* 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.
* CriticalResearchFailure: Zeus and Hera claim not to know about human emotions. Y'know, the poster gods for AnythingThatMoves and ClingyJealousGirl.
* CultClassic: This had the bad fortune to be made while disco was dying, and flopped as a result. These days it's a cult film with women [[VindicatedByCable who watched it on cable as young girls]] and gay men who liked the massive amount of camp, music, and the hopeful message in the movie.
* EarWorm: Horrifyingly.
* FanYay
* PeripheryDemographic
* 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.
** Of course, the fact that Wilson named "Suspended in Time" the Worst Song of the Year is laughable.
* SpecialEffectFailure
* VindicatedByCable: The movie was trashed by critics but it picked up its core audience on pay cable channels.
** Especially in the early 80s era, when HBO (which until 1981 didn't even operate on a 24-hour schedule) had a very small library of movies to air.
