Even by the low rent standards of Crown International Pictures, NIGHT CLUB is an awful film. It's a long forgotten, zero budget, 1989 tale about a bickering young couple who buy an old warehouse and plan to turn it into a thriving nightclub, but they run into problems - financial and otherwise - along the way.
It amuses me that the IMDb defines this as 'action, comedy, drama' while my TV guide called it a horror. There's no action, horror, or comedy in it and the drama is limited to scenes of the whiny lead bitching about various trivialities. Viewers will quickly tire of Nicholas Hoppe's intensely irritating lead character which is off-putting in itself. 95% of the running time consists of characters sitting around in or fooling around in the abandoned warehouse while nothing happens to further the non-existent plot.
Occasionally a Tarantino-lookalike gangster comes into the fray, but to pad out the film for the most part there's a series of incessant sex and nude scenes. These are silly and dated looking in the extreme, and the cheesy music that plays during them (and elsewhere) helps to make this film feel incredibly dated. It really is a mess, and one of the worst I've seen.
