Can't Stop the Music

Overview

The Village People sing their hearts out in the camp classic Can't Stop the Music. Anchor Bay has done an admirable job on this 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. While the image often looks a tad aged and worn, overall the color schemes (of which there are many) and the black levels all appear even and solid. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 EX Surround and Dolby Digital 6.1 ES Matrixed, both in English. Both of these soundtracks are surprisingly full and lush with some excellent use of ...

Overview

The Village People sing their hearts out in the camp classic Can't Stop the Music. Anchor Bay has done an admirable job on this 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. While the image often looks a tad aged and worn, overall the color schemes (of which there are many) and the black levels all appear even and solid. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 EX Surround and Dolby Digital 6.1 ES Matrixed, both in English. Both of these soundtracks are surprisingly full and lush with some excellent use of directional sound (especially during the musical numbers). These mixes are easily better than the film required them to be. Also included on this disc are English closed captions. The extra features on Can't Stop the Music are pretty scarce -- the only supplements included on this disc are some production notes about the history of the Village People, a still gallery with about 50 or so images from the film, and a funny anamorphic theatrical trailer for the film.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
A film that managed to be dated even before it was released, Can't Stop the Music is one of those movies that is so unbelievable that it's entertaining -- in small doses. Created (too late) to cash in on the late 1970's disco craze, Music is directed with no sense of style, tension, pacing or musicality by Nancy Walker. There IS a unique look to the film -- and audiences can be thankful that it is the only look of its kind. Although the cast tries hard, nobody is able to overcome the limitations of the material. Steve Guttenberg gives a truly inept performance, one that seems to embarrass him from the first moments, when we see him attempting to roller skate down the city streets while at the same time groovin' to the music -- and doing neither one convincingly. Even worse is Bruce Jenner, whose outsized, bug-eyed reactions quickly become wearying. Village People fans will like the songs, and the staging of most numbers cannot fail to make an impression. ("Highlights" include "YMCA's" speedo-clad Busby Berkeley take-offs and "Macho Man's" flaming baton sequence.) A true mess of a movie, Music is still so much a one-of-a-kind experience that it should be seen -- once.
