Xanadu

By Robert Greenwald

A wimpy remake of an already anemic movie (the 1947 Rita Hayworth vehicle Down to Earth), this glitzy musical from 1980 improbably stars Olivia Newton-John as a heavenly muse sent here to help open a roller-derby disco. Gene Kelly is mixed up in this well-meaning but goofy effort to fuse nostalgia with late-Super70s glitter-ball trendiness, and he looks just plain silly. Directed by Robert Greenwald, the film doesn't even work as decent kitsch.

"Xanadu is one of those movies that, as cheesy as it is, has really interesting visuals and a retro-fantasy soundtrack. I choose this film as one of my guilty pleasures in life along with "Grease 2"."
