In this sequel to SaturdayNightFever, former disco king Tony Manero has left Brooklyn and lives in Manhattan. He stays in a cheap hotel and works as a dance instructor and as a dance-club waiter, trying to succeed as a professional Broadway dancer. Breaking away from his Brooklyn life, family, and friends has matured Tony and refined his personality, represented by his diminished accent and his avoidance of alcohol and profanity. But certain attitudes have not changed, as with his most-recent girlfriend, who sings in a local rock band.Written by

I don't understand why critics always scorn this film. OK, it doesn't have the magic of its predecessor "SaturdayNightFever", but it works as an "80's point of view" of the original film. The thing is that you should watch this film as a single one, not a 'sequel'. It has nothing to do with "SaturdayNightFever" but the main character Tony Manero (once again played by John Travolta) and his mother (Julie Bovasso) in a brief appearance. Fast forward from 1977 to 1983. Now Tony wants to be a Broadway star and keeps his struggle for a more mature purpose, as he himself is more mature. Manero's "moody girl" here is Laura (Finola Hughes, not so convincing), who also looks down on him. The funniest thing about "Staying Alive" is that it is directed by Sylvester Stallone! (No one remembers...) The soundtrack is one of my favorite, although it didn't received the deserved attention at the time of its release, nor did the movie itself. (I think people were afraid of another 'Bee Gees fever'). After this film, Travolta's career fell out of the spotlight only to be retaken in late 80's with "Look Who's Talking". Summarizing, in my opinion it is a very good movie, but don't expect this to be another "SaturdayNightFever".
