Stargard! "Which Way is Up?" -- damn, haven't heard this since it was a hit. Rose Royce got too big for their britches, so Mr Whitfield went out and put together another group for his next soundtrack.

A group now perhaps best known for their turn as Lucy & the Diamonds in Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band ...


I'd completely blocked that from memory. Of course, I've never seen the film. Is it so-bad-it's-good? or just really bad?

I'm gonna say "both."  The acting is dreadful for the most part and the plot has more holes than Amadou Diallo.  On the other hand, watching the Bee Gees beat the shit out of Aerosmith is the most OMGWTFLOL moment in cinematic history.  It's worth watching once, preferably as part of a double feature with either Can't Stop the Music or Xanadu.

I do own the sndtk and I think George Burns doing "When I'm 64" and Steve Martin doing "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" were actually great ideas.  Next time it's on TV...

I also meant to note that the song was turned into a 1999 R&B hit by a nondescript singer named Donell Jones, and its hook was interpolated into the minor charter "Thug Lovin'" by Ja Rule f/ Bobby Brown (!) in 2003.
