Can't Stop the Music is a musical comedy film directed by Nancy Walker in 1980. It is a pseudo-biography of disco's Village People which bears only a vague resemblance to the actual story of the group's formation. It was produced by ITC Entertainment.
The film's producer, Allan Carr, was coming off a massive worldwide hit with the pop musical Grease when shooting began in 1979 at the height of the disco craze. Walker shot at MGM studios in Hollywood with location shooting in New York City and San Francisco. By the time of its release, however, the disco genre had not only peaked in the United States but was experiencing a backlash there. The film received scathing reviews and audiences stayed away. The soundtrack album was more well-received, actually going top 10 in the UK, and the film actually did well in Australia. At a cost estimated at $20,000,000, the film was a colossal failure financially, bringing in only a tenth of that in gross revenue.  Compared to Carr's next film, also considered a failure, Grease 2 brought in more than twice as much on its opening weekend as Can't Stop The Music grossed in its entire run, that sequel nearly making back its investment in the U.S. gross alone.  In another instance of bad timing, Can't Stop the Music coincided with the first annual Golden Raspberry Awards, and—nominated in every category except "Supporting Actor"—became the recipient of its first "Worst Picture" and "Worst Screenplay" awards.
Since its initial failure, however, Can't Stop the Music has gained something of a cult status as a camp film. Released on DVD in 2002, the film has been screened at gay film festivals, including the 2008 London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.
