Storyline

A retired cop becomes a DJ/celebrity at the Blueberry Hill disco-- he's the "Disco Godfather!" All is well until his nephew flips out on a strange new drug that's sweeping the streets, called "angel dust," or PCP. Disco Godfather vows "to personally come down on the suckers that's producing this shit!" He takes to the streets, slaps drug dealers and even exposes a crooked cop that is covering for the dealers. In between, he still finds time to manage the Blueberry Hill and perform. "Put a little slide in yo' glide," he pleads to the patrons, "Put some weight on it!" Disco Godfather tracks down the kingpin that is behind all the angel dust production, but not before he is kidnapped and forced to inhale PCP through a gas mask! Written by Robert B. DeSalvo <rdesalvo@earthlink.net>

Words can't describe Disco Godfather
28 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Must be the worst film ever made. Certainly the worst "blaxploitation" film, it tried to steal from every popular '70s genre it could... kung-fu, the drug-revenge flick, disco dancing. And it failed, failed, failed. The best scene:

[Disco Godfather is kung-fu fighting a bunch of thugs as a Random Jogger, dressed in powder blue jogging suit and with a towel around his neck, jogs by.]

RJ: Hey man, you need some help?

DG: This is an angel dust factory!

RJ: ANGEL DUST?!

[Random jogger whips off the towel from around his neck and assumes a fighting pose.]

RJ: Let's kick some ass then.
