Saturday Night Fever (DVD, 2007, Special Collector's Edition)

Movie synopsis

Director John Badham's hit film propelled John Travolta to stardom, made white polyester suits an instant fashion craze, and garnered praise for its portrayal of blue-collar life. Nineteen-year-old Brooklyn native Tony Manero (Travolta) lives for Saturday nights at the local disco, where he's king of the club, thanks to his stylish moves on the dance floor. But outside of the club, things don't look so rosy. At home, Tony fights constantly with his father and has to compete with his family's starry-eyed view of his older brother, a priest. Nor can he find satisfaction at his dead-end job at a paint store. However, things begin to change when he spies Stephanie (Karen Lynn Gorney) in the disco and starts training with her for the club's dance competition. Stephanie dreams of the world beyond Brooklyn, and her plans to move to the big city just over the bridge soon change Tony's life forever. This portrait of young Brooklyn natives struggling to escape their sheltered lives for freedom and adventure in the big city of Manhattan defined a generation of disco dancers and 1970s youths rebelling against the more traditional expectations of their parents. Set to the popular dance music of the Bee Gees, this instant cinematic sensation revealed the fashions and aspirations of an underground culture to the world.

Editorial reviews

"...Travolta is deft and vibrant and he never condescends to the character....The music moves with a real spring it is step, and the movie does too."
New York Times - Janet Maslin (12/16/1977)

"...Among the definitive time-capsule pics of any era....It looks and sounds snappy..."
USA Today - Mike Clark (10/11/2002)

"...Travolta melds brute machismo and hidden yearning; it's little surprise FEVER made him a superstar and earned him an Oscar nomination..."
Entertainment Weekly - Brian M. Raftery (10/18/2002)

Empire - Simon Crook (11/01/2007)

4 stars out of 5 -- "The film still plays like an impossibly bleak slice of kitchen-sink realism..."
Uncut - Uncut Staff (11/01/2007)

SNF--ALL OVER AGAIN, JUST BETTER!!

Created: 23/10/07
From the opening title and John Travolta "Stayin' Alive" 'til the end credits, this digital remastering is just brilliant, better by far than the original. The plot is the same, characters and dialogue remain untouched; but the visuals and soundtrack far exceed anyone's expectations. This edition has more brilliant colors, defined dialogue and spectacular music. If I had only one choice out of all the DVD's available this year, I would choose SNF (2007), hands down. Recommendation: Buy it NOW for a "70's experience" of a lifetime!!!

Any true SNF fan needs to have this DVD !

Created: 05/04/08
This dvd not only contains the film, but also the "Director's Commentary" and a few extra features such as a walk back into the old neighborhood where the Manero family lived (Bay Ridge - Bensonhurst). Also includes interviews with some of the supporting actors in the film commemorating the 30 year anniversary of SNF. Excellent film; a testament to the mid 1970s and the old Italian neighborhoods of NY !
