    Stallone's sequel has almost nothing to do with the original film except that it's about dancing; otherwise, it's Rocky IV with legwarmers. [16 Jul 1983]

    Staying Alive is a big disappointment.

    Staying Alive, the sequel to John Travolta's "Saturday Night Fever," plays like wet cement. [16 Jul 1983]

    The bottom line is that Staying Alive is nowhere as good as its 1977 predecessor, "Saturday Night Fever."
  5. This one is clumsy, mean spirited and amazingly unmusical.
  6. Ill-conceived, pathetically realized follow-up to "Saturday Night Fever."

    Time has shown this to be one of the strongest sequels in film history. A must see!

    I haven't seen this since I saw it in a theater in 1983. I plan on keeping it that way. I remember liking a few of the songs, but I also I haven't seen this since I saw it in a theater in 1983. I plan on keeping it that way. I remember liking a few of the songs, but I also remember a terrible story. It's like something a cokehead would make and think it's good. Collapse
