Can’t Stop the Music is the first movie to win a Razzie award for Worst Picture. What better place to start an award show for the worst in film then the 80’s. Back in the late 70’s jukebox musicals were a big deal and disco was still popular. However, the same can’t be said for the 80’s. The start of a decade usually means the death of a trend and Can’t Stop the Music was the final straw. They had the bright idea of making an entire movie about the musical group Village People. Even though they can’t act to save their lives. The same can be said for Steve Guttenberg (this did not make him a star) and manly man Bruce Jenner. Can’t Stop the Music is also over 2 hours long and filled with pointless stuff. They actually spend nearly an hour just looking for group members. It’s like watching a series of music videos strung together with a paper thin plot. I do like Village People music. I don’t think there’s a single person who doesn’t know the Y.M.C.A. dance, but did they really need a movie. Can’t Stop the music is just one big glittery mess.
