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").****

Racist (white people dance better than latinos or blacks or can be decent enough to recognize when it's not the case), hypocritical (you see the effect of cocaine without seeing anyone taking a sniff or talking about it), mysoginistic (that's too kind a word) and dumb movie for people who can't dance. The hero is a moron, his friends are worst and the girl is unsufferable, This movie teaches you that a guy who kills himself because he made a girl pregnant deserves our sympathy over a woman who gets gang raped in the back of a car!!! What's worst is that the guy who's partly responsible for it all is our "hero", who rejected the girl and who tried to rape his own dance partner and love interest. And we're supposed to care for this guy? Really? The only thing he has to say to the poor girl is "Are you happy now?" and then he goes to the one he tried to rape and apologizes to her with puppy eyes. Soooo stupid! But the worst part is thinking that this movie is still encensed and seen as a classic! The only reason to watch this mess is too remind us how low humanity can get!

"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.

When this movie debuted in 1977, few could have predicted the meteoric rise of Travolta's career or the eventual summarization of an entire decade (although produced in the later half) from this one motion picture.
This film tells the story of a working class Italian American youth who has big dreams in urban America and finds escape in the disco scene. The lights and over-the-top fashions enable an otherwise average young man to become somebody special in the disco scene.
Few TV Actors (his principal reputation at the time of filming), let alone teen heartthrobs at that, can make such a culturally impacting film which stays riveting twenty five years after it's debut. Through this release, Travolta made a seamless transition from "Teen Idol" to "Superstar".
What could have ended up being a hastily slapped-together bubblegum project thankfully turned out to be a product that is honest and complex on so many levels. The angst and yearning are clearly genuine and keep the viewer glued to Tony's ongoing quest to find and define himself.
Certainly, the filming and the costume are horribly dated by modern standards, but the script remains captivating . Many successors have tried to replicate the plot, with various degrees of success and failure, but this is cinematic achievement unparalleled.
Although the movie does have some scenes which may be viewed as potentially sexist today, it is important to remember that efforts against sexual assault and domestic violence were just gaining momentum around this time, and many other institutions in society exhibited the same laid-back attitude towards something now universally recognized as evil. In this respect, the film is a reflection of the times in which it was produced.
