Storyline

Kung Fu meets disco in Singapore. Hock is a grocery clerk longing for a motorbike. He lives with his parents and sister; they idolize his younger brother, Beng, a medical student calling himself Leslie. Hock loves Bruce Lee; he works out and imitates his moves. When Hock sees a cheesy local version of "Saturday Night Fever," he gets the disco bug, taking his pal Mei to nightly lessons in hopes of winning a contest and buying the bike. He's blind to Mei's falling in love with him, and, at the last minute asks another woman to be his partner in the contest. Meanwhile, Beng reveals a personal secret to his family and a crisis ensues. Hock, Beng, Mei and her rival: it's Night Fever. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Immediately after the scene where Hock runs in full '70s dance getup to meet with Mei and when he finally arrives, there is a truck in the background with a large blue covering on it. The purpose of this vehicle was not only as a set dressing, but it was used to block the camera's view of the catering area so that the crew would not have to move all of the tables and food to another location.

Funny!!!
5 February 2000 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I laughed my pants off when I saw this movie. It's SO cliche but who cares if it's funny. The characters are funny, the story is funny and even the language is funny. Although the last one was unintentionally. They talk like strange Far Eastern English which sounds like Jamaican. I've been in Singapore but don't remember the people talking that way.

This movie did the impossible and that is making Disco look like fun. Looking back we all should be ashamed of the discoperiod. Of course this movie ripped off Saturday Night Fever in almost every way, but also added some eastern elements e.g. Bruce Lee. Imagine Discodancing and Martial Arts in one movie! The flaw of the movie is the transexual subplot. It's too serious for a silly movie like this.

Miramax bought the rights, but if you think you're gonna see an arthouse movie from Singapore guess again. This movie could've been a funny brainless Hollywood movie best compaired to The Weddingsinger, but did I mention it is Funny???
