Details on home video releases of The In Crowd...

Even wide-screen and Dolby Digital can’t save this movie, but the commentary provided by Lori Heuring and Susan Ward is unintentionally revealing, as they laughingly point out many of the fatal flaws within the script.

Their personal reflections about some of the film’s sexual moments are interesting as well. At one point Ward complains of having to wear a sheer top without a bra, yet she exposes her breasts earlier in the movie. In another scene, Heuring wears a nearly transparent bra and complains of her embarrassment in watching the movie with her dad.

An interesting family discussion could be started from the girls’ comments that actresses have no choice in what they wear—they are hired only to read their lines.

Did you know that wardrobe decisions were made by the creative staff of a production and not by the actors? Did you realize that these were conscious, well thought out choices?

Do you think movies like these influence people—young women especially—in what is acceptable attire? Do movies and entertainers affect popular fashion design?

Are actors and actresses really without choice? What consequences might they face if they just said no? What price would you be willing to pay in order to be a star?

For women in show biz, taking your clothes off has long been accepted as a wrung on the ladder of success. How is this perception strengthened every time a movie is made including these elements? Does the audiences’ patronage of these movies encourage more films of this nature?

Could things change if we just said No?
