Hi! Today, we’re releasing a fun, new feature. It’s “Me and My Cat Motor Review a Movie Together,” in which our editor, Barbara, and her cat, Motor, well…review a movie.
Our first installment is the 1983 film, “Stayin Alive,” starring John Travolta as dancer Tony Manero, with Cynthia Rhodes and Finola Hughes. The movie is the sequel to the iconic “Saturday Night Fever” and named after the song “Staying Alive” by the BeeGees that become wildly popular from the first film’s soundtrack.
According to Wikipedia, this movie grossed $126 million dollars at the box office.
And, while the movie had a lot going for it, such as the fame of its director, Sylvester Stallone, and starred some talented actors and dancers, our reviewers will take a look at why this movie didn’t quite live up to expectations and has since made the list of Worst Movie Sequels Ever by Entertainment Weekly.
Warning: There are many, many spoiler alerts in this review, so you might want to watch the movie first. Or you might want to just grab some popcorn and dive right in to the review itself. Either way, we hope you enjoy the most exciting movie review team to happen to movies since Siskel and Ebert, perhaps even more exciting since both of them were human.
