When Randy (Nicolas Cage) and Fred (Cameron Dye) are in the hills overlooking the Valley, Randy takes a Wowee Whistle from his shirt pocket. Wowee Whistles were novelty harmonicas made from orange chewing wax and were popular Halloween treats during the 1970's and early 1980's. See more »

Everyone has a great list of cinematic guilty pleasures, and "Valley Girl" has been on mine from the first time I saw it. It was clear from the first "valley view" of the San Fernando that it was several cuts above your average teen-aimed movie. Obviously, Nicolas Cage was pretty impressive, even if I had no idea of his heritage or his future. I liked Deborah Foreman, too, and the supporting cast was well-chosen. If the plot was trifling, it was at least clever and certainly not pretentious. And the music, from the opening by Foremen and her friends to the closing shot of the limo ride to Modern English's "I Melt With You," is a big plus. Overall, an very entertaining take on love across the valley of cultural differences from Martha Coolidge, who is one of our most underrated directors.
