Glitz producer Allan Carr tries to cash in on the late-'70s disco boom with Can't Stop the Music -- a film of such Brobdingnagian banality that it almost in itself stopped the disco movement cold. Comedienne Nancy Walker directed this musical chronicle, purporting to relate the legend of the formation of the disco group The Village People. Valerie Perrine is Samantha Simpson, a helpful ex-model who attempts to get her roommate, Jack Morrell's (Steve Guttenberg), songwriting career off the ground

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
The Village People, along with ex-Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner, have a long way to go in the acting stakes.
A wretchedly sub-standard score from Jacques Morali and production numbers of exceptional tackiness round things off.
The unevenness of the acting comes as a kind of blessing, though, since the rest of the movie is so thoroughly homogenized.
Please DO stop the music! A '70s disco holdover.
This botched affair... goes absolutely nowhere and failed to cause much of a stir with moviegoers who, by the time of its release, were jumping on the disco backlash bandwagon.
It's tough to believe any movie that opens with Steve Guttenberg dancing on rollerskates could actually get worse from there, but it does -- and in such spectacular fashion!
An absolute train wreck of a movie, but viewed as a sort of fevered dream, some hilariously campy moments!
Points for not calling it "The Village People Movie" -- but not many.
