AllMusic Review by

In this, the lovely Phoebe Cates lends her vocal talents to the sparkly come-ons "How Do I Let You Know" and "Just One Touch" (she also once sang a Sesame Street number about measuring). A cool little Rick Springfield throwaway pops up (in a cheerleader aerobics scene). Meanwhile, the Stray Cats' chugalugging "Rock This Town," Nilsson's pricelessly profane "You're Breaking My Heart," and Vanity 6's lusciously lewd "Nasty Girl" appear to be MIA, yet are pivotal to the movie. So considering this bit of arcana has disappeared (like most soundtracks) and Cates looks better than she sings, listeners are better off just buying the video.
