Thank God It's Friday is a fun '70s disco dance movie
After almost 30 years of hearing or reading about the '70s disco movie, Thank God It's Friday, and having taped it for future viewing from AMC 5 years ago, I finally got around to seeing it a couple of hours ago. I must say, I was mainly expecting some cheesy comedy set in a dance club with lame jokes and a bare plot. Instead, most of the intentional punchlines and visual gags worked and I loved the multi-character story lines that occasionally overlapped. Good musical performances by The Commodores and Donna Summer who here plays a struggling singer named Nicole Sims. Her song, "Last Dance" is the highlight of this movie and helped win an Oscar for Best Song for its writers, Giorgio Moroder and Paul Jabara who also plays a character who gets stuck in a staff room backstage. Also appearing are Jeff Goldblum as the club's owner, Debra Winger as a nice girl, and future Berlin lead singer Terri Nunn, who's 16 here, as an underage club hopper. Special mention must go to the guy who plays Marv Gomez (Chick Vennera) who's hilarious dancing on some car roofs having the time of this life. Watch this movie and see if you don't feel the same! By the way, kudos to whoever animated the Columbia Torch Lady dancing...
