This film is the only ever full disco movie to win an Academy Award for music. The film won the Best Original Song Oscar in 1979 for the song "Last Dance" sung by Donna Summer. The song also won the Golden Globe Award that year for Best Song. In the USA in 1978, "Last Dance" went to number three on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and topped the Hot Disco Action Chart (now the Hot Dance Club Play chart) for six weeks. See more »

Let's go back to Los Angeles 1978 ! Great soundtrack, Diana Ross, The Commodores, The Village People, Oscar winner songwriter for Last Dance Paul Jabara, Pattie Brooks, basically the entire Casablance label was featured in this film!
This movie was rated PG, even tho it includes graphic drug use in many scenes, but back then I guess it was normal.
I recommend this fun movie for a rainy Friday night!
