“There are all the usual running gags, and as a whole the film is only mildly entertaining.
“ Moreover, Klane and Bernstein astutely peg the gaudy threads, thumping insanely groovy music, anything-goes hedonism, uninhibited excessive drug use, and sense of pure live-for-the-moment fun which were hallmarks of the 70's disco craze in a breezy and snappy way.
“ I have to say I really enjoyed it - I love disco, and this movie didn't disappoint in that area.

“ Even Debra Winger gave an enjoyable performance.
“ Enjoyable multi character film .
“ Incredibly cheezy, but enjoyable .

“ Donna Summer provides momentary relief from the predictable plot when she sings "Last Dance for Love," and later when the Commodores appear on-stage.
“ An immensely enjoyable 70's time capsule.
“ Among the highlights are Vennera's exciting and exuberant impromptu parking lot solo dance, Summer belting out the glorious Oscar-winning disco smash "Last Dance," and the delightfully energetic big dance contest.
“ Judging by how the movie plays out, it seems he was determined to direct just about every scene in the dullest and slowest way possible.
“ This is, I think, the single worst movie ever to win an Academy Award (for the best song--"Last Dance").
“ All in all it was entertaining.
“ It is a very entertaining musical for lots more reasons than in 1978.
