Thank God It’s Friday, OK, true, it’s dated, and shows its age, and this movie is far from a classic. What the hell?, see it anyway!!. This movie took place at a long gone disco in Los Angeles (Osco’s), a favorite hangout of mine back when I lived in L.A. Even though the story is a bit far-fetched, its the DANCING, and MUSIC that brings this movie alive.
This is a fun movie, about a fun almost hedonistic period (remember, this was pre AIDS), when pretty much life was about just having a good time.
The one thing I remember most about the disco period is this: There seemed to be very few lines that divided, the rich, poor, black, white, latin..you name it… we all went to the same clubs, and listened to the same music. This is something you’ll see represented in this movie, this cast was about a group of people that in todays society, would hardly be seen on the same street.
The group I’d recommend seeing this film now? young people around 15 to 25, maybe give them a little more focus as to why their parents are so weird!!!
