Saturday Night FeverHD Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
John Travolta gives a sensual and intelligent performance as the troubled Tony Manero - Brooklyn paint store clerk by day and undisputed king of the dance floor by night. Every Saturday, Tony puts on his wide collared shirt, flared trousers and platform shoes and heads out to the only place where he's seen as a god rather than just some young punk. But in the darkness, away from the strobe lights and glitter ball, is a tragic story of disillusionment, violence and heartbreak. Without a doubt, Travolta's performance made him a Hollywood legend, but Saturday Night Fever is more than just a movie that defined the music and fashion of a generation. It's a powerful and provocative urban tragedy that carries as much significance today as it did in 1977.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Travolta is deft and vibrant, and he never condescends to the character, not even in a scene that has Tony and Stephanie arguing about whose Romeo and Juliet it is, Zeffirelli's or Shakespeare's.
Fresh: Saturday Night Fever is wonderfully honest and completely accurate when it comes to depicting that stagnant environment that keeps young people like Tony pinned down.
Fresh: There's a lot in the movie that's sad and painful, but after a few years what you remember is John Travolta on the dance floor in that classic white disco suit, and the Bee Gees on the soundtrack.
Fresh: A small, solid film, made with craft if not resonance.
Now this is a good movie. John is great in this.
itunes finally has this movie!! I've been waiting so long. this movie is great. If you're kinda into disco, dancing, john travolta, or the 70s...you'll totally be into this. and if you're not, you'll probably still like it, this is great. five stars.
The soundtrack is also great with the Bee Gees included
