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 »

What time is it?
Fabulous. We're gonna get killed! We were supposed to be home at 11!
[counting their share of the prize money]
$50, Frannie! We can pay back my brother! We got enough for the concert!
Who cares about that dumb old concert? That's for kids. We're disco queens now.
Hey, it's too bad you disco queens got to be home so early. If we hurry, we can make it to Big Mama's for the one o'clock dance contest.
Our parents will kill us.

Just watch it to see Donna Summer sing Last Dance. Awesome.
Donna Summer re-launching her career back then and becoming the undisputed "Disco Queen" of the 70's. Seeing some young faces of some actors of today is also a good reason to get it out, like Geoff (Jeff?) Goldblum from Jurrassic Park 1 and 2. Standout has to be Donna Summer as Nicole when she sings Last dance and gets everyone rocking.
