All could be forgiven if it weren't for the soulless overall slickness.

A slick, commercial cinematic jukebox, a series of self-contained song-and-dance sequences that could be cut apart and played forever on MTV -- which is probably what will happen.

Not quite a career low for John Travolta -- Two of a Kind was still to come -- but one he nevertheless would probably love to forget.

So horrific are the musical sequences in this movie that you'll swear you were having nightmares directed by Satan himself.

More like staying dead...a monotonous and unnecessary sequel that has all the grace and flow of a greased hog on rollerskates

The bottom line is that Staying Alive is nowhere as good as its 1977 predecessor, Saturday Night Fever.

As always Travolta is urban gorgeous and very charming. The rest of the film is neither.

If not quite one of the worst sequels ever made, it's near the top of the list of all-time most disappointing sequels. Writer-director Stallone stupidly attempts to turn Tony Manero into a dancing Rocky.

Saturday Night Fever through the eyes of Stallone.

This film constantly falls flat on its face.

[Sylvester Stallone] pours lots of energy but little intelligence into scads of short, sweaty scenes more suited to the rhythms of cable-TV ''rock video'' than to the wide screen.

A sequel with no understanding of what made its predecessor work.
