Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Not quite a career low for John Travolta - Two of a Kind was still to come - but one he nevertheless would probably love to forget. The idea of doing a sequel to the film that launched his career (Saturday Night Fever) was a good one, but the warning bells should have started ringing over the involvement of Sylvester Stallone, who co-wrote and directed this clunker. The slim plot focuses on Travolta, now a professional dancer, being torn between two women as he prepares for a big show. Stallone, however, largely gives us a retread of Rocky, while brother Frank, who was responsible for much of the music, is certainly no Bee Gee.
