I've never seen it. Is it bad enough to buy?

Did you live through the disco era? If so, it might be bad enough for you. The musical numbers are actually pretty fun if you like The Village People. The YMCA number is nicely done and features some male frontal if that matters to you - in a 1980 movie that was rated PG. The Milkshake number is another standout. Do the milkshake, the milkshake. Valerie Perrine doesn't really dance, but swivels her hips nicely.

The story part - if you can call it story - features some very hammy acting was directed by Nancy Walker - Rhoda's mother on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda. Just bizarre in every way. (The musical numbers were directed by others.)

The film might have done better except that it was released the day after disco died. Literally.

Every now and then I am in the mood for it, but these days I skip to the musical numbers.

Probably bad enough to buy, but can you rent it somewhere first?

Thanks, it sounds entertaining enough to buy. I was a teenager during the disco era, and still love the music. Actually, I'm surprised I've never owned the soundtrack.

I remember showing up at the Ziegfeld theater in Manhattan on opening night, expecting a crowd, and finding myself with only a handful of people in the cavernous theater. Literally only about 50 people scattered around the seats. The film just landed like a brick, but I thought it was a hoot. Tempted by this new 4K release!

I remember stories that when this production was filming on the streets of Manhattan, another film, "Cruising," was having some scenes shot a few blocks away. Protesters were following "Cruising" around the City and yelling/shouting to make the sound recording problematic, but they picked the wrong film that day, and finally Ms. Walker got on a megaphone and shouted, "Hey, we're the good guys!!!!!!"
