Variety reports that MGM was, like, vegging out at the mall one day, and this one guy was like, "Oh my gawd, we should, like, so totally remake a bitchin' movie!" And this one other guy was all, like, "Duh, I was totally just thinking the same thing!" Then the first guy was all, "No way! Fer sure?" and the other guy goes, like, "Totally fer sure! Oh my gawd, wouldn't it be way rad if everyone was, like, singing and dancing in it?" and then they were both, like, "Awesome to the max!" And thus the musical remake of 1983's Valley Girl was born.
