Twenty-five totally-for-sure Valley girl truths, as told by one of the SFV's own
ALL the touchstones of Valley Girl lingo turn up in the opening moments of Martha Coolidge's ''Valley Girl,'' which opens today at the National and other theaters, raising the question of where the movie has to go. The answer, regrettably, is not much of anywhere. The plot revolves around one very fashionably dressed suburban girl, Julie, and her efforts to exchange an old boyfriend ''It's like I'm totally not in love with you anymore, Tommy - I mean, it's so boring'' for a new one. Not much happens here, nor does much happen to Julie's Woodstock Generation parents, who appear periodically to compromise their daughter's unassailable cool by forcing her to help out in their health-food store. Julie's old beau is a straitlaced surfer type, while the new one has more of a punk look. So the screenplay contains a speech or two about how appearances aren't really everything, a point also applicable to Julie's mom and dad played by Colleen Camp and Frederic Forrest. But the movie doesn't pursue this very thoroughly, and it sounds a one-joke note that's seldom as funny as it means to be.
