An anthology film retelling the story of the famous Studio 54, a hot disco hangout for the social elite of New York. The movie follows several characters at once, some of whom are in desperate straits and on the verge of crashing.Written by
Though set in New York City, the majority of this film was actually shot in Toronto, Ontario in 1997. Principal photography for this movie was filmed during September, October and November 1997. Re-shoots of the picture were filmed in June 1998 only about two months before the film was due to launch in late August 1998. This additional photography was shot in New York City, and cast were not told the content of the scenes. The additional filming was conducted, due to the poor results from early test screenings. Ultimately, forty-five minutes of the original film was replaced with twenty-five minutes of new footage. The running time went from a two hour version to one around an hour and a half. See more »

Mike Myers should have received that rumored Oscar nomination for this movie...
While the acting is pretty dull in this movie, Mike Myers proved that he can handle serious drama. Shortly after this movie came out, it was rumored that Mike Myers would receive an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for playing the Studio 54 owner. I would have strongly agreed with this nomination, and I only recommend 54 to anyone curious about the serious side of Mike Myers.
