Yup, I got into Studio 54 as an underage teenager just before Schrager and Rubell got busted. The direction and cinematography make this film a classic --- as close to being there as being chosen by doorman Mark Benecke out of a crowd a thousand deep. $15 cover charge in 1979! And you'd walk through the hall of mirrors like Ryan Phillippe, pass the coat check, and come upon that row of black doors, a gateway to the most fantastic party in your wildest dreams. I finally figured out one reason for the club's success -- with the undeclared cash income, the owners threw the most extravagant parties of all time, night after night. This film gives an inkling, an idea of the place, for history, though the real Studio 54 was neither as freakish or out of control as the film depicts. When you entered the place, you felt like you'd gone to heaven. After a while, it felt like home.

Remember Studio 54? And doesn't it seem a long time ago?

This was a dance club like no other in the late 1970s. The patrons were either celebrities or those chosen at the front door because they had the "look" of the beautiful people. Inside was a fantasy of dancing and drugs, all lit by strobe lighting. And, as it had formerly been a theater, there was a even balcony for those almost private moments of brief romantic encounters. The waiters and bartenders were all gorgeous young men and wore nothing but shorts and a bow tie. This is a story of one of these guys.

Ryan Phillips is cast in the role of Shane O'Shea, a 19 year old from New Jersey who yearns for a star-studded life. He's chosen at the door and is big eyed with wonder and desire. Eventually, he becomes a waiter and later is promoted to bartender. There are a lot of women. And there is a lot of money. He even gets his picture in a magazine. Everything comes easy for him but he really is interested in a New Jersey girl who's a rising soap opera star.

The best role in the film goes to Mike Myers, who plays the legendary Steve Rubell who made it all happen. He's a strange bird with an eccentric personality and he does a lot of drugs. The money rolls in and he is in trouble with the IRS. But he's so puffed up with his own importance that he even brags about it on TV. Eventually, he's arrested and the party ends. But before it does, the filmgoers are treated to a small view of what it was back then.

I found the story silly, but I loved the nostalgia. Here was the music and the lights and the feeling of decadence that characterized a time that no longer exists. I lived through that time period. I remember. And so for those who are curious and those who want to step into the past for an hour and a half, I recommended this 1998 film.

Sex, drugs, and disco. All the camp, but also the pathos of the era, especially as we look back at what we now know what was to follow.

The original release of 54 was a strange fish: part salmon swimming hopelessly upstream, part peacock. And just as a fish and a bird might fall in love, it had no where to live. The film titillated, but it failed to commit. The story seemed to drift off, earning razzies for all involved, despite some good, even some excellent performances. Now we know it was ruthlessly cut up by film editors trying to make it acceptable to the mall theater crowd.

Here it is in all of it's original glory. A unfiltered lens on a time and a place with the famous and hangers on who created it.

I have wanted to see this movie for quite a while. As a New Yorker, I am interested in knowing what went on inside Studio 54, and so I thought I might learn more by watching the film.
Unfortunately the film is mainly focused on the character and narrator (played by Ryan Phillipe) than on the club itself. Yes, it shows the viewer some of the things that went on in the club, but not enough.
The acting is excellent though. Ryan Phillipe is much more than just another Hollywood pretty face; he's a good actor. But the real treat in this film is Mike Myers; his portrayal of the club's ringmaster is quite impressive. Various celebrities appear as themselves, which makes it a bit interesting. But overall, the movie is a big disappointment. I do not recommend it.

What a sad depiction of the verve that existed at the ever notorious and hedonistic nightclub residing in the middle of New York's party scene with crowds of day-trippers, opportunists and native New Yorkers dying to get past the infamous velvet ropes to make it on the list of ingredients for Steve Rubell's social "salad bowl". Instead of taking a detailed look at the club's corrupt commerce from a legal perspective, it focuses on a simplistic schmoe who lives across the tracks in New Jersey, just another speculator with a febrile desire to enter the illustrious doors of the scandalous hotspot. Ryan Phillippe as the meek-minded Shane O'Shea is mediocre at best, consistently flaunting his virile physique and golden skin, his Greek visage a perfect comparison to a depiction a one-night stand named Billie Auster (Sela Ward in a breathlessly short role) bequeaths him.
Salma Hayek and Breckin Meyer as the utterly piteous and star-struck couple Anita and Greg are terribly tacky characters and hopelessly naive. Hayek's only worthy showcase is the skimpy spandex she dawns when she finally gets her fantasy spot in one of the club's various stage shows. The only redeeming performance in this whole movie is Mike Meyers as the seedy Steve Rubell, the man behind the magic and the instigator of Studio 54. He exhibits the drunken queerness convincingly, and I was almost repelled by how well he infused himself with the character to beget Steve's bizarre and almost creepy aura.
Where this film really falls short is cheapening the audience on the history of the kitsch club, excluding the names of its renowned employees and promoters. A good example of a missing link is the more notable omission of Ian Schrager, Rubell's right-hand man and business partner.
