view all

Brooklyn teenager (Travolta), bored with his daytime job, becomes the nighttime king of the local disco. Based on a story published in "New York Magazine" by Nik Cohn. Acclaimed for its disco dance sequences, memorable soundtrack by the Bee Gees, and carefree yet bleak script; extremely dated, although it made its mark on society in its time. Followed by the sequel "Staying Alive." Also available in a 112-minute "PG" rated version.

Saturday Night Fever

If you like Disco and leisure suits then this is the movie for you. There is lots of dancing and great music. This movie made John Travolta a hit and the music by the Bee Gees became really popular. It's a really good show for it's time. It's a little depressing to watch for the girl chase him around and she is used and abused by his gang members. The club scenes are good though for back in the day and the music makes you want to get up and dance.

Saturday Night Fever is a great movie. I love this movie. Me and my mom will watch it together if we are watching television and it comes on. We are big John Travolta fans. Saturday Night Fever is almost two hours long but doesn't feel like it. You'll be entertained through out the whole movie. If you like dancing and the 1970's era, then you'll enjoy this movie. I love the disco theme to it. John Travolta is a great dancer. This movie will make you want to boogy down and dance all night.
