Bjarne is coming of age. His mother is immensely frightened that her little worm will be unable to drop his childhood follies and focus on his new work at a waste processing plant. Unfortunately for her she is right as Bjarne indulges into his new passion: creating a disco band and scooping up a huge prize at the talent competition. This leads him to create Sunshine Barry and the Disco Worms. On bass: his best friend the extremely overweight Jimmy. On guitar: metal-head Niller: On backup vocals: pretty-worm Gloria. On drums: secretary music-extraordinaire Donna.
A mildly entertaining affair, which starts of a bit tedious and uninspiring, but actually manages to hit the funk somewhere towards the end with a couple of nicely sold gags plus surprisingly well-scripted (albeit extremely predictable) plotting. Even though the characters are mostly unsympathetic (save for maybe the characters of Niller and Donna) the movie manages to hit home with the boogie. I really must say that I was taken slightly by surprise, as I was expecting a semi-digested turd, but instead actually found myself enjoying the final third of the movie.
The movie will never get applauds for innovative script or spectacular jokes, while the charm is all over the place, but the essential question is whether the disco fever will channel through your body by the end. In my case I would have to say yes.
