Movie Info

In this fictional account of the Village People, fashion model Samantha Simpson (Valerie Perrine) helps her roommate, Jack Morrell (Steve Guttenberg), try to get a record deal. Morrell's demo isn't perfect, so Simpson searches New York for a proper group to sing the songs and finds a group made up of a police officer, a cowboy, a construction worker, a soldier, an Indian and a biker. They are primed for success, but complications arise when advertisers grow wary of their image.

    Almost 20 minutes left in the "film" and the player crashes....good. I guess I found my walk-out movie. This "film" holds underdevelopment, underused characters, poor directing, terrible writing, atrocious acting, bad editing, exaggerated cheesiness, cliches and still more problems. I suppose some of the characters are likeable, but only because there is hardly anything to hate about them, where as the unlikeable characters have little to make them likeable. The characters are paint-by-numbers cheesy cliches that I would liken to drones. As for the music, the soundtrack is pretty dang good, but the musical numbers are painfully forced in and seem to (what am I saying "seem to" for?) go on forever. (I think I blew a fuse when Sam said "One more time." at the end of the "Milk Shake" song) In the end, it was a waste of my time and I thank whatever caused that player to crash. I end by at least saying this: Congradulation on the first Worst Picture Razzie ever, it was well-deserved.

    A fun, cheesy, musical about the Village People! Whether or not you like the band, if you like fun 80s movies that are a little cheesy, you'll enjoy this movie like I did. Of course, it could be a little better, but it's pretty good.

    Cheesy-as-heck. Not much man-loving goes on. It's mostly a song and dance extravangaza in the 70's style, so don't fear kiddies. Not campy enough to warrant a re-watch.

    Mindnumbingly awful, a LOT of terrible acting, particularly Bruce Jenner, and laugh out loud ridiculous musical numbers but still hypnotic in its hopeless crassness and late 70's-early 80's excess.
