Trivia

Ryan Phillippe's character is based on Tieg Thomas, who worked at the legendary Studio 54 from 1977 to 1982. 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.

A great movie .... very under-rated
22 July 2000 | by (Arizona, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was great. Not only did it have a wonderful star studded cast, but it managed to make a well known story very origional. Ryan Phillipe in the lead role was brilliant not often have i seen him act up to his potential like he did in this movie (Movies he did that sucked: I know what you did last summer, Nowhere)Mike Meyers also stunned me showing is versitality in one of his few serious dramatic roles. Breckin Meyer was great (Big step up from Dancer TX Pop. 81) Selma Hayek was great. My only complaint was Neve Cambell, I just think she could have done better. Great Great movie!! A must see for those who are nostalgic, or those who want a glimpse of the era we barely missed.
