I recall in the background of the song "Hey Now" the local water tower was visible. It didn't look like the name printed was Plano or Red Oak but I never quite caught it. Wonder what mall they shot the fashion show scene in. Nowadays that would be in an outdoor lifestyle center.

Yes, the interior shots were NorthPark and the exterior shots were Big Town Mall in Mesquite (long gone and not to be confused with Town East Mall). There was a water tower near BTM.

From IMDB “goofs” for the film:

The movie supposedly takes place in the town of Virgil, Texas. However, in one scene where little children in 4-H shirts are dancing in a field, a water tower is briefly visible in the background that clearly says "RED OAK".

Would love to see this film again.
