Product Description

From the Back Cover

New York City DJ/songwriter Jack Morell (Steve Guttenberg) needs just one big b reak to get his music heard and land a record deal. But with the help of his retired super model roommate (Valerie Perrine) and an uptight tax attorney (Olympic champion Bruce Jenne r), they bring together six singing macho men from the Greenwich Village scene for an outr ageously 80s adventure of fun, fantasy and disco fever. Welcome to the not quite straight story of the creation of the Village People in their one and only musical extravaganza. This is Cant' Stop the Music!
Reviled by critics but beloved by fans, Cant' Stop the Music is still a jaw-droppin g experience for everyone. Tammy Grimes, Marilyn Sokol and June Havoc co-star in this not orious camp classic produced by Allan Carr (Grease) that features unforgettable dia logue, unimaginable performances, unbelievable production numbers of hits like "Y.M.C.A." and so much more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, clean campy fun. Feb. 21 2003
Format:DVD
I dinstictly remember when 'Can't Stop The Music' was released in Australia. The popularity of The Village People and disco music in general was at an all time, so it's not surprising that the movie reached number 1 at the Australian box office. I was eight years old, and the Village People were my favourite group. When I got to see my heros on the big screen I was elated - I remember walking out of the cinema feeling so happy and wonderful for days after. I still have my copy of the soundtrack record all these years later....
So it is with saddness that now, rediscovering the Village People once again through CD and DVD, that I read such bad reviews and comments about this movie. Is it a 'good' movie?? Depends on how you define 'good' - sure the movie has hamy acting, a paper thin plot, many continuity errors and a real sense of fantasy about it, but it also has the wonderful theme that dreams can come true. Can't Stop The Music also captures a period in history (1980) where there was still a shred of innocence left before the emotional and financial corruption of the 80's really came into prominence.
The movie will certainly appeal to many gay men such as myself. There are many subtle (and some not so subtle) gay references that Can't Stop The Music could be called the ultimate gay musical! I can certainly relate the overall campiness of the movie, as well as look longingly towards an era where body hair was actually considering desirable on a gay man!
For such a commercially unsuccessful movie, it is wonderful to see that effort has been made to release Can't Stop The Music on a well packaged DVD. Firstly we get a remixed audio soundtrack to take full advantage of home theatre systems, a high quality, clean widescreen transfer and good packaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for pure cheese at the best! April 2 2003
By Peter
Format:DVD
The five-star rating is not because it's a good movie. If it wasn't for The Village People and the music in the movie i'd rate it as a big zero stars. Don't watch this movie for any other reason than to watch the great musical numbers and to see The Village People. The acting is so embarrassing to watch, especially Steve Gutenburg's performance. I'm surprised he even got any further movie roles after he did this movie. Bruce Jenner was just a supreme dork in this movie, and although he was hot for Valerie Perine in the movie, i'm sure that he also lusted after some of the guys in The Village People too. This movie is filled with fun cheese and tons of gay references. Was there anyone who actually believed The Village People were straight? The funniest thing about this movie is how the producers try very hard to make them all appear to be straight. Too funny! If you love disco or The Village People, get this movie and skip right to the musical parts. They are a real treat to watch. The rest of the movie is just too stupid to bother sitting through, unless maybe you've had a few drinks or a toke first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch it - and be hooked! Nov. 23 2001
By "nunga"
Format:DVD
I was 10 when I first saw this movie and I loved it! I'm now 30 and I still love it!! The Village People were amazing and this movie is FULL of their hits! There are plenty of gay under-tones - how did we not notice them all those years ago!? If you're looking for a true musical - this is it! Huge disco hits throughout the movie that still get played in clubs today! Buy it - if only to see the scene with "Operator! My finger is stuck!"

4.0 out of 5 stars An unstoppable piece of high camp April 15 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
OK, fans, here it is at last. In pristine Panavision and 6.1 DTS stereo, the most jaw-droppingly campy movie musical in memory comes to DVD. If you've never seen this piece of work, you haven't any idea how howlingly bad it really is; if you know the film, you'll be happy to see it presented as originally shown. The highlights (or lowlights, depending upon how you view it) are endless: the tacky production design, the really bad script, the incredibly unsubtle acting, the virtually talentless Village People, the disco production numbers that look to have been assembled and shot so hastily that you find yourself thinking "did they have ANY idea of what they were doing?" Bruce Jenner, why? Valerie Perrine and Steve Guttenberg, why? Tammy Grimes and Baby June Havoc, oh why? The movie worms its way into your heart however, because it really is clueless. And it brashly goes straight ahead at full velocity in its awfulness. It's not "Lost Horizon" with that pseudo-hip score or the awful weight of immortality pushing it down; it's not "Mame" with an ancient Lucille Ball hitting notes in the key of K flat and conducting the chorus as if she were some sort of Pied Piper; and it's not "Xanadu" - it's closest kin - because Gene Kelly and Olivia Newton-John have actual musical talent. "Can't Stop the Music" exists in a rarified strata of its own - both spectacularly bad and unquenchably entertaining - and we're very glad to have it on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars OH, YEAH....SO BAD, IT'S *GOOD*! Jan. 2 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
OK, first of all, completely ignore Leonard Maltin's taking-himself-far-too-seriously review of this film. Like a pug that's so ugly it's cute, this movie, like so many others have pointed out, is deliciously bad -- horrible acting; cheesy special effects (no doubt state-o'-the-art way back then); riduclous plot; oh, and did I mention *horrible acting*? -- so bad it's wonderful. Like a horrible auto accident you can't tear your eyes away from, this movie is so dreadful that you can't stop watching, if only to see how badly any of the actors (except the ever-perky/pro Valerie Perrine) will deliver their lines. The musical numbers are a delight, though, and it's obvious THAT is where most of them money went. Poor, poor Nancy Walker (that's right, Rhoda's mom) directed this and she'll be remembered for this if nothing else. You haved to wonder WHAT she was thinking, though....
You don't have to be gay or into disco to enjoy this: just sit back and let the horror (and the fun) wash over you. It's THE perfect movie for a group of people to watch and groan together.

BUY THIS MOVIE!

The producers of this megaflop have been trying to recoup their losses ever since, by periodically repackaging it and trying to promote it as a "camp classic". Read more

There are some movies so horrible that you watch them, not out of guilty pleasure but rather with the same interest as rubbernecking a 20 car pile-up on a major highway. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars This movie sent the Village People "straight" over the cliff
Yes, it's a fun movie, but totally dispelled Village People's "gay underground" appeal and the group's popularity was never the same. Read more
