The year was 1977 (26 years ago) and I remember having mom my take a group of us to see this movie because we were way too young to get in as we were in our very early teens. I remember loving this movie and feeling like I was watching something special. At said time I mostly enjoyed the great music, outstanding dance sequences, and a virtuoso performance by one of the Sweathogs from "Welcome Back Kotter".
Having watched it several times since (just saw it again last night), I realize that this movie not only reflected a dance/music craze, but at the core is a thoughtful character study at both micro and macro levels. It is truly reflective of the best of the tradition of movies of the 1970's like "Alice Does Not Live Here Anymore" as it's mostly character and not plot driven, unlike most of today's releases.
All the characters feel so true to life, mostly due to excellent writing and superb acting, that you can feel like you are one of them or at least sitting next to them. The movie also touches on so many issues in the most naturalistic way. No neat "Lifetime" movie touches to be found, and although you don't feel beaten over the head with it, the movie touches on racism, economic disparity, the role of women in the family and in the whole madonna/whore context, religion, and homophobia just to name a few.
Lest you think that this movie will feel like a John Cassavettes movie (who I also enjoy most of the movie) this movie tackles its themes in one of the most entertaining ways ever filmed without the sometimes self-indulgent touches of some other favorites of mine.
The dance sequences are masterful as are those involving family and friends, and director John Badham has not made a better movie.

This cult-classic put both John Travolta and The Bee Gees on the map. Focusing on the NYC Disco Scene, the story centers around John Travolta's character, a working-class "dude", whose life revolves around being the star of the disco scene. Nothing much seems to matter in his life. He doesn't think about his future, his responsibilities or anything else; only his favorite shirt, his perfect hair and his new "slick moves on the dance floor". The word "shallow" understates the mood. -- If nothing else, the sound track featuring several great Bee Gees tunes and other Disco Classics, makes this film well worth the watching. Also, look for a walk-on appearance of a young Fran Drescher ("The Nanny").****

A lot of people call this movie a classic and a period piece. And it should be. I watched this on a plane ride from Australia to Hongkong, and I enjoyed it tremendously. Sure, the movie's a bit old, but it's not sugar-coated and unapologetic of Brooklyn in the 70s. Even as early as back then, neighborhoods were fueled by the paradoxical dichotomy of family and gangs.
Enter 19-year-old Tony Manero, a disco-god on the dance floor on Saturday nights. He works at a paint store, hangs out with his gang of underachievers, and still lives with his parents. When one of his friends gets beaten up, they take revenge on a rival gang without verifying the facts. When Tony's brother decides to quit the priesthood, and their mother blames Tony he immediately lashes out at her saying "There! You happy? Now you have two losers for sons." But family is family, and he sobbingly apologizes. There's also the requisite love triangle between Tony, Annette and Stephanie. Annette's love for Tony is unrequited. Tony's crush on Stephanie is frustrated by the fact Stephanie wants to move up in the world, while Tony remains an unsophisticated boy destined to remain in his social caste. What brings them together? Dance. Disco-dancing to be more precise.
This film is probably what created the genre of dance movies like "Strictly Ballroom" and the Japanese "Shall We Dance." In all these films, the dance floor becomes a world of its own. A world far away and far different from the chaos that surrounds our protagonists' daily lives. On the dance floor, there is no social ladder to climb, no enemies to beat up, no worries to weigh them down. Yet at the same time, it isn't the real world. And it only exists between 5 minute intervals of song.
In the real world, people look up to Tony.

"Well you can tell by the way John Travolta walks, he's a woman's man, no time to talk..." Released at the pinnacle of disco fever, John Badham's Saturday Night Fever is a nostalgic look at the late 70s, with John Travolta as Tony Manero, the main man at the discotech, where he shows off his dancing moves to the BeeGees songs. It's entertaining to sit back and watch a film that was once considered the "groovy" thing, and now is seen for what it actually is, a so-so film with excellent dancing moves, but then again, most musicals do the old "make a musical and attach a hackneyed plot of sorts and see if it gels." Thankfully, it does better than the shocking "Stayin' Alive". It's no easy watch, with sex scenes, nudity and violence not quite fitting together. Director Badham (file name under "where are they now?") gives too much attention to the outside world of drugs, sex and suicide, when it would work much more fluidly without the jarring tone changes. It's a curious throwback to the days of disco-groove, and John Travolta is effortlessly cool, but when you take out the disco, it's a combination of sleaze and violence that's hardly cohesive. But the classic BeeGees music and some great dancing from Travolta push it further than what the film itself deserves.
