After all these years, I finally got so desperate for an “X” that I sat through this stinker. This is a genuinely embarrassing experience for all involved, even Olivia Newton-John. Particularly sad is that Gene Kelly – for reasons known only to himself – decided to appear in this. They’re going for some kind of early-80s goofiness, creating an awful blend of disco (some time after that ship had already sailed) and 7-Up ad graphics. On the other hand, I can see pretty clearly how this would end up on the Broadway stage and the Logo network. See if desperate
