The stars shine bright when Mike Myers (Austin Powers), Neve Campbell (Scream), and Salma Hayek (Ugly Betty) give a provocative peek behind the glimmering lights of the hottest nightclub ever! When the mastermind behind New York's infamous Studio 54 disco plucks young Shane (Ryan Phillippe, The Lincoln Lawyer) from the sea of faces clamoring to get inside his club, Shane not only gets his foot in the door, but lands a coveted job behind the bar - and a front-row ticket to the most legendary party on the planet! Featuring the hottest music of the disco era and an even hotter list of stars, this is 54!!

4.0 out of 5 stars I WAS THERE March 4, 2005
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Coulda Been, But Wasn't.... July 6, 2000
Format:DVD
Okay, first of all, to Masonx, Ryan Phillippe is not Canadian. Back to the point....This movie had tons of potential. I was really looking foward to seeing it. Having been born in 1978 I did most of my growing in the 90's so there was never a time that sex was safe and drugs were not addictive. I find that period of freedom fascinating and 54 was where the party was. I'm sure this movie was going somewhere very interesting before the studio got a hold of it. Laced with sex, drugs, homosexuality and energy, as that time was, the original cut was probably very good. But, alas, someone got nervous and added these horrible scenes, and cut the heart out of the film. They beefed up Neve's role, which was bad, beefed up Mike Myers role, which he played well but it just didn't work, and just plain messed up the movie. You can tell all the stuff that was reshot by Ryan's afro wig which looks nothing like real hair. Watch the original trailer to see things that look good but never made the final cut. I'm sad to see the DVD has no deleted scenes, and no Director's Cut edition, I would like to see the real film. And until these become available, don't waste your time. Good Idea...Bad Execution.

2.0 out of 5 stars Should have been the year not the club... June 4, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I admit I rented this movie on the expectation that it was not as awful as the critics had said. Sad to say they were right. For all its glam and flash and glitter and pretty bodies alas at the end of it all there isnt much of a story. New Jersey kid makes it big as a bartender in one of NYC's most exclusive clubs and lo and behold does find all his xmas's at once. The drugs the sex the debauchery, the loss of one's self esteem etc, sound all too familiar. Compared to "The Last Days of Disco" released at the same time no clues as to which is the better movie. Canadian actor Ryan Phillipe for all his studly good looks and fake accent makes a worthy effort but sadly still comes up as a weak lead.
The only redeeming feature is Mike Myers portrayal as Steve Rubell, the twisted, manipulative and machiavellian club owner who has no redeeming features whatever. He is the worst of his genre and makes no apologies for it. His boast that "54" is the only place where royalty and commoner can dance without social barriers rings untrue when he pointedly makes it so hard for the common people to get in. Exclusivity is everything. Dorky people need not apply. The legendary Steve has since passed on to that great disco in the sky and for all his reputation will not be missed. And neither will this movie.

Fun to watch if you're into nightlife. Many say that it's not accurate, but after seeing the documentary on Studio 54, it seemed like it was pretty well portrayed.
