Goofs

Halfway through the movie, Frannie and Jeannie are sitting on a car. Just as they start walking away, the car starts to drive off with Jeannie's purse on it (with all their money). As Jeannie and Frannie start chasing after it you can see Jeannie look down to find her mark to stop in the right spot for the camera shot. See more »

Quotes

Dave: [watching Sue dance with Tony] If she can experience, I can experience.
[He walks over to Jackie]
Dave: You always stand like that?
Jackie: Only when I feel my energy being drained. Standing on one leg doesn't allow the energy complete flow. You can lose it in the floor. Would you like to dance?
Dave: Well, uh...
Jackie: Yes! You would.
Dave: Yeah, O.K.

.....DONNA SUMMER.

All Donna Summers scenes are great and funny. If you get a chance take a look at her FEET, she has the biggest feet I have seen on a woman. Maybe her shoes were to small or something but it's hilarious.

Donna steals the show when she sings the CLASSIC song "Last Dance" and leaves the Commadores looking a little flat.

One other moment in the movie is when Donna breaks into the DJ box and trys to sing on the microphone over the track playing. The song is another classic of hers "Love To Love You Baby".

Jeff Goldblum, Debra Winger and "Doris" from Fame are also thrown in the mix.
