Trivia

Though set in New York, the majority of this film was actually shot in Toronto, Canada in 1997. Principal photography for this movie was filmed during September, October and November 1997. Re-shoots of the picture were filmed in June 1998 only about two months before the film was due to launch in late August 1998. This additional photography was shot in New York and cast were not told the content of the scenes. The additional filming was conducted due to the poor results from early test screenings. Ultimately, 45 minutes of the original film was replaced with 25 minutes of new footage, the running time went from a two hour version to one around an hour and a half. See more »

Goofs

One Big Party Until You Come Down From The High
11 January 1999 | by (Medford/Ashland Oregon) – See all my reviews

Studio 54 was a swift, colourful flick that showed us the true ins and outs of the seventies. The only difference is that the writers remembered the seventies .. thus, they obviously didn't really live the seventies atmosphere to its fullest. Mr Ryan Phillippe, in my opinion, took on an enormous task in performing this role ... I mean who else could you get to wear tight clothing, push pills, make drinks, take sexual harassment from a male employer, and still look pretty? Ms Campbell' purpose in this movie showed young girls that you can get somewhere with talent and not just looks. Basically, the script was compelling, the acting was sought as half way and ended up getting three quarters ... so overall I say that this isn't that bad of a flick if you are looking for something out of the everyday norm. I gave this movie a rating of a "9" because it is a personal favourite of mine, and the casting was one of the best combos, for my taste in movies. - David Wills christian 11/01/99
