Flashdance ★★½

"Take your passions and make it happen." Or, get someone else to help you every step of the way. And a man at that. Compared to this movie's Alex, Legally Blonde's Elle was Joan of Arc. What would Alex do without her Inspiring Old Lady friend to tell her she'll die without her dreams? A man to remind her of what she already told her. Oh, and I suppose the veteran burlesque dancer and the priest helped her too. This movie probably thought it was being real at the time. This movie's reality is not being aware that you're spin-dancing with a soda in your hand. Oh, and taking off your bra while facing a man and talking about mundane things. That's called subtlety.

Oh well, at least the dancing scenes were pretty stylish.
