THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY (NARRATIVE, 1978)
Like a low-rent, disco version of a Robert Altman movie, Thank God It’s Friday takes place on one Friday night at a Los Angles nightclub called The Zoo. Produced by Motown Productions the same year they released The Wiz, look for appearances by The Commodores, Donna Summer, Terri Nunn (Berlin), Debra Winger, and Jeff Goldblum and a score by the legendary Giorgio Moroder.
Thank God It’s Friday includes attempted wife-stealing, kids trying to win a disco dance contest to buy KISS tickets, drugging, instrument theft, hot tub parties, and Donna Summer performing “Last Dance,” which went on to win the Academy and Golden Globe awards for Best Original Song and the Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
