A more critical and resonant Hollywood movie about the glorious disco culture screams to be made.

Myers exploits every vicious, self-hating line that comes his way.

Decadence has rarely looked so pathetic, lethargic and dispiriting as it does in this listless film.

The movie is flat, logy, and amateurish -- a Scotch - tape- and - balsa - wood job.

54 is an entertaining and surprisingly serious look at the infamous New York discotheque, with a genuine nostalgia for the late '70s and early '80s, tempered by a healthy dose of jaundice - but without a sense of condescension or superiority.

Except for Myers, and for many he will make the movie worth watching. He's absolutely shagadelic and completely unexpected. This should have been his movie.

You see garbage bags filled with cash, a lot of avid cocaine snorting and fleeting glimpses of Warhol and Truman Capote, but it all feels ho-hum.

The trite story is a letdown because it traverses a predictable arc.
