New York, Madonna, the 80's. Perfection.

This was THE defining movie of my coming-to-teenage years. I saw a rerun on TV the other night and I still knew all the lines by heart. Thank God for this little gem of a movie, in all its silliness. It takes me back to a time when everything was still possible, and I thought I knew everything although I really knew nothing. Well, now that I know, not everything but a great deal, I still find this movie really likable. It's strange that it's so old, and it still feels quite fresh and exciting. Maybe it's the New York atmosphere, or the sense of excitement that Madonna brings to every one of her scenes. I think she's good in this film because she doesn't yet take herself too seriously and isn't trying too hard. She is a natural performer, after all. How else could you solve the mystery of "the one good movie Madonna ever made"?

Never Gets Old

I don't care how many times I see this movie - it NEVER gets old. NYC was a very big deal back in the day, and this movie captured a lot of it. I miss the Danceteria and the Pyramid Club. What a fun time. The movie is very lighthearted and fun. Makes me want to go back to NYC, even though I know the good times are gone. boohoo

An Off-beat Comedy Triumph

A case of amnesia, complicated by mistaken identity, is what drives this quirky, lovable comedy. But it is more than a comedy. It morphs into a love story and a tale of self-discovery.

"Desperately Seeking Susan" is a clever, quirky film that delights at every turn. Madonna, in her first significant film role, is the eponymous Susan--a wild woman unrestrained by conventions or predictability. Rosanna Arquette plays Roberta, the amnesiac who invents herself using obscure clues in a hatbox as she attempts to discover her true identity. Both women are terrific.

Quirkiness is what drives this film--the story, the dialogue, the casting, the wardrobe, the scenery. Shot in and around New York City, much of the action takes place in neon nightclubs and graffiti-filled alleyways, feeling like it is in the same neighborhood as Mushnick's Flower Shop. Also, look for the snippets of a magic act, a ventriloquist act and a stand-up routine.

Director Susan Seidelman deserves credit for this conglomeration of playness and kitsch, and so do the designers whose attention to detail is apparent in every frame.
