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!!
