Musical Interlude: Suddenly (1980)

There are those that believe that "Xanadu" was one of the worst films of all time. The soundtrack couldn't be at fault, as it generated 4 singles in all, three of them featuring the film's star, Olivia Newton-John. Now, I've never seen "Xanadu", so I can't rightfully judge.

Here, though, is a rarely seen video for Olivia's duet with Cliff Richard, "Suddenly", which would end up being Richard's last American hit, coming as it did a year after "We Don't Talk Anymore".

It would take three years before Olivia made another movie, as she reunited with "Grease" co-star John Travolta for "Two of a Kind".

Xanadu - Grease on rollerskates with disco instead of a vaguely 50s musical backdrop. At least that's how I recall it.

Which would be the consensus opinion, and a good enough reason why critics crapped on it.
