Can't Stop the Music
The Village People in their film debut. You'll want to punch the Indian guy whenever he makes "that sound". Oh, and "leather men don't cry."
With Nancy Walker as the tiny old woman.
This inaugural Razzie winner could be a good target for a biting commentary track.
I absolutely love this movie, it is a glorious piece of 1000% earnest cheese and sequins, and so totally devoted to its conceit that Village People are "The Sound of the 80s!"
The glittery disco music video for milk. The extended locker room scene of the YMCA music number, the comedy of errors as the female lead's drunken agent keeps trying to crash the party. Pre-transition Caitlyn Jenner as the 'I'm a straight guy, who are all these weirdos?' male lead.
And enjoy main-character, Steve Gutenberg, who I can only presume was on a tailored ******** of uppers and stimulants through the entire shooting process, because that level of energy for this stuff is not natural.
"My name's James and Flames my Game!"

This movie was the partial inspiration for the Golden Raspberry Awards, and was the very first recipient of Worst Picture. How has it not been riffed already?!
As for people I want to punch, I'd much rather hit Steve Gutenberg, who plays Jack Morell, the smug, obnoxious DJ who discovers the Village People and is constantly reminded that he's wonderful and talented like the Mary Sue he is.
With Caitlin Jenner making the news, this is the perfect time time to revisit a movie that gives The Apple stiff competition for worse musual ever.

Are Mike, Kevin and Bill actually *brave* enough to touch this one now...?
With BRUCE "Caitlyn" JENNER in it as the male lead. 'Nuff Said.
