"That Girl" is one of my favorite childhood memories. Watching it now as an adult, I'm quite surprised at the romantic thread that runs through the series. Either I didn't consciously notice this as a child or I'd simply forgotten.
If you watch closely you can see similarities between Main Character Ann Marie and Mary Richards of the TV show Mary Tyler Moore and Carrie of Sex and the City. "That Girl" popularized the single, career girl and not only that, it is extremely funny and entertaining. Fresh writing, a splendid cast and a list of wonderful guest stars make "That Girl" a great choice for a night of movie watching.
