Trivia

Writer-director Mark Christopher spent about five years writing and researching the disco era and Studio 54. See more »

Goofs

Obviously, in editing, someone erroneously placed the New Year's Eve invitation close-up just before the Christmas party. Some considerable time later, there was a totally separate New Year's Eve Party and that NY Eve invitation close-up was undoubtedly filmed to appear just before it, not Christmas. See more »

Quotes

Shane O'Shea: [voiceover] A guy named Steve Rubell had a dream: To throw the best damned party the world had ever seen and to make it last forever. He built a world where fantasy was put up as reality and where an 80-year-old disco queen could dance till dawn. Where models mingled with mechanics, plumbers danced with princes. It was a place where all labels were left behind. A place where there were no rules.

Great movie
16 September 1999 | by (Mentor, OH) – See all my reviews

It's unknown to me why this movie got such a bad review from critics. There are alot of factual errors about the club, yes. But this seemed to be a great movie. Mike Myers was an excellent pick for Steve Rubell, he had the same personality as Rubell in the movie.

Another thing is the story is so interesting about Studio 54, it was a fad, hip, and unusual place for it's time. Not only that, the story of the controversial club is one that really is unknown to some.

The story might not be dead on accurate, and some of the characters might be factual, and there could be alot of mistakes in the movie, but it's still a great one to watch when you get past it.

I would suggest watching VH-1's Behind The Music on Studio 54 first before seeing the movie, for a clear understanding on the club. That way you don't get freaked out.
