The trope namer herself said this movie cannot be that trope, since the whole movie is like that.
What has Olivia Newton-John, Creator/GeneKelly, that guy from ''Film/TheWarriors'', roller skates, lots of glowing blue people, quasi-disco music, and a continuous string of {{Big Lipped Alligator Moment}}s?

* SharedUniverse: Implied. Prior to this film, Gene Kelly also played a character named "Danny [=McGuire=]" in the film ''Film/CoverGirl'' (no relation to the cosmetics company). This film is later referenced in ''Down To Earth'' (sequel to Here Comes Mr. Jordan), which features Rita Hayworth (who was also in ''Film/{{CoverGirl}})'' as "Terpsichore", but uses the name "Kitty" in her Earth form. It should be mentioned that all three of the films in question were released by Columbia, while this movie was released by Universal.

* JukeboxMusical: The stage musical version is essentially one for the ElectricLightOrchestra, whose leader, JeffLynne, produced most of the music for the film and the stage version adds "Evil Woman" and "Strange Magic."
