John Travolta is a working-class fella from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn who feels most alive when he’s out dancing at the club on Saturday night. His character appropriately has a Rocky poster in his bedroom; like that film, Saturday Night Fever is mostly about depicting the mundanity and limitations of a working-class life. There is a big dance competition in Saturday Night Fever, but just like the big boxing match in Rocky, to say the story is not sharply focused on John Travolta’s preparation for the competition is an understatement. A more complicated and more interesting film than you might expect. Worth Checking Out.

Yes, a terrific movie. It’s much darker than you’d expect from the soundtrack!

Also, it is based on this article from 1976:
How funny that it’s still up on their website. I guess that’s standard practice for magazines?
