Near the end of the film, Bobby Speed is shown putting a record from Motown Records inside the sleeve for MECO's Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk. The album was put out by Millenium Records, which was at the time a subsidiary of Casablanca Records (co-producer of the film with Motown Records). In Meco's long career, he has also been associated with, in chronological order, Casablanca Records and RCA, but never with Motown Records. See more »

I have a little hunch about something. Are you a stewardess for TWA?
No. She's a wife... with the PTA. You know, uh, supermarkets, church, McDonald's. You know the type.

This is about the only "disco" movie that I have ever liked. To me, it really captures the time & spirit of the late '70s disco craze. Everyone from Debra Winger and her co-worker looking for guys that don't wear polyester, to the great music of the Commodores and Donna Summer make this a nice slice of '70s nostalgia. Everything '70s is represented in this movie: 8-tracks, platform shoes, bell-bottom pants, leisure suits, I think there is even a Ford Pinto in the parking lot of the disco. I feel that this movie never got the recognition that it deserved. It seemed to be drowned out by "Saturday Night Fever" and "Can't Stop The Music". If you are looking for a movie that will bring back the feeling of the '70s, this one is a great choice.
