Review - Flashdance

I've heard most of the songs a thousand times. There isn't much to the movie, and the character of Alex acted like a spoiled brat much of the time, so it was difficult to root for her. In the audition dance scene, a stand-in did the dancing and didn't look at all like Beals especially in the close-ups.
