If You Enjoyed The Era - A Must See...If Not, Avoid Completely!
5 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film once a long time ago, sometime around 1984. It was one of those "late night" movies on WTAF TV 29, which runs out of Philadelphia (now WTXF) and I never forgotten it to this day simply because of the excellent soundtrack it had. It was just as good as the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack. It had songs that are very rare and are seldom heard today, such as "You Little Trustmaker" and "DISCO", along with the more popular disco songs like "Disco Duck" and "Copacabana". The story was an odd one: A disco club owner owes his life to a big-time gangster and makes the gangster half-owner of his disco club. Things take a turn for the worse when the disco owner has an affair with the gangster's wife. After the gangster sparred the disco owner's life, that's the worst thing he can do. Best Scene: The owner tries to impress a disco chick by dancing naked in his apartment to the song "Miracles" by Jefferson Starship. Not available on video. I might never see it again. But who cares? I only needed to see it once. And if you ever get a chance to see it again (probably as a "late night" film), you'll understand why. *** out of ****
