Tony (John Travolta) Manero dances the nights away in local the disco, a way to finally feel like he's doing something. Tony is always out because he has some issues with his family, his brother who his parents think is perfect until he decides to quit being a priest, his father who's been out of work and is aggravated about it, and his stressed mother. One day at a disco Tony sees a woman, Stephanie (Karen Lynn Gorney), who catches his eye as an amazing dancer. He asks her to join him in a dance competition. They won first, but Tony knew it was rigged. He gave up the winnings because he knew it wasn't fair. After the competition Tony and his friends when out to the bridge, Bobby (Barry Miller) was hanging from some of the cables, and walking on dangerous places, Tony tried to get him to come down, but before he could get Bobby to come down Bobby fell to his death. After that Tony left all his friends that weren't nice, then he went to Manhattan to find Stephanie, and he said he was never going back to Brooklyn, and they agreed to be friends, just friends.
If you like 70's music, is I must admit I do, you would probably like to buy the sound track. The dancing was Napoleon dynamite status, maybe a little more sophisticated, but not a whole lot. The rating was surely true. It had quite a bit of language, you could even say allot. I thought the story was kind of lame, the characters were quite boring. It just wasn't interesting. I wouldn't recommend it, honestly not at all. I seriously think that the language truly takes away from the content, it's lite the writers weren't smart enough to get a thesaurus and find some more intelegent word. I mean honestly they souknded pretty rediculous.
To sum it up, don't get it, it's awful.
