Getting Over (1981)

  • John Daniels
  • Gwen Briscoe
  • Paulette Gibson
This tuneful drama features the rock group Love Machine as it tells the tale of a record promoter hired by a crooked producer to fulfill affirmative action quotas. It is the hard-working, independent-minded promoter who discovers and develops the Love Machine, an all female group. The trouble begins when the group's lead singer is kidnapped and the promoter learns that his employer's label is really a front for the mob.

I f*cking love this movie. I especially love when the racist record exec can't even say "Impossible Funky."
