This is a pretty good movie version of Barry Manilow's legendary Las Vegas show. It starts off a bit sluggishly, to be honest, with a couple of lesser-known songs, but starts to pick up a lot by the time you're fifteen minutes in.
Pretty soon the hits begin to roll thick and fast - though the great man takes a few moments out around the two-thirds milestone to give the audience a pretty cool disco megamix.
Honorable mention goes out to Barry's terrific backing singers, who seem to be able to do it all - sing, dance and generally be brilliant.
I think I read somewhere that Manilow won a well-deserved Emmy for this piece of work.
Definitely worth a look if it shows up on TV ...
