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!

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.

Well, I just saw this movie for the first time today (May 9, 2009), and I think the acting was not that bad, approaching what was going on in Grease, as far as secondary characters and throughlines go. Scenes are acted completely with lots of action and business and in-the-moment stuff - and lots of comedic moments based on good characterization happen as a result. Each scene is acted with a situation arc that continues onward in to the next. Even Mr. Jenner does an agreeably complete performance before the script lets him down.

I think Can't Stop suffered because of the unexpected Disco backlash more than anything else. The script is awful, I agree, but production numbers are first rate and worth a look. There is far more happening in each scene here than in Olivia's Xanadu (could her male lead have been more wooden and incompentent?). One wonders what might have happened had Olivia done the movie as originally planned instead of Valerie Perrine as far as final popular appeal goes, but Ms Perrine works well with the limited material available.

Had this have been released in the summer of 1979, the reviews and pop culture position would have been far different. Disco has since resurrected itself in popular culture and on many retro FM radio formats. If anything, this movie proves that Disco WAS a worldwide gay/black/female phenomena (Disco Stu on The Simpsons notwithstanding) and was crucified at the hands of str8 male suburbia in 1980, as was a lot of music and culture: remember the massive sudden radio format shifts and resultant fashion changes that happened? The Police and Cheap Trick wouldn't have had careers.

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.

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!"
