If you take disco dancing, John Travolta and the music of the Bee Gees and throw them all together, what do you get? Saturday Night Fever.
I have the 25th Anniversary DVD Edition of this movie, and it's fun to watch. John Travolta portrays Tony Manero, who works in a paint store and happens to be fantastic on the dance floor. There are some great dance sequences in this movie, and it really takes me back to my disco days. The movie is rated R, so it is definitely not for children, and it runs 118 minutes long.
Dancing is Tony's passion, and it creates an enjoyable viewing experience to watch him in his dance numbers. He is really very good (I wonder how long John Travolta had to practice for this movie), and the music of the Bee Gees adds tremendously to the disco scene.
There are some special features as well, such as Dolby Digital Sound, Commentary by the director, John Badham, subtitles in English and Spanish and deleted scenes.
Saturday Night Fever is an interesting story, filled with drama, dancing and some tragedy as well. Definitely a favorite of mine.
