Why does EVERYONE love this film so much?
if by that you mean that she has to change to be as much like him as humanly possible, then ok.
i agree with you on the other things though.
i still don't see how her only chance of happiness should be to turn into a copy of someone else. but maybe i should watch the film again.
but the theme tune is one of the greatest pop songs ever, and the 2nd best thing Frankie Valli ever put his name to
apart from that it's shit though
the best musical film ever?
the songs are all hits in themselves, the storyline is ace and original, and all the acting is tremendous.
he does sing 'the chicks will cream' and 'she's real pussy wagon'
Why have I never heard these 'pussy wagon' lyrics before???
"With a four speed on the floor they'll be waiting at the door
You know that ain't no shit we'll be getting lots of tit"
You'd better shape up!
I am in shock as I never have heard such lyrics.
(I hang my head in shame)
I like it when she says gang bang. chortle chortle.
seems a bit too 18-30's.
it wasnt 'hip' in my day when it was released, it was mainstream and rather cheesy, but not very awful, John Travolta actually had a bit of kudos cos of saturday night fever (the film) cos the film was actually quite gritty in some ways, and like Grease was the opposite
the songs are great but not my thing I guess. I'm a bit flummoxed by the ending myself, she changes completely (and looks WORSE than before), but John Travolta seemingly doesn't have to change at all. Eh?
I'm probably taking it all way way too seriously. But still it's not a patch on West Side Story or The Blues Brothers as musicals go anyway
finally someone who understands
It's well good.
