What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Saturday Night Fever is a more mature film than the catchy disco soundtrack would have you believe. Though this movie helped put disco (and star John Travolta) on the map, the original theatrical version is full of strong language, sex, and violence. The characters take part in gang fights as well as racist and sexist behavior, and there's a disturbing gang rape scene in the back of a car. Characters drink, smoke, and talk about sex; nudity includes bare breasts and a naked backside. Frequent swearing includes "f--k," "c--t," "s--t," "p---y," and the "N" word. Though Tony ends up seeking a healthier path, his family's Catholic religion has nothing to do with it; in fact, his brother, a priest, quits the clergy, declaring that he has no faith anymore. While a tamer, PG-rated cut of the film was once released on VHS, the R-rated version is the now the only one widely available.
