There's nothing like zero sleep in NYC most of your stay, then partying for 12 hours before getting straight on a plane, finally finding your bed and crashing...only to wake up to THE LEGEND OF BILLIE JEAN. The movie that made me want to cut off all my hair, reconsider my sexuality, and want to drive around like an outlaw. This movie is summer 80's style for me. I want to put on my thrashed boots and baggy high waisted shorts with four belts and march through my neighborhood looking for fun. There are crazy scenes where she has on those 85' style baggy pants like Bananarama street urchin. Cool bolero ties and denim torn vests. Skimpy and yet strong.
"The film was expected to be a big hit, especially with the MTV crowd, as evidenced by the immediate heavy rotation of its theme song, "Invincible" by Pat Benatar, which peaked at number four on America's Top Forty; however, its reviews were poor, and it only grossed approximately US$3.5 million.
The film's only home video release as of 2007 was on pan & scan VHS in 1985 and has yet to be released on DVD." (wikipedia)
When you're seventeen, people think they can do anything to you. Billie Jean is about to prove them wrong.
The last thing she ever expected was to be a hero.
