From Amazon.co.uk

The years have endowed Saturday Night Fever with a powerful, elegiac quality since its explosive release in 1977. It was the must-see movie for a whole generation of adolescents, sparking controversy for rough language and clumsily realistic sex scenes which took teen cinema irrevocably into a new age. And of course, it revived the career of the Bee Gees to stratospheric heights, thanks to a justifiably legendary soundtrack which now embodies the disco age. But Saturday Night Fever was always more than a disco movie. Tony Manero is an Italian youth from Brooklyn straining at the leash to escape a life defined by his family, blue collar job and his gang. Disco provides the medium for him to break free.

It was the snake-hipped dance routines which made John Travolta an immediate sex symbol. But seen today, his performance as Tony is compelling: rough-hewn, certainly, but complex and true, anticipating the fine screen actor he would be recognised as 20 years later. Scenes of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge, representing Tony's route to a bigger world, now have an added poignancy, adding to Saturday Night Fever's evocative power. It's a bittersweet classic.

On the DVD: Saturday Night Fever is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with a Dolby Digital 5.1 surround soundtrack, both of which help to recapture the unique atmosphere of the late 1970s. The main extra is a director's commentary from John Badham, with detailed descriptions of casting and the improvisation behind many of the scenes, plus the unsavoury reality behind Travolta's iconic white disco suit. --Piers Ford

4.0 out of 5 stars He's a woman's man - no time to talk 8 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This 18-rated full version of Saturday Night Fever is an excellent film. While opinions may be divided over the quality of the music ('cheesy' vs. 'classic' - and I proudly count myself as a Bee Gees fan, so I like it), it's impossible to criticise the dramatic dimension of SNF. Tony Manero (Travolta) is a very sympathetic protagonist, a normal guy desperate to 'make it' via the unlikely route of disco stardom. And what hits you hardest about this film is its gritty realism - the language is often violent, and Manero's life is portrayed as bleak and hopeless (a vision diluted by the sequel, 'Staying Alive').

5.0 out of 5 stars Sex Drugs and Disco Dancing 30 Dec 2003
Format:DVD
I normally wouldn't write a review on a movie but I feel so stongly about this one that I couldn't resist....
This movie was made during a risky time when Anti Disco campaign was sweeping the US and the disco movement went undergroud in Chicago and New York, this movie changed peoples perception on Disco and on John Travolta.
John Trovolta plays Tony Manero and troubled teen from Brooklyn, whos strong italian family influence troubles him when they don't know and understand his worth. He escapes his average everyday life at the local discotheque, where his is king of the dancefloor, grooving to the funky tunes.
It is a sad story with great music and a superb dance scene by Travolta, who looks and plays the part of Tony Manero to a T. A very true image of teenage life and the hardships one goes through to find ones true self. A great movie with a insight on a different time when platform shoes and polyester rule, one of the best lines in the movie is when the DJ announces "I love that polyester look" over the mike in the club. It tacky and sleazy and ideal to watch the dance scenes before a night out, it will really get you in the mood!
A movie that will travel through the ages and make you want to learn how to hussle!!

3.0 out of 5 stars I am a Disco Dancer 10 May 2007
By Jay
Format:DVD
In short, it is a movie that has stood the test of time since its release in 1977. It made Travolta a star (he was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar as was Gorney for best supporting actress) and it deserves high marks on many levels. PLUS the soundtrack...magic such as Staying Alive, Night Fever plus the Fifth of Beethoven.

Please stay away from the sequel "Staying Alive". Stallone discards everything from the original but Travolta and the story is mundane and predictable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality 17 April 2007
Format:DVD
I may be ever so slightly biased about this film but I think it holds up brilliantly. And in fact I'd go so far as to say I think it is a seminal 70s movie - up there with Deer Hunter, Dog Day Afternoon, The Conversation, Taxi Driver. I think its great. Truly great. What I think makes it so good is how unhollywood it really is. I don't think a film like this would get made by hollywood now (and I know that phrase is just a cliche these days). But it really makes me feel like I felt when Reservoir dogs came out except it isn't anything like as showy or knowing as that film and to my mind the better for it. Its lowkey, well structured, well characterised and so PAINFUL on a personal tragedy level!!!! And its in the context of that that the FANTASTIC dance scenes become like a fairytale - Tony's escape. Magical film.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Saturday Night's Allright! 31 May 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best transfers and pressings I have seen. The picture quality is crisp, the audio is crystal clear. The quality is so good, it looks like it was made yesterday! With a fair selection of extra features, you will not be disappointed. If you are a fan of this movie or would like to see it for the first time, buy this and thank me afterwards. Truly superb! 5*****

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Blu-ray ! 2 May 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Saturday night fever is one of my all time favourite films so when the blu ray release was finally announced after being delayed for over a year ! i was really pleased. I have just recived the u.s release which is identical to the u.k one and thought id post my thoughts.

Picture. Wow paramount have done a good job on this! ive seen SNF countless times on VHS,DVD,TV but ive never seen it look this good! It won't wow you say like a recent film will but given this is 30 yrs old + its a revelation. Colors have more pop,depth and clarity to the image is very apparent and fine detail in close up looks amazing. 4/5

Sound. Now i dont have a DTS-HD/Dolby HD receiver/decoder,just a regular DD/DTS one but the sound was very good and a higher bit rate from the dvd.

Extras. Disappointingly paramount have just ported all the extras over from the 30th anniversary edition dvd a couple of yrs back and nothing else. Personally i found the original 25th anniversary dvd release superior giving that it had the excellent VH1 documentary which was pretty in depth..but alas this has been ditched again. The extras are good but are lightweight compared to the old VH1 documantary. The best is the "music of fever" with the bee gees and "Back to bay ridge" which has supporting star joeseph cali revisit all the old locations used today!Please note that all the extras are in 1080i HD !!

Verdict.. A wonderful transfer,good audio and good but not amazing extras should make this a no brainer!

The fever lives on !
