Fair is Fair! Stick it to the man with one of the best 80s teen-girl underdog movies ever and a deserved cult classic. After her brother’s scooter is destroyed by a pack of rich brats, Billie Jean Davy is ready to fight for justice. Falsely accused of theft by the boy’s father, Billie Jean must go on the run, but becomes an unlikely heroine for teens across the state. Starring Helen AND Christian Slater and a very young Yeardley Smith (the voice of Bart Simpson), this is one underdog story that will leave you cheering for years to come!
