John Travolta's brother Joey has a good starring showcase in Sunnyside
22 June 2020 | by tavmSee all my reviews

In the year of 1979 between his more-famous younger brother John's movies of Moment by Moment and Urban Cowboy, Joey Travolta had a starring role of his own in this, a gang drama called Sunnyside. Among Joey's co-stars is Michael Tucci who just had a major supporting role in Joey's brother's blockbuster hit Grease as Sonny! Here, Tucci is Harry to Joey's Nicky. Joey sounds just like his brother and is quite good in his tough guy role as well as when he's also romancing his girlfriend Donna. Also appearing is Talia Balsam as the girlfriend of Joey's onscreen brother. I'll just now say this was quite a good showcase for Joey Travolta. Too bad it didn't do too well at the box office. Then again, maybe there was only one room for a successful acting Travolta in that particular family...
