Forgettable '70s musical fluff, over produced, not that listenable.

March 6, 2008

There is a transvestite who takes about eight hours in the men's bathroom to electric shave his bust, making him the only gay in this disco (aside from Debra Winger's AC/DC dance partner).

Interesting as a time-capsule of the disco era.

Audience Reviews for Thank God It's Friday

i have such fond memories of going with a group of friends seeing this in the theater now some may call this a 'saturday night fever' knock off but i disagree the music is the same but otherwise they r both different.

Great soundtrack, terrible script. Thank God It's Friday is too dumb and not so funny, the movie try imitate anothers comedy of 70's, what don't works, just worse. Rotten.

I know, generally people think that all the disco movies are trying to be like Saturday Night Fever, but this one isn't, it's just a comedy that takes place one night at a disco. This movie has a lot of really funny jokes, I especially liked the one involving Goldblum. Plus, we get a fantastic performance from Donna Summer. I really like this movie, it's fun.
