Week 44 of Revisiting 1980
Release Date : November 21, 1980
First 10 minutes: this is going to be painful.
First 25 minutes: This is so bad, are the producers thinking this is seriously good ?
So, this takes place in the mythical world of 1994 where Disco never died. It’s dystopian, but compared to the dystopian world we live in, this may be more fun. Can folkmusic be redeemed against the glitter and satin ?
45 minutes: fairly amused, or is it bemused.
1 hour in: why isn’t this more of a cult classic ? It is entertaining . The songs are bad, the dancing overdone,
The last 25 minutes:
Hippies, Godspell vibe, without actually being good. The sappy ending it deserves. Wondering why no one has bought this, re did it and done something off Broadway with it.
The Cannon Group as beguiling as ever.
