5.0 out of 5 stars Travolta's Defining Role!, April 28, 2007
This review is from: Saturday Night Fever (DVD)
Tony Manero (played brilliantly by John Travolta) is a 20 year old paint shop assistant living with his devout Catholic mom and his hard working dad. He doesn't get along very well with them. There are a lot of tense moments at the dinner table.

But on the weekends, Tony rules the disco! But this dancing champion of the New York disco scene needs to learn about how to treat other people like champions. He talks sassy to his mom, and he treats females with disrespect. He even blows off and ignores a friend who admires him and needs him most (the boy who commits suicide by jumping off the Verrazano Bridge).

But Tony starts to change when he meets a slightly older and more mature disco queen. He learns from her that treating people with respect is just as important as being good at what you do.

All the while, the movie is propelled by one of the greatest soundtracks in movie history, certainly the best disco album ever assembled. You also get a look at one segment of the late 1970s New York youth culture scene.
The movie still hits hard after 30 years.
