I concur with britprincess1. Back in the day, when this movie was new, I did not see it - could not afford the price of a ticket and this was way before all our present movie delivery systems we now have. Finally, I decided to watch it courtesy of SPL and found it utterly dreadful. I am long past the days when vulgarity is entertaining so clearly you need to see this when you can relate to the characters as your contemporaries. I still like the BeeGees' music however.

A classic! It takes the director just ten minutes to describe Tony's character, his family, his job, how he spends his free time. Nice job of connecting with the audience and setting up the rest of the story. Great music. Fast paced writing/editing. Dancing is fun to watch especially the Puerto Rican couple. Very enjoyable.

I hate to be the person who hates the classic movies. I always want to see what gave it its longevity, but, unless it's Travolta's dancing, I don't understand the appeal of this film. There isn't even enough dancing for it to be that! This film is such a disappointment with annoying characters that are stupid abominations that treat people like dirt. In the first fifteen minutes, when I was open to whatever the film was offering and it seemed to be leading somewhere, I felt that I may be strapping in for something good, but by the time twenty minutes had passed, I completely gave up on the film. I just hated it and the characters didn't have enough charisma for me to forgive their detestable actions and personalities. I don't recommend this film to anyone.
