Flashback: Steve Guttenberg in Can't Stop the Music


If Steve Guttenberg can't stop the music, it must truly be unstoppable. In possibly the best cinematic masterpiece I've stumbled upon since the film based on Charlie Sheen's poetry, Can't Stop the Music is the pseudo-autobiographical rags to riches tale of the Village People, starring the real-life band members and Guttenberg as Jack.

According to the plot description at SteveGuttenberg.com:

Samantha, a former model, comes to the aid of her roommate Jack, an aspiring songwriter who's vowed to stay celibate until he achieves musical success. Samantha invites a group of arty friends from Greenwich Village to a party — an Indian chief, a construction worker, a cowboy, a policeman, a soldier, and a couple of leather boys! Then, they all get together and stage such a wild, campy, "dance feverish" show using Jack's songs, that his career skyrockets!

Now doesn't that sound like fun? If only we could all have an Indian chief among our "arty friends." They aren't kidding with that tagline: "Like nothing you've ever seen before!" Have any of you seen this masterpiece?
