Can It Be Now" by Men at Work is missing. It was supposed to be played in the scene where Nicolas Cage is hiding in the shower tub waiting for Julie(Deborah Foreman) to go to the restroom so he can ask her out.
-Though I do like the interviews with the actors and director, Nicolas Cage, E.G. Daily, Martha Coolidge, etc.Where is Deborah Foreman?? She is the title character! I would have loved to see her interviewed.
These quips may sound miniscule to some but I wanted to feel that same nostalgia that I always have felt when watching Valley Girl and just didn't this time around.
