Discoteca DE Horrible!
6 November 2009 | by legwarmers1980See all my reviews

Trashy 1980 Saturday Night Fever ripoff made in beautiful Argentina, South America. Typical story of romance, sex, drugs, and Disco. Lots of hot chicks and hot guys. Open shirts with long gold chains, flared pants, multi-color shirts, disco dresses, disco music, and more romance. Acting is over the top. The dance numbers are good, after all, Argentina is famous for the Tango. Lots of nice eye candy, but the script is horrible, the acting is just as bad, and the texture of the color is just as worst. A few American actors seem to be in this film under Hispanic names. Looks like their Spanish was dubbed in. Sort of funny to see that. Forget Disco of Love and rent Saturday Night Fever.
