    A wonderfully witty homage to the very king of disco movies -- "Saturday Night Fever."
  2. Cannibalizes "Saturday Night Fever" for everything from structure to plot, but does it adorably.
  3. 75
    Spins a fairy tale web that is hard to escape.
  4. A low-maintenance crowd-pleaser, but we've seen the entire film, in thematic snippets, before.
  5. Amounts to recycling rather than reinvention.
  6. 40
    Goei's sharp-eyed satiric sense evokes the diversity and energy of Singapore, and his good-humored nostalgia makes disco rise from the dead.
