Village People - Can't Stop the Music
Village People - Can't Stop the Music (1980)

Glitz producer Allan Carr tries to cash in on the late-'70s disco boom with Can't Stop the Music -- a film of such Brobdingnagian banality that it almost in itself stopped the disco movement cold. Comedienne Nancy Walker directed… More

An absolute train wreck of a movie, but viewed as a sort of fevered dream, some hilariously campy moments!

Time Out

A wretchedly sub-standard score from Jacques Morali and production numbers of exceptional tackiness round things off.

Mindnumbingly awful, a LOT of terrible acting, particularly Bruce Jenner, and laugh out loud ridiculous musical numbers but still hypnotic in its hopeless… More

Cheesy-as-heck. Not much man-loving goes on. It's mostly a song and dance extravangaza in the 70's style, so don't fear kiddies. Not campy enough… More
