"Camp aficionados have a way of transforming other people's trash into their own personal treasures. And since camp is so thoroughly rooted in irony, it's fitting that camp lovers generally enjoy movies for the same reasons the irony-challenged abhor them. Take 1978's Thank God It's Friday, which was savaged by critics for being a tacky, faddish, unconvincing love letter to disco filled with pop-culture references that have aged like an egg-salad sandwich, plus enough polyester to clothe a fashion-challenged Third World nation. Yet today the film can be appreciated as kitsch for just those reasons. Well, that and Lionel Richie's formidable afro. Thank God It's Friday's immersion in everything disco is a big part of its tacky, superficial charm. It's a big mirror-balled time capsule. "
