We DVR'd this on Cinemax HD recently and watched it tonight--- a really great, really fun movie. I wish I had caught it in the theater... but in my own living room in HD is the next best thing. Highly recommended.

For those of you who might be looking to complete the soundtrack with original artists (since I hear there's a lot of 2nd-rate covers on the official soundtrack), here's a list of songs from the film --- followed by the performer, as transcribed from the credits:

  • Flashlight --- Parliament
  • Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll --- Vaughan Mason & Crew
  • Lovely Day --- Bill Withers
  • I Wanna Know Your Name --- Keith Sweat
  • Emotion --- Samantha Sang (original by Bee Gees)
  • Can You Feel the Force --- The Real Thing
  • Love to Love You Baby --- Donna Summer
  • Superman Lover --- Johnny "Guitar" Watson
  • I'll Keep Lovin' You --- Carl Douglas
  • Barracuda --- Heart
  • Rock the Boat --- Hues Corporation
  • Baby Hold On --- Eddie Money
  • On the Beautiful Blue Danube --- The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (comp. by Johann Strauss)
  • Kung Fu Fighting --- Carl Douglas
  • I'm Your Boogie Man --- K.C. & the Sunshine Band
  • Pure Gold --- Earth, Wind & Fire
  • Let's Roll --- Chaka Khan
  • Easy --- The Commodores
  • For All We Know --- Donny Hathaway
