Storyline

The Legend Of Billie Jean  Average Texas teen, Billie Jean Davy, is caught up in an odd fight for justice. She is usually followed and harrased around by local boys, who, one day, decide to trash her brother’s scooter for fun. The boys’ father refuses to pay them back the price of the scooter. The fight for “fair is fair” takes the teens around the state and produces an unlikely hero.

Never Sell Out or Give Up -Reliving my twenties with a smile and a nod to Pat Bentar

The Legend Of Billie Jean  Some days I just want to take it easy and remember the good old days when I was a teenager and had no real problems. This film takes me back 20 years, when in the heat of the summer night we used to sneak out the 2nd story window to adventure and excitement.

The acting is believable, characters well cast and film nicely shot. Its a getaway for forty something women, with an awesome but not egotistical heroine, a solid loyal sibling and a sweet sincere romantic guy that we all dream of meeting someday.

The song “Invincible” from the soundtrack by Pat Bentar stirs up even more memories of a time when MTV was young and the short hair cut was a sign of rebellion and the contrary move for strong young women. Thank god I grew up in a time when I didn’t have to tattoo my body or pierce my face to show I was tough or different or independent.

Excellent Movie !

 
I don’t understand why this movie wasn’t more better received. After the Supergirl fiasco, this movie should have made Helen Slater’s career. She plays a small mid-western girl with a younger brother (Christian Slater- not her real brother) constantly being harassed for being poor. When the motor bike is trashed and vandalized, she goes to the future criminal’s father for the repair fee, but the guy is worst than his son. He blames her for a crime that never happened and even profits from the media coverage of her pursuit. Peter Coyote is the police investigator who believes her and sticks by her side even when a rich kid (Keith Gordon) fakes his kidnapping to follow her and irk his father (Dean Stockwell). It’s a great movie and great script excelled even more by the voice of Pat Benatar. Ten stars !
