Subject: The Worst Disco Films

Written By: Entouch on 05/04/08 at 10:01 pm

When Saturday Night Fever came out it seemed to open the door to a few 'b-movie' disco theme films. I can only say I remember 'Roller Boogie' and 'Thank God its Friday'(I did like this one better).  Perhaps you guys can remember some films that came and went in that era. :D

Disco Godfather (1979) - what do you get when you combine disco dancing, rollerboogie, kung-fu fighting, blaxploitation, drugs, sex, and a pimp?  Thats right, Disco Godfather.


This has to be the best movie trailer I have ever seen.

Even though it came out in 1980, Can't Stop the Music which starred the Village People might fit in this category - it also featured Valerie Perrine and Steve Guttenberg.

That one was pretty bad.  Bruce Jenner got a WELL-DESERVED razzie nomination for worst performance by an actor in a motion picture LOL

'Can't Stop the Music' was directed by Nancy Walker, who is best known as Rhoda's mother Ida Morganstern on the 70s sitcom 'Rhoda'

As for a film itself Saturday Night Fever was atrocious and it was the music that made the film, and on my viewing of the film I fell asleep during it.

I am with you on Thank God it's Friday.  I did not like Truck Turner if anyone knows that one.

Speaking of "Roller Boogie", TCM (Turner Classic Movies) will show this movie very early Saturday morning at 12:45 AM PST. I've never seen it but I plan on recording it.
