I really like Thank God It's Friday because reminds me of my very young years. Perhaps this movie today does not represents much, but is itself a simbol of an era. At that time (1978) the movie was a fashion hit due to the disco vogue, becoming the Academy Award Winner as the best musical theme in 1978 (Last Dance). Donna Summer was at the top of her career, and Jeff Goldblum with Debra Winger were new debutants in the movie business, who years later became big Hollywood movie stars because of this movie. This movie is actually a lot much better and fun than many other musicals. The music itself has better quality than much of today's music which absence of quality, taste and talent is so evident (and presence of violence, terrible languaje and sex and drugs abuse is so evident as well). The only one thing I really don't like from this 1978's movie is the consumption of drugs, but at that time that was considered pretty tame. However the young people at that time watched the movie more for the fun to enjoy it and the fashion of the disco vogue, than the drugs use or abuse. This movie is much fun and it is a way to say : go ahead and have fun at least one time in your life!. Be young and be happy once everywhile! Dance and enjoy yourself! This is an Anmerican classic in my opinion because it is the mirror and reflex of an era. 1978's Thank God It's Friday obtained actually the Academy Award that Saturday Night Fever didn't get in 1977! And both are pretty much about the same stuff. However Saturday Night Fever focused more in the personal life of a dancer ("Tony", John Travota), but Thanks God It's Friday was made to focus in the common and real people having fun in the best Disco of the town, as we actually did in the discos at that time, with Tarzan included!.
