Storyline

Kung Fu meets disco in Singapore. Hock is a grocery clerk longing for a motorbike. He lives with his parents and sister; they idolize his younger brother, Beng, a medical student calling himself Leslie. Hock loves Bruce Lee; he works out and imitates his moves. When Hock sees a cheesy local version of "Saturday Night Fever," he gets the disco bug, taking his pal Mei to nightly lessons in hopes of winning a contest and buying the bike. He's blind to Mei's falling in love with him, and, at the last minute asks another woman to be his partner in the contest. Meanwhile, Beng reveals a personal secret to his family and a crisis ensues. Hock, Beng, Mei and her rival: it's Night Fever. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A great little film
29 July 2001 | by Vigilante-407See all my reviews

This movie definitely exceeded my expectations...especially since I knew the main theme of the film was disco. This movie parallels the classic of the disco genre, Saturday Night Fever, in many ways, but also is a delightful look at life in the late seventies in Singapore.

The soundtrack is full of great 70's hits, and the cinematography takes full advantage of the exotic locale. The actors and actresses breathe real life into what normally would have been one-dimensional characters, making this film very enjoyable.
