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

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

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.

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