Saturday Night Fever

BBBB (out of 5) There’s no one out there like Tony Manero to chase your blues away. He talks tough, struts even tougher, and disco-dances like a mofo on a fiery Soul Train-spotlit floor. John Travolta deservedly catapulted to stardom with the success of this dramatic musical, playing a rebel from Brooklyn who finds escape from his … More Saturday Night Fever
