At the center of this shallow attempt to show the plight of kids on the streets of New York are two teenage girls--one wealthy, the other her tough-talking, lower-class friend--who leave home to live near Times Square. Continually breaking things and causing trouble, they apparently
subscribe to the punk movement's anarchistic philosophy, though the film never takes on this theme directly. Eventually the girls turn to music, which, if nothing else, gets them off the streets. Also involved is Tim Curry (THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW) as a late-night disc jockey, a sort of
messiah of modern music, which plays loudly and too abundantly throughout the film.
