Actors Otis Day (billed as DeWayne Jessie) and Ray Vitte playing Floyd and Bobby Speed respectively, both had previously appeared in the disco-soundtrack film Car Wash (1976) which was arguably the first ever disco movie. See more »
During the dance contest, Frannie is dancing with Marv in blue platform-soled shoes. But after they win the contest and go to the stage to collect their prize, a wide shot reveals that she is barefoot. Probably most of the actual dancing was done this way, rather than in those dangerous platform soles. See more »

I was born in 1979, so I really can't say I know that time well. My generation sucks when it comes to being social and music, I was curious after seeing "Saturday Night Fever". Yea, disco to some, sucks. But they close minded folks you really don't want to be around. OK, polyester was hot has hell to ware, Carter was an idiot, people waited to fuel for hours, but people still knew how to have fun when times where rough.
If you want to step into a time warp, this is it. It's a light hearted take in 1978 when disco was huge. You could be anyone, any color, any sex anything and just be open with who you where. The music is great, it's got a great "happy" beat to it. Seeing people I have only heard of was really neat to see. Donna Summer and Paul Jaba make an appearance and Debra Winger from "Terms of Endearment" was one of the main stars looking for "Mr. Right". Also Jeff Goldblum is the greasy owner of the "Zoo" (Dose this guy ever age?). All in all it was entertaining. If your looking for something to challenge your mind or award winning, look some place else. If you want to feel better, relax a bit, this movie is for you.
