Overview

Director Sylvester Stallone proves you really can't go home again in Staying Alive, the absurd sequel to Saturday Night Fever. The story finds Tony Manero Travolta six years later working as a waiter in a nightclub while he tries to realize his dreams of dancing on Broadway what tough street kid from Brooklyn doesn't? He eventually makes the cut as an extra for "Satan's Alley" billed as "a musical trip through Hell" and immediately sets his sights on the show's snooty prima-donna star Finola Hughes, decidedly unsuited for such dancing as her role requires. Meanwhile, the nice girl he's been seeing Cynthia Rhodes stands by her man, waiting patiently for him to come around. When the male lead can't cut it, Tony is offered the part, and tensions rise. The action culminates in the show itself and Tony's ultimate realization that he needs to please only himself. Indeed, the horrific dancing combined with Frank Stallone's inane musical score makes one wonder just how accurate the show's billing of "a musical trip through Hell" actually is. As long as one disassociates this film from its predecessor, Staying Alive is highly enjoyable for its schlock value; it may well be an inadvertent camp classic for Travolta's sweaty thongs alone. As for Stallone's direction and screenwriting abilities, he proves he is better off to remain an underdog prize-fighter/ commie-killer/mercenary cop/ double-fisted union leader/etc...

    Women love this movie!

    I've seen this movie so many times I can recite the lines. He worked his butt off to get into physical shape for this movie, and does it ever show. Critics hated this movie, big surprise. I loved it. Cynthia Rhodes is great in it too. Watch for a quick cameo appearance by Richie Sambora (of Bon Jovi) playing in the band with Cynthia Rhodes and Frank Stallone. If you haven't seen this movie, gather your girlfriends, get some good eats, and have a movie night with a great movie, awesome soundtrack and a very good looking cast. How could John Travolta be bad?!

    ITS THE COOLEST!!!!

    THIS MOVIE IS THE GREATEST ''DANCE'' MOVIE OF ALL TIME. MOST PEOPLE DON'T THINK IT LIVES UP TO SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER BUT I THINK IT DOES. TONY IS BACK AS AN UP AND COMING BROADWAY DANCER TRYING TO SUPPORT HIS CAREER. DURING ONE OF HIS MANY AUDITIONS HE MEETS UP WITH A WOMAN WHO CHANGES HIS LIFE IN SO MANY WAYS. YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE MOVIE TO FIND OUT IN WHAT WAYS, BUT I AM TELLING YOU THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE BESIDES GREASE THAT JOHN TRAVOLTA HAS EVER DONE. EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH IT!!!
