"...I agree with my colleague...luscious Joan Collins at her very acrid and mean-spirited 'best'...a true thespian regardless and easy on the eyes...butta-bing...seriously, folks...good entertainment from [the late 1970s]...despite the salacious/manner in which all the 'beautiful people' live, Joanie baby, gets her just rewards at the finis...I will give the Devil his due...if you love your sweet-cake, then Joanie is that dessert for you....mmm/mmm good...the price is reasonable and the DVD is a very crisp/clear transfer...I wonder what dear Joanie is up to right now??...I wonder??....SGGT CHRIS SARNO-USMC FMF"

"I first saw this film in the 80,s and at that time Miss Collins was a hot item.I then saw the dvd on amazon and had to have it.It is like this to see Joan Collins in something else besides dynasty and see her get down and dirty is priceless."
So bad . . . so awesomely bad. Just completely trashy.

"Who could possibly care if Fontaine's "trendy disco" goes in the toilet? Or how she'll make ends meet until the next mark comes along? Or why everyone seems to be having such a bad time making this movie? Then there's the bizarre appearance of John Ratzenberger (Cliff from "Cheers") to contend with, also. I've never seen anything that made being rich look so stupid and so silly. Oh, and if you're wondering how to save an ailing discoteque, just hire some topless jive dancers in space make-up and project fake fire onto the wall--it'll do wonders for business. I guess if you're a fan, Ms. Collins is doing what she does best here. But the movie is just horrific, of course. I stared in awe, alternately rolling my eyes, laughing at how unintentionally funny it is, and marvelling at the sheer camp.

And that's the reason to watch.

Before our eyes, we see the last days of disco and the failure of the sexual revolution. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a document of a fascinating moment in social history. The gloss and artificiality of 1979 are painstaking. From the countless would-be pornographic sex scenes, scored to whacka-chicka music (and don't miss the dreadful group party scene toward the end), to the endlessly chromed and mirrored interiors, to the soft focus photography which connotes slick amorality--like a late-'70s Cadillac or Lincoln, it's an overwhelming clunker of glitz, glamour, and gratuity.

Soon enough, 1980 would come, bringing with it AIDS, Thatcher and Reagan, and smaller, more fuel-efficient cars. It's a fitting end that Fontaine's cameo is engulfed in the flames of her own disco inferno at the closing credits--the party is over, the punchbowl's been taken away, and the hangover will be to hell to pay."
This movie is too cool.
