Can’t Stop the Music

Can’t Stop the Music

A musical extravaganza produced by the equally extravagant Allan Carr and featuring the Village People in an extremely loose retelling of their rise to fame. What was a beckoning call for the “new sound of the 80s” became its death knell—an achingly earnest time-capsule forecasting a future that never was. Sequence to sequence a lavish choreography and inventive cinematographic style suggest a film ready for reappraisal. A scandalous PG for ripe double-entendre and full-frontal nudity.
