Addendum: Showgirls, Teen Wolves, and Astro Zombies

After hearing "Staying Alive" on the muzak at work I have to confess I have seen another one of Michael Adam's bad movies from Showgirls, Teen Wolves, and Astro Zombies.  To add to my grand total of 2 movies and about one-half I 'fessed up to in my review I have also seen the entirety of Staying Alive multiple times.

I'll just chalk that one up to a dance-obsessed childhood spent in Iowa - Cynthia Rhodes is amazingly flexible, I'm talking greater than 180 degree extensions, and I used to just fast forward through the movie just to watch her dance.  I actually asked my parents to rent this so I could watch her since I was obsessed with Dirty Dancing at the time (I'd never seen Saturday Night Fever).  The choreography in Staying Alive is pretty much crap, the direction and acting are nil, and I still can't quite figure out the "plot" of the "musical" everyone performs in at the end.
