XANADU is one of the most critically and commercially panned films in
Hollywood history, a 'Nouveau Art' musical with Art Deco themes, a
conceived animated interlude, and performances of such widely varying
caliber that a viewer might wonder if the actors were all reading from
same script! But all that being said, I would like to offer a minority
opinion, and say that I didn't find the film THAT terrible, and there are
some aspects of it I actually enjoyed...
First and foremost, it offers the legendary Gene Kelly, in his last
as charming and wonderful as ever. As retired musician/businessman Danny
McGuire, Kelly has the film's best moments, including a 'classic'
song-and-dance scene with Olivia Newton-John and some silly but endearing
'post-disco' routines with the talented young dancers of the cast
future CONAN star Sandahl Bergman). Seeing him on roller-skates again,
leading everyone around the club he builds, to the music of the Electric
Light Orchestra, makes one realize just how irreplaceable he is. Kelly
do it all, and with style!
The premise of the film, of a Muse coming from Olympus to inspire an
is far-fetched, but had been done on film several times in the past (ONE
TOUCH OF VENUS, with Ava Gardner and Robert Walker, and DOWN TO EARTH,
Rita Hayworth, are the examples most often cited), and while Olivia
Newton-John is oddly cast in the role, she tackles it gamely, with a
and a wink, and isn't THAT bad. On the other hand, Michael Beck,
as the gang leader in cliched but powerful THE WARRIORS, is totally
as the artist she falls in love with. An actor with limited range and no
singing or dancing talent, Beck lacks the charisma to pull off the role
wonders why British pop star Cliff Richard, who voices Beck's animated
with Newton-John, 'Suddenly', wasn't utilized to play the
While the film often veers off in bizarre directions, the 'Battle of the
Bands' scene between popular 80s rockers, the Tubes, and a 'Tommy
Dorsey/WWII'-style orchestra (as Beck and Kelly envision what the 'look'
'sound' of their club, XANADU, should be), actually works, and is fun to
watch. The entire score, by Barry De Vorzon and John Farrar, and Jeff
(with ELO) is terrific (and made the soundtrack album a hit).
Sure, the ending is hokey, but it was also the same ending of ONE TOUCH
VENUS and DOWN TO EARTH, so XANADU can't be totally faulted!
All in all, XANADU isn't the WORST film ever made, and if you give it a
chance, you might find it a guilty pleasure!
