In this film, the mysterious Kira (Olivia Newton-John) appears to assist and inspire a young artist, Sonny Malone (Michael Beck). When she helps him meet up with the rich Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly), the two join up together to create an artistic and business success, an unique club called "Xanadu." ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

Look at Xanadu with an eye toward storytelling superiority and your head will explode. To appreciate the madness within, one must take in the blinding neon sights with an open heart and at least one nostril-coating line of cocaine.
While the movie is every bit as garish and overly shellacked as the other bomb musicals of its era, at least this one looks like irresponsible amounts of money were thrown around.
Semi-Gloss Newton-John, Gene Kelly fantasy musical is dated, but kind of fun.
Kooky abandon and unembarassed chutzpah make it a movie nobody dared to love
Great tunes fill this flavorful bubble gum movie.
campy joyful fun, with a wee bit too much cheese
