4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 13 Feb 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Can't stop the music takes you back to the moment where glitzy costumes and wedge heels were the norm. The songs of the Village People are timeless and have you humming the tunes for days afterwards. A harmless film that everyone can enjoy and I'm pleased to have it in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Times 19 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
I have to say that this DVD provides the same amount of joy as when it first came out on video. It is fantastic, total escapism and totally tacky (in the nicest possible way) So much so that it is compulsive viewing. If you are ever feeling down in the dumps then this is the film for you. It has worked for me for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of a kind 26 July 2012
By schumann_bg TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a film that calls for a show of solidarity, I think - it is totally amazing, as everyone says - most people say - and has an irrepressible sense of fun and naivety. There is actually no mention of gayness, which is perhaps a pity, but then again it looms so large in terms of the outfits and general tone that its omission seems like a huge joke. It's a film that couldn't possibly be made now (in fact it bombed then), it has so much affection and the characters are all so innocent - and all the members of the band are so delightful, you just end up loving every one of them and wondering whether your flat wouldn't be enhanced by a nice retro disco ball ...

3.0 out of 5 stars The Disco Era 9 July 2011
By Grahame
Format:DVD
Can't Stop the Music is a 1980 American musical comedy film, the film was shot at MGM studios in Hollywood with location shooting in New York City and San Francisco and shooting began in May 1979 at the height of the disco craze.

Unfortunately by the time the film was released in 1980 the disco genre was experiencing a backlash. However, the soundtrack album from the film was better received, going top 10 in the UK.

Since its initial failure Can't Stop the Music has gained something of a cult status internationally as a camp film. The story sees songwriter Jack Morell (Guttenberg) getting a break as a DJ at a local disco Saddle Tramps. His room-mate Samantha Simpson (Perrine), a retired supermodel agrees to use her connections to get him a record deal. Samantha decides Jack's vocals won't do, and the story revolves around Samantha recruiting individuals that come together as the 'Village People' and getting them a record deal.

The plot is thin, but the musical numbers are lavish and entertaining. Was the disco scene really like this!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nobody can stop the music! 5 May 2010
Format:DVD
My grandad had this on video & I used to love watching this film when I was a kid.
Great cheesy songs, briliant 70s costumes & may I confess to having a slight crush on the cowboy? Hey I was only young!

I can't wait for it to come out on dvd!!
