I hate to be the person who hates the classic movies. I always want to see what gave it its longevity, but, unless it's Travolta's dancing, I don't understand the appeal of this film. There isn't even enough dancing for it to be that! This film is such a disappointment with annoying characters that are stupid abominations that treat people like dirt. In the first fifteen minutes, when I was open to whatever the film was offering and it seemed to be leading somewhere, I felt that I may be strapping in for something good, but by the time twenty minutes had passed, I completely gave up on the film. I just hated it and the characters didn't have enough charisma for me to forgive their detestable actions and personalities. I don't recommend this film to anyone.
