Disco Dancing

Saturday Night Fever is probably the most unexpectedly adult movie I’ve seen. I knew it was R, but I didn’t expect it to be that R. Everybody knows Saturday Night Fever as the movie that launched John Travolta’s career. The opening “Stayin’ Alive” sequence will go down in movie history as one of the most iconic openings ever. The opening and the disco dancing numbers were all I knew about the movie. Boy was I surprised when I saw the whole movie. Saturday Night Fever is filled with strong language, adult situations, and controversial topics. The 70’s was a bit of a transitional period for Hollywood. R rated movies were a lot more adult during this time. Actually, the more I think about it, dancing movies often deal with controversial topics. As a dance movie, Saturday Night Fever has some of the best. John Travolta is surprisingly good with the drama his character goes through. Saturday Night Fever is the most 70’s movie you can watch. It’ll make you want to get up dance the night away.
