Saturday Night Fever makes good moviemaking seem easy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

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.

Contemptuous of the community it phonily purports to depict.
December 21, 2015
Saturday Night Fever assaults you with a flagrantly foul-mouthed script and coarse viewpoint.
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.

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.

It's a remarkable drama...

Disco drama is not just daaancin' yeah!

Saturday Night Fever's heart is actually in the right place. It's ears, though? That's another story.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Today, it's like a kind of '70s jukebox that hasn't quite aged that well.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
April 27, 2009
A small, solid film, made with craft if not resonance.
March 5, 2009
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.
November 29, 2006
John Badham's film (his best to date), a zeitgeist picture that captures the disco subculture of the 1970s like no other work, features a star-making performance from John Travolta who dominates every frame.

In the end, the real killer is the movie's abject sincerity.

My "how to" book as a teenage.

One of the best films of all time
| Original Score: 4/5
October 10, 2003
It holds up beautifully, mainly because it puts the characters and their flaws first and the disco nightlife second. Travolta remains an amazing, graceful presence on the dance floor.

The very epitome of 'outdated', but oddly enough that's what makes it such a (mini) classic.
