* SoBadItsGood: Despite the film's many flaws, it manages to be entertaining. As a double-bill alongside ''Can't Stop the Music'' (another disco musical that toplined the VillagePeople), it inspired John Wilson to create the Golden Raspberry Awards. Perhaps a telling sign of the film's quality is the fact that he admits to re-watching it once in a while.

* DeaderThanDisco: A literal example: the film was conceived and produced at the height of disco's popularity, but had the misfortune to come out at the ''exact'' time it's popularity nosedived. Critics destroyed it, and the general public was so sick of disco that they didn't bother.

* BreakawayPopHit: "Magic", "Suddenly", and the title song.
** "Magic" was a hit to the point where most people who have heard it have no idea it was originally from a motion picture soundtrack.

* ILikedItBetterWhenItSucked: The stage version. Non-fans of the movie embraced it, while fans felt that [[DontExplainTheJoke all it did was explain the (unintentional) joke]].

** Of course, the fact that Wilson named "Suspended in Time" the Worst Song of the Year is laughable.
