    It's also interesting to see how little screen time the final disco competition really has, considering how large it looms in our memories.

    One minute into Saturday Night Fever you know this picture is onto something, that it knows what it's talking about. [15 Oct 1999, Siskel Years, p.6]

    Travolta molds what could have been an equally obvious character into a substantial, tragic figure.

    Fever beings to flag when, after an initial hour filled with high spirits and jubilant music, it settles down to tell its story; the effect is so deflating that it's almost as though another Monday has rolled around and it's time to get back to work. [16 Dec 1977]

    The clumsy story lurches forward through predictable travail and treacle, separated by phonograph records (or vice versa).
