Body Rock is a 1984 film directed by Marcelo Epstein about a young man "from the streets" with a talent for break-dancing. It stars Lorenzo Lamas in the lead role of 'Chilly'. The film featured music by Laura Branigan. The theme was sung by Maria Vidal, which peaked at #48 on the Hot 100, #8 on the US dance charts, and #11 in the UK.[1]

Lamas was nominated for Worst Actor at the Golden Raspberry Awards for his performance. He also performed the track "Fools Like Me" which became his only single to date to crack the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In his book The Official Razzie Movie Guide, John J. B. Wilson, founder of the Golden Raspberry Awards, listed the film as one of The 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made.[2]
