Saturday Night Fever makes good moviemaking seem easy.
December 21, 2015
Saturday Night Fever assaults you with a flagrantly foul-mouthed script and coarse viewpoint.
April 7, 2015
Saturday Night Fever is wonderfully honest and completely accurate when it comes to depicting that stagnant environment that keeps young people like Tony pinned down.
April 27, 2009
A small, solid film, made with craft if not resonance.

Travolta's characterization, given the script and directorial demands, is okay. It will please the already-committed; but it won't win him any new fans.
February 9, 2006
In the end, the real killer is the movie's abject sincerity.

Leaving aside any social commentary that the film does not address, this Saturday night is not safe from reproducing well-known cliches. Despite its silly and happy ending, it leaves us with a frustrated and broken aftertaste. [Full Review in Spanish]

Most details of character and setting, finally, are reduced to simplistic icons, mingling with such over-emphasised bric-a-brac as posters of Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Rocky and Al Pacino.

Not many movies are genuine cultural phenomena, and John Badham's Saturday Night Fever is without doubt one of the most memorable.
November 9, 2016
Contemptuous of the community it phonily purports to depict.
September 24, 2015
This is one tough picture - bristling and raw, with an aggression more attuned to angry-young-man British kitchen sink dramas than Hollywood's quickie music-fad cash-ins.
November 5, 2013
It's a remarkable drama...
December 15, 2010
Disco drama is not just daaancin' yeah!

In a just world, this movie would've been soundtracked with Donna Summer's "Could It Be Magic" and Diana Ross's "Love Hangover." So, in other words, the soundtrack to Looking for Mr. Goodbar.

Saturday Night Fever's heart is actually in the right place. It's ears, though? That's another story.
May 7, 2009 cannot dismiss its cultural significance, which today may be part of its campy appeal. (Blu-ray Edition)
May 7, 2009
Today, it's like a kind of '70s jukebox that hasn't quite aged that well.
October 13, 2007
The omission of John Travolta in any of the commentaries or documentaries is a major shadow that the new disc cannot get out from.
