Shifting the locale from an East Coast disco to a West Coast disco and the action from Saturday to Friday, this attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the infinitely superior SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER is little more than an excuse to showcase a number of fleetingly popular 1970s disco acts.
THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY follows a variety of dull characters through one night spent at the Zoo, a "hip" Hollywood disco, and that's about it. It is notable only as singer Donna Summer's film debut, for appearances by Jeff Goldblum and Debra Winger early in their careers, and for the presence of the
popular Commodores. Songs include "After Dark" (Simon & Sabrina Soussan), "Find My Way" (J. Melfi), "It's Serious" (Gregory Johnson, Larry Blackman), "Let's Make a Deal" (Michael Smith), "Romeo and Juliet" (Alec Costadinos), "You're the Reason I Feel Like Dancing" (H. Johnson), "From Here to
Eternity" (Giorgio Moroder, Pete Bellotte), "Dance All Night" (Willie Hutch), "Love Masterpiece" (H. Davis, J. Powell, A. Posey), "I'm Here Again" (B. Sutton, M. Sutton, Kathy Wakefield), "Disco Queen" (Paul Jabara), "Trapped in a Stairway" (Jabara, Bob Esty), "Thank God It's Friday," "You Are the
Most Precious Thing in My Life" (Costadinos), "I Wanna Dance" (P. Bellote), "Meco's Theme" (Harold Wheeler), "Floyd's Theme" (D. St. Nicklaus), "Down to Lovetown" (Don Daniels, Michael Sutton, Kathy Wakefield), "Lovin', Livin', and Givin," "Do You Want the Real Thing?" and "You Can Always Tell a
Lady by the Company She Keeps" (Esty, D.C. LaRue), and the Oscar winning tune "Last Dance" (Jabara).
