REVIEWS:









"The music moves with a real spring in its step, and the movie does too. .... John Travolta is so earnestly in tune with the character that Tony [Manero] becomes even more touching than he is familiar and a source of fierce, desperate excitement. The movie, which spends mercifully little time
trying to explain Tony, has a violent energy very like his own."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; December 16, 1977








ANOTHER "SNF" REVIEW BY ROGER EBERT:



"Saturday Night Fever was Gene Siskel's favorite movie, and he watched it at least 17 times. We all have movies like that, titles that transcend ordinary categories of good and bad, and penetrate straight to our hearts. ....

We all have a powerful memory of the person we were at that moment when we formed a vision for our lives. Tony Manero stands poised precisely at that moment. He makes mistakes, he fumbles, he says the wrong things, but when he does what he loves he feels a special grace. ....

We are right to remember his strut, and the beauty of his dancing. 'Devote your life to something you love--not like, but love,' Siskel liked to say. Saturday Night Fever is about how Tony Manero does that. ....

Gene bought the famous white suit at a charity auction. I got to inspect it once. It came with a shirt that buttoned under the crotch, so it would
still look neat after a night on the dance floor. I asked Gene if
he'd ever tried it on. It was too small, he said. But it wasn't
the size that mattered. It was the idea of the suit."

-- Roger Ebert; March 7, 1999
