This is the correct review of the film from someone who watched it
27 October 2005 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Late 50's teen idol Desmond (FABIAN) and his comical manager (CASEY KASEM) gets mixed up with a corrupt disco owner/music manager Cybill who wants to sign Desmond up for a contract only to use him for a opening act for a new disco singer (MICHAEL BLODGETT) on a new DISCO inside a airplane. Fabian sings 3 new songs (not disco) in this very lost gem. In fact, his song "movin' on" sounds like a 1973 song, not 1978. Do not believe on other reviews of this film, THIS FILM DOES NOT CONTAIN TOP 40 HITS, this film contains original songs and music. Any film with Casey Kasem playing a Horny manager and King of Kustomizer George Barris in it, it's should be out on DVD! BTW, the scene the previous reviewer mentioned are NOT IN THIS FILM. no Manilow, no Jefferson starship, but we do get Shabba-Doo the Breakdancer in it!
