    Too often, the film is more like a soundtrack with visuals than a well constructed, fully developed motion picture. show more

    Amusing and holds interest largely thanks to its re-creation of a glitzy, flamboyant era, not to mention its soundtrack of disco songs that sound a lot better today than 20 years ago. show more

    Offers nothing new, and a lot less. It's a hollow shell of a film, rife with plot twists that go nowhere. show more
