Next time you want to win a bar bet, ask somebody what Madonna's first movie was. Most likely they'll say "Desperately Seeking Susan," but, no, it's "Vision Quest" in which she is billed as "singer at club." Her early hit "Crazy for You" is featured prominently on the soundtrack. Because I quickly got bored with this movie about wrestling and "losin' it," I imagined a movie in which Madonna never made it out of that small town and sang in bars for a few bucks and a chance to dream. That's a real vision quest right there! 1985's "Vision Quest" is both an inspiring sports movie and a coming of age tale set in the restless urban sprawl of Spokane, Washington. Matthew Modine, Linda Forentino (As the sensual older woman), Ronny Cox, and, in a tiny role, Forest Whitaker star. The very 80s soundtrack features Journey, Foreigner, and Sammy "Can't Drive 55" Hagar. It is the best film ever set in Spokane. Director Harold "Becks" Becker also did the not really an 80s classic "Taps" and 2 films with Al Pacino, "Sea of Love" and "City Hall."

One of my favorite 80's movies. Yes, it centers around wrestling and a guy trying to get laid. Yes, the acting is sub par. However, the soundtrack is great and the movie is seriously inspirational. A simple movie that excels in it's expression.
