“Hey, hey, L.A., it’s a brand new day.”
With that, we’re off in this very funny day-in-the-life look at the merry band of misfits who work (sometimes) while the action, and music, are at a constant hum.
Written by Joel Schumacher, and featuring everyone from Richard Pryor to George Carlin to Danny DeVito in cameos, the film is maybe best remembered for its disco-heavy soundtrack.
Featuring three Top Ten singles, including the title track hitting #1, it scored a Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack Album.
But don’t sleep on the film supporting the music — it’s a winner in its own right.
