    Stallone's sequel has almost nothing to do with the original film except that it's about dancing; otherwise, it's Rocky IV with legwarmers. [16 Jul 1983] show more

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

    Yes, not as great as the original, but not horrible. Bad part about it is that the character of Tony tried to come off as such a saint, when he was really screwing around on a great girlfriend. with a total bitch. The dancing was awesome, tho and the music was doable.
