Flashdance ... flash in a pan
I bought a DVD of this movie because I heard so many good things about it from movie critics and movie buffs (I'm a film major.) So early this morning, I spent it watching Flashdance and really looking forward to being blown away.
I was blown away, with boredom. Save for the dance scenes which were not even that fantastic, the movie was lacking in almost everything. Cinematography was dead, the script was ho-hum, and the acting leaves a lot to be desired. The story should have been moving since its about struggling about self esteem and reaching for your dreams but ... it was just really ho-hum.
I am so disappointed. Grrrr ....
