I loved this movie as a young teenager growing up in the midwest and when I moved to Los Angeles for college in 1980, I made it a point to go dancing at the famous disco called "Oskos" where the movie T.G.I.F. was filmed! Those were the best days, and it was fun to go back in time and see how innocent Los Angeles was...with less traffic, and cars that were actually made out of steel that didn't buckle, hence (the dance scene with Chick Vennera outside of the disco on top of the cars). It was also fun to see a few rising stars before they became mega stars - Jeff Glodblum and Debra Winger. Also seeing two stars from the film Car Wash, Mr. Ray Vitte, who played the DJ Bobby Speed and Mr. Otis Day who played Floyd. But the biggest draw of this film was seeing Ms. Donna Summer! I grew up on her music and loved her performances throughout her life. I actually had a chance to meet both her and her husband at the Hollywood bookstore "Book Soup" for her book signing where the line was around the block! Fortunately, some guys let me cheat in line and I moved from the end of the line to the very front of the line and got her autograph! I was so sad when she passed away, but glad to have had the chance to enjoy her music while she was alive. Finally I'd like to say that this film although a bit corny, is super fun to watch and defines the early 1980's for those who are curious to see why we dressed in polyester and teased our hair so big!! Thank you for allowing me to share!
