Why does everyone knock the Legend of Billie Jean so much? For me, it's
one of my favorite 80s teen movies. And it's a good exploration into
the concept of vigilante justice as a natural response to not only a
cumbersome justice system, but also a discriminatory one.
Helen Slater is teenager Billie Jean, a nice girl from "the trailers"
of Corpus Christi, Texas. When Hubie Pyat (Barry Tubbs) and some other
local pranksters trash her brother Binx's (Christian Slater) motor
scooter, she demands compensation. But Hubie refuses to pay and his
father uses the opportunity to offer that Billie Jean trade some sexual
favors to him for the cash. In the midst of her flight from the
pervert, there's scuffle, and Mr. Pyat is accidentally shot. So, Billie
Jean, her brother, and two friends involved in the accident, suddenly
finds themselves on the run from the police.
Rather than surrendering, they use their new teenage fugitive status to
stage something of a protest ("fair is fair"), and Billie Jean becomes
their hero and icon for teenage rebellion as well as feminism. They
become the martyrs of teenagers while the adults dismiss the entire
thing as a bunch of rambunctious teenagers gone out of control. So,
there is political significance in the story of Billie Jean in looking
at the criminal justice system (although some of the discrimination
against Billie Jean such as denying her any sort of expedited
compensation occurs as a result of the system not intervening at all).
If Billie Jean was an adult, would she have been taken seriously? What
if Billie Jean were a male? Would that change the situation. Indeed,
this movie suggests that it would.
In a decade filled with themes of teen angst, this one offers one story
of the possibility of teen (and female) empowerment in a way that Pump
Up the Volume or other movies like that did. I always thought it was a
pretty good 80s movie and one that, judging by the message boards,
still caters to a loyal audience as many of those long-lasting 80s
movies do. Plus, as far as important 80s movie characteristic go, it's
got good actors (Helen Slater, Christian Slater, Peter Cyote, and Kieth
Gordon), and a good soundtrack (featuring Pat Benetar's "Invincible"
and the Divinyls).
