Trivia

The name of the discotheque where the movie is set was The Zoo. The nightclub used for the Zoo was the no longer remaining Osko's which was situated at 333 South La Cienega Boulevard, south of 3rd Street, Los Angeles, California. The club was demolished during the 1980s and in its place was built a Loehmann's dress store. Osko's was the first name of its owner Osko Karaghossian who appeared in the film. Osko's Disco was famous for being like a labyrinth as well as having four dance floors. See more »

Goofs

Just watch it to see Donna Summer sing Last Dance. Awesome.
13 February 2002 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

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.
