It's Friday and everyone is going to the hot new disco. The Commodores are scheduled to play if Floyd shows up with the instruments and Nicole dreams of becoming a disco star. Other characters are there to win the dance contest, or to put a little excitement into a fifth anniversary. Written by

During the dance contest, Frannie is dancing with Marv in blue platform-soled shoes. But after they win the contest and go to the stage to collect their prize, a wide shot reveals that she is barefoot. Probably most of the actual dancing was done this way, rather than in those dangerous platform soles. See more »

In the initial theatrical release, the usually static Columbia Pictures "Torch Lady" logo does a brief dance step to the disco music via animation at the beginning of the film. See more »
If you like multi character movies, this will not disapoint. The mainly unknown cast are all rather likeable folks. and Paul Jabara is very good in his only screen role. YOu will be touched by the scene of him and a lovley young girl who are locked in a stairway but end up boogooing anyway. I especially love the plot about the fat guy and the tall thin schoolteacher who are mismatched by a dating service. Except for a few drug scenes, this is a terrific family picture, too. And the best you will ever see Debra Winger on screen. She looks soft and pretty. The music is very good, strong voices and tunes, much better than the dance music of the last 20 years. Check out this movie for some good light entertainment.
