* 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, except for those ten-year-old Tropers who didn't care.

* 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.

* 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.
