Foxes (1980)

Ex-TV commercial director Adrian (Flashdance, 9½ Weeks) Lyne made his feature film debut with this slick movie about four teenage girls and their problems with life and men.

A young Jodie Foster is Jeanie, the straight arrow sorting out her friends at “boring” North Hollywood High, which include podgy, unloved Madge (Marilyn Kagan), compulsive liar Deirdre (Kandice Stroh), and abused hooker Annie (ex-Runaways band member Cherie Currie).

Foster’s Bugsy Malone co-star Scott Baio provides the male interest, but it’s really one to watch for the girls, who all overcome a clichéd script to give a good depiction of what it was like to be a teenager at the end of the 1970s.
