THE LEGEND OF BILLIE JEAN starts out as a mildly interesting, semi-realistic story of life in rural Texas, then takes a headlong plunge into the preposterous. Teenagers Billie Jean (Helen Slater) and her brother Binx (Christian Slater) are on an outing at the local swimming hole, when

Binx's prize motor scooter is stolen by a gang of thugs, led by Hubie (Barry Tubb). Later Billie Jean finds Binx bloodied and the scooter a shambles. The next day she takes a bill for the scooter's repair to a beachside souvenir shop, run by Hubie's father, Pyatt (Richard Bradford). Pyatt agrees

to give her the money, then tries to rape her. Binx enters the store and accidentally shoots Pyatt in the shoulder with a gun he has found in the register. The frightened teenagers then take it on the lam.

THE LEGEND OF BILLIE JEAN is a film that grows more ludicrous with every sequence. Indeed, if any of the characters behaved with the slightest semblance of logic, there'd be no story at all. Though obviously designed for the teenage market, BILLIE JEAN should insult the intelligence of all but

the most irredeemable mall rats.
