Flawless Review


Bad
Oh. My. God. Who came up with the idea for this piece of junk? Robert De Niro as a bigoted, half-paralyzed stroke victim who takes speech & singing lessons from cross-dressing Philip Seymour Hoffman? Of course they're going to learn to love one another, if only they can get through the inane subplots involving gangsters and a gay beauty pageant. De Niro has never been worse.

Very Good
Time and the selectiveness of memory has recorded Saturday Night Fever as a fun romp about disco and little more. Check out the reviews online -- they talk about how great the Bee Gees music is, John Travolta's dance moves, his hairdo, and his Brooklyn swagger.

Flawless Review


Weak

Add one part irritating drag queen movie ("To Wong Fu..." will do nicely) and two parts syrupy, medicinal social commentary.
