Storyline

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 dance-club waiter, trying to succeed as a professional Broadway dancer. Breaking away from his Brooklyn life, family, and friends has matured Tony and refined his personality, represented by his diminished accent and his avoidance of alcohol and profanity. But certain attitudes have not changed, as with his most-recent girlfriend, who sings in a local rock band. Written by Mark J. Popp <mjpopp@cwave.com>

Good movie!
15 February 2020 | by Eelco_1977See all my reviews

I mainly don't see this as a sequel to "Saturday Night Fever" (1977).

I see it more as a quite enjoyable movie that gives us some insight into the world of professional dancing. "Saturday Night Fever" (1977) certainly was more of a movie that tried (and succeeded in parts in my opinion!) to give us some insight into the nightlife of the late seventies.

Anyhow, I enjoy this movie for what I think it is. It certainly doesn't deserve the negative crap it has gotten throught the years. I give it a 7/10 :)
