Product Description

Donna Summer stars in this disco-musical from 1978. Following a dance contest at the local disco, THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY features early performances by Debra Winger and Jeff Goldblum. Musical support comes from Summer (singing "Last Dance") and the Commodores.

An unusual collision of the innocent and the decadent, Thank God It's Friday captures the disco era in all of its naive glory. Multiple storylines twine through an enormous nightclub: Two underage girls (one of them Terri Nunn, future lead singer of new wave rock group Berlin) desperately want in so they can enter a dance contest; the club's owner (Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park, The Fly) makes a bet with his dj that he can woo a beautiful married woman--whose uptight husband ends up taking drugs and loosening up more than he ever expected; a klutzy girl (Debra Winger, Terms of Endearment, in one of her first film roles) gets ditched by her best friend and flounders around the club looking for love; and an aspiring singer (Donna Summer, whose "Last Dance" won the Academy Award for Best Song) pleads with the dj to let her sing. Though not as richly written as American Graffiti or Dazed and Confused, Thank God It's Friday aspires to a similar meandering mix of melancholy and hope. It ends up being a pretty honest snapshot of the disco era: Sweet, shallow, and not as campy as you'd expect. For all the sex and drugs, in the end it's all about getting your groove on. As one character puts it, "Dancing--Everything else is bulls**t!" --Bret Fetzer
