Bede’s Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon #58: Can’t Stop The Music

Hey everyone! Welcome to my 58th edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon series! Once again I apologise that I didn’t post this online much sooner. I was hoping to have this online at the end of March but I got caught between both Easter and work during that time, so I didn’t have posted until now. As you already know last month here on, I posted up poll with three bad movies and I said that whichever one out of those three films had the highest votes, I would watch and live-tweet for this column. Well, the votes are in and you all have spoken. For this 58th instalment of Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon, you guys wanted me to watch and live-tweet… CAN’T STOP THE MUSIC! Was this film proof that something can be immediately dated as soon as it cinemas? Did this film deserve to be the first recipient of the Razzie award for Worst Picture? Read on and find out! Enjoy!

I know I’ve said this many times before but I’m going to say it again: is it too late for me to *not* watch this film?

Ahh, the ‘80s. Where everyone was on tonnes of cocaine.

Yes, for a film that meant to be centred around the Village People, of course Steve Guttenberg would be the film’s major character. Figures.

So. Much. Roller. Skating. Kind you this is in the first 5 minutes of the film.

Steve Guttenberg just seems out-of-place in a movie musical.

Ahhh… Why was that skateboarder using a hand glider to around? On second thought, it’s probably because of drugs. Definitely drugs.

Between this, GREASE 2, XANADU, THE APPLE and RHINESTONE, the early ‘80s was a really weird time for movie musicals.

Why type of shirt is that club owner wearing?! It looks like he’s wearing someone’s lounge room certain as a jacket.

I like how there’s just some random guy wearing a cowboy costume and doing lassoing in this nightclub scene for no apparent reason.

Okay, the film has just stop so it can be a music video for this song that Guttenberg wrote.

You know we’re almost 20 minutes into this film and we’ve basically only met one Village People member so far with Felipe the Indian. This is meant to be their film, right?

It’s funny how this film is pretty much a love letter to disco music but this film came out around the same time when disco died out.

Don’t ask me why but you know what would make this film even better? If Jeff Goldblum was in it. Why? Just ‘cause.

Clearly this TV ad that David the Construction Worker was inspired by the Satan’s Alley scenes from STAYING ALIVE.

Ahhh… Why did that old woman just hit Samantha’s ex-agent with a baguette? There was no reason for it.

I don’t know how someone can get their finger nail stuck in a phone dial but I suppose in this film, anything is possible.

You know for someone who hasn’t worked as a supermodel in years, Samantha can still afford that very large apartment.

Finally! After over 30 minutes of waiting, The Village People are finally coming together.

I don’t know how someone can get stuck in a phone booth but whatever.

Yeah, Ron looks like the kind of guy would could easily get robbed by an old lady.

“You rotten pussy!” Okay, I got to admit. That line made me laugh way more than it should’ve 🤣

You know it’s surprising that neighbours in this apartment complex don’t seem to be bothered that there’s basically a concert being performed in Samantha’s veranda.

Nice overalls, Guttenberg. Out of all the bad fashion in this film, they are clearly the worst.

Okay, I stand corrected. Samantha’s ex-record executive boyfriend’s fashion sense is truly worse.

OOOOO! Ron just got a really hot casserole on his crotch. That’s going to hurt 😬

Well, this scene with Samantha and Ron is just one big pot of comic hijinks.

Ahhh… Why does Samantha have a dentist’s chair in her apartment?

You know for a film that’s meant to be about The Village People, they’re barely in it all. This would be like a film about Elvis and he was only in it for 5 minutes.

Wait, wait, wait! Where the hell did that giant clown on stilts come from?!

I don’t know about anyone else, Glenn the Leatherman’s moustache is pretty epic.

Hmmm… This film is very subtle at all.

Has is it possible that men’s fashion in the ‘80s was way worse than any other fashion around that time? It’s bizarre.

Of course there’s a music number set at a YMCA. Why am I not surprised. It’s also not a surprise what the song they’re gonna perform in the number is going to be either too.

If I could sum up this entire YMCA music number, it would be…

“We’ve got the music that everyone is going to be dancing to next month” Yeah… That’s not going to happen.

Oh, man. That was quick. We’ve gone from one musical to another one in the span of 5 minutes.

Ahhh… Where did that telephone come from?

Okay, here we go again. Another musical number.

You know this is a pretty elaborate set up for a milk commercial but then again, this whole film is.

Yeah, Ron is a bit of a square.

Once again Mr. Waites continues to be the worst dressed person in this film by wearing some kind of weird striped burlap sack as a jumper.

I know I’ve already stated this before but it’s really annoying the Village People, who are meant to be the starts of this film, have hardly been in it. This is the definition of false advertising.

This film runs for about two hours but I guarantee that at least 20 minutes of it is dedicated to the Village People alone.

Okay, we’ve finally reached the last musical number of the film. This better be damn good or I’m seriously going to be very disappointed.

I don’t know about anyone else but I think it’s a bit odd that they’re are six members of Village People but only one of them sings lead. Everyone in the group can sing, so it would be nice if they all got to sing a solo in some of the songs.

So. Much. Glitter.

Well, that’s the end of the film. If I’m going to watch an elaborate over-the-top musical starring the Village People, they better be the damn focus of the film. Not Steve Guttenberg dammit!

I hope everyone enjoyed reading this 58th edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon! Keep a look out later in April for my 59th edition, which I could be doing on one of the following three bad films: BIO-DOME, MIAMI CONNECTION and OBSESSED. Which one will it be? Vote on the poll which will be posted on soon!
