Saturday Night Fever's heart is actually in the right place. It's ears, though? That's another story.

Contemptuous of the community it phonily purports to depict.

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.

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

Saturday Night Fever assaults you with a flagrantly foul-mouthed script and coarse viewpoint.

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.

There's a lot in the movie that's sad and painful, but after a few years what you remember is John Travolta on the dance floor in that classic white disco suit, and the Bee Gees on the soundtrack.

The very epitome of 'outdated', but oddly enough that's what makes it such a (mini) classic.

It's a remarkable drama...

Travolta's ad-libbing about his hair alone is enough to merit remembering SNF as a classic.
