In FLASHDANCE, a young woman, Alex (Jennifer Beals), strives to achieve success as a classical dancer, but economic forces require her to work as a welder by day and an exotic dancer by night. Standing in her way is an abundance of profound social obstacles, not the least of which is her boss at the welding factory, Nick (Michael Nouri), who is also her boyfriend. Alex strives to be accepted into a prestigious ballet academy, and she is furious when she realizes that her boyfriend might be pulling strings for her behind the scenes. Along the road to self-discovery and independence, Alex also struggles to accept love, come to terms with her own stubbornness, and find the inner strength to turn her lofty dreams into reality.

Alex Owens is a female dynamo: steel worker by day, exotic dancer by night. Her dream is to get into a real dance company, though, and with encouragement from her boss/boyfriend, she may get her chance. The city of Pittsburgh co-stars. What a feeling! absolutely fantastic!!! nine thumbs up!!!
This was a very entertaining film, the story was good, the characters were great, it was overall a very nice piece of film making. Not usually the kind of person to like this type of movie but had to make an acception this time. Would really recommended this. Great stuff, Great Dancing!!!
This movie still rocks after all these years since it first came out. An excellent and energetic movie from the start. Plot is cutesy. It serves as a vehicle for the wonderful selection of songs and dance sequences. However, I think this version of the movie is missing a few scenes? I would rate this movie version with 5 stars had it been unedited to me.
If memory serves me, didn't Alex receive a letter from her friend, Hannah, when Alex discovered Hannah passed away? Isn't there a reconnection at the end between Mickey and Alex's (girl)friend whom the latter was dating? Wasn't there more of a story build-up between Alex and her boss? If this version is cut in anyway, I prefer getting the complete and unedited version. I find this version incomplete somehow.
But Jennifer Beals looks terrific and one wonders why she didn't star in more movies for her generation.
One of the best movies about dancing and aspirations of its time. This has become a classic now for the dance scenes which were quite spectacular and different when first released. The fashions of the time are also really fascinating to look back on. The acting is only passable but the storyline about a young woman's dream of joining a dance academy remains timeless. The music is great especially the wonderful Irene Cara title song. Unfortunately knowing that the last dance audition scene by Jennifer Beals was mainly dubbed by other real dancers in parts has taken the shine out of it a bit but overall still quite enjoyable even up to this day.
It's hard to beat this 80's classic. Full of energy and spectacular dancing, this is one of my all time faves. Although the script is pretty average as is the acting, it's the general vibe that the movie has that is so great. Leg warmers, permed hair and off the shoulder tops, this is just an overall fun and light-hearted movie. I love it!
