  • It's also interesting to see how little screen time the final disco competition really has, considering how large it looms in our memories. show more

  • One minute into Saturday Night Fever you know this picture is onto something, that it knows what it's talking about. [15 Oct 1999, Siskel Years, p.6] show more

  • The story here is really secondary to character and milieu, as director John Badham and his actors create a convincing portrait of frustrated 1970s working-class youth and the escape offered by the swirling lights and pulsing rhythms of the disco. show more

    The Definitive New York \'70\'s movie !! What American Graffitti did for the early \'60\'s SNF does for the \'70\'s. I remember the polyester shirts,leather jackets and the neck chains like yesterday. The disco Friday and Saturday nights. A classic movie for the era. Bee Gees and all of it. Gotta Love it!

    This movie will forever be the Icon of my generation. I defined who my friend & I were. We lived & breathed the dancing, the look & the style. We lived in brooklyn. Drove the Monticarlos suped up, with fog lights & loud sound systems. We lived to go to the discos on the weekends. We all had the big hair like him using consort hairspray and Paco Rabane Cologne. It created a generation defined by it forever, with the best music to ever come out.
