Chicago Tribune - Gene Siskel
A typically weak sequel that has no legitimate artistic reason for being. [July 22, 1983]
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Liam Lacey
Stallone's sequel has almost nothing to do with the original film except that it's about dancing; otherwise, it's Rocky IV with legwarmers. [16 Jul 1983]
Boston Globe - Jay Carr
Staying Alive, the sequel to John Travolta's "Saturday Night Fever," plays like wet cement. [16 Jul 1983]
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Staying Alive is a big disappointment.
The New York Times - Janet Maslin
This one is clumsy, mean spirited and amazingly unmusical.

Staying Alive (1983)

It's five years later and Tony Manero's Saturday Night Fever is still burning. Now he's strutting toward his biggest challenger yet - making it as a dancer on the Broadway stage.
