Critic Reviews for Can't Stop the Music
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!
Audience Reviews for Can't Stop the Music
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.
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.
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.
