In this sequel to Saturday Night Fever, 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 waiter at a dance club, trying to succeed as a professional dancer on Broadway. The breakaway from his Brooklyn life, family and friends seems to have matured Tony and refined his personality, represented by his diminished accent and his avoidance of alcohol and profanity. However, certain attitudes have not changed, as with his most recent girlfriend, who's also the singer of a local rock band. Written by

Originally, Paramount wanted Sylvester Stallone to also play the Broadway stage director. He declined, partly because the studio couldn't provide his (then rock-bottom) $2 million rate, but also not to detract from Travolta's performance. He claimed "that is me up there on the screen," so he didn't feel any need to act in the film. See more »
In the beginning of the movie, Travolta is dancing wearing layered white and black legwarmers. In the same scene, he is shown wearing layered red and black legwarmers. When the scene ends, he is wearing white and black layered legwarmers again. See more »
You know a woman's career as a dancer is half as long as a man's? So that means I have half as many chances of making it, right?

For those of you who think this movie is a let down, then I am afraid you are let down.
This 80's classic has more fever in its final scene than the whole of the first movie put together.
Okay the first one rocked, get over it, its a story about life and having the confidence to go for it. There is not a part in this movie that is I personally don't like, in fact I could probably read the script start to finish. I ain't no freak but this movie is quite simply a master piece, It is the Rocky IV of dance movies and twice the film at that. Its a progression of his life, the disco days are gone and he needs to get something going to quench his thirst for life. It if anything teaches you to reach for the the unattainable, the only barriers in life are the ones we put up our selves, Manero teaches us we can go all the way and not sell ourselves short. Read between the lines 80's Edam and I love it!
I GIVE YOU THE LEAD IN A Broadway SHOW AND YOU WALK OUT THE DOOR!
