Heather Graham’s run of interesting material couldn’t last forever, as she proved she wasn’t impervious to the power of hackneyed genre fare. John Travolta scored a Razzie nom for his role as a music teacher who shows some juvenile detainees the joys of rock and roll.
Graham starred in one of her more buttoned-down roles as the winsome daughter of the institution’s cruel warden. She catches the eye of inmate Jesse Tucker, who sets about seducing her in the hammiest way possible.
Free Spirit? Hardly, though she needn’t be totally ashamed: Gwyneth Paltrow also absorbs some of the embarrassment.
