bamersy eluded to the fact that girl on the cover of the "Valley Girl" VHS tape doesn't look like Deborah Foreman did in the movie. And skatexedge gave his opinion (which is widely accepted) that the girl on the cover isn't really Deborah Foreman, but possibly Tina Theberge who played Randy's ex-girlfriend Samantha in the movie.. then there is my opinion .. I think it was suppose to be Deborah Foreman, but the artist just had a bad picture of her to work off of to develop the cover... where did that outfit she's wearing come from anyway?

So let's conjure up some debate Rewind style.. what is your opinion?

Here is a picture of VHS, the movie poster, and screenshot from my future 80's Movie Network..

Oh and while we are discussing the cover .. let's talk about what we really think Julie said to Stacey before they got in the car when leaving Suzi's party.

Deborah Foreman claims it was "Randy is skillish, okay".. what?? The subtitles on the DVD reads "But the rating scale is okay".. double what?? I think it was suppose to be "But Randy's friend looks okay", but got flubbed and with the tight budget on the movie they just went with it..

Come on.. let's get some ideas here!

I've always wondered about who the girl was too. Heather Thomas?

I think it was just a terrible job by the artist and it is supposed to be Foreman.

It does look like Samantha's face-I just always thought they did the cover as someone's "ideal" Valley Girl. Julie was way more down to Earth, nowhere near the vacant ditz on the cov!

Maybe they messed up that line too .. at least for the girl on the box cover: "She's got the bod, but her brains are bad news."

ya think? ha

I can't imagine they wouldn't put the two main characters on the front cover...then say..."She's cool. He's hot. She's from the valley. He's not." In quotes directly beside them. Hmmm...maybe the artist got the job and skimmed through the movie on fast forward...too lazy to watch the whole thing...Definitely a poor job by the artist, but what I don't understand is...how could the execs of a movie receive this as a final product and say..."Wow...that's perfect!" I just don't get it....

Here is my trashy tabloid take on it....

I heard a recent radio interview deb did and she mentioned something about Martha Coolidge not being thrilled by her for the part of Julie but that the producers really pushed for her. Maybe martha's opinion of deb influenced the making of the poster?? Hmmmm, ya never know.....

The term "skill / skillful" was common enough at the time of Valley Girl. I remember people would describe anything good as "skill"; "Duran Duran are skill".

aTomik.. back in the early 90's.. that VHS tape was like 80's gold. "Valley Girl" went out-of-print and it seemed like it was forever until they release it again on DVD.

It got to the point where I was on my last VHS copy and it was getting so bad .. I had to ration my viewings because the tape could break at any moment.

Video is easy to repair! You usually end up losing a few seconds of the movie. I had to mend many a videotape.

"She's cool. He's hot. She's from the Valley. He's not."

The second part of that meant nothing to people outside the US in the early 80's!

in any case, reminds me of the sweet valley high books from the 80s. love it all.
