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

I love this movie. I grew up dancing in my basement to this soundtrack. John Travolta always a genius and Cynthia Rhodes is brilliant.
I think it is best to not compare it to Saturday Night Fever. Saturday Night Fever is in a league of its own and I do think Mr. Stallone was not trying to recreate the original.
On its own it is a fantastic movie!! Killer soundtrack and amazing dancing!! The best scenes in my opinion, are the opening audition scene, that is some serious dancing from Travolta, as well as the last scene of Satan's Alley-"Jump Damn it!!"
What more can you ask for???
