“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Dance or Die (1987)
How bad is it? It's perhaps the worst of the terrible City Lights productions. Should you see it? I give it a mild thumb's-up.
This film's about a recovering coke addict wanting to stage a Las Vegas dance show, plus an outdoor fish tank, a psychic, dreams of demons with pink hair, 80's hair and fashions, trying to talk over road noise, a fantasy sequence involving sex on a motorcycle and a final dance production number that's very laughable because it continuously intercuts with action scenes. It's plot is thin and nothing is terribly involving, but it's dumb enough to keep your attention - like a long YouTube video (which is how I saw it).
