X Meets Y isn't supposed to get crosswicks.
* XMeetsY: ''Film/TheDeerHunter'' meets ''Film/{{Rocky}}''. Certainly, a couple of those early-eighties dance sequences can trigger [[EpilepticFlashingLights 'Nam flashbacks]].

Doesn't meet the trope's criteria, which excludes May-September.
* MayDecemberRomance: Nick is also quite older than Alex. Lampshaded by the critics who say that the age difference is WAY too big among both the charas and the actors to be believable.

The film was a '''monster''' success (Only Creator/RogerEbert dared to slam it) and a StarMakingRole for Beals. This is partly attributed to the then-newfangled {{MTV}}, which played excerpts from the film's dance numbers on a continuous loop. In effect, ''Flashdance'' became the standard for music videos produced in conjunction with big-budget movies.
