    Desperately wants to be Saturday Night Fever for country music and really, really isn't. Though the culture itself is well-represented, the characters are one-dimensional and the romance is shallow and soapy. I'm not sure what I expected here, but I did not expect to be as bored as I was.

    This movie is more than some bully riding in a bar - it's about relationships and every day life;
    Ok sometimes Travolta and Winger are on automatic pilot, but they are definitely good actors.

    It has some good performances and some good scenes... outside of Gilley's. I may live in Texas but I just don't get jazzed about bull-riding and two-stepping.

    A kind of spiritual sequel to Saturday Night Fever, Urban Cowboy stars John Travolta as Bud Davis, a Texas cowboy who travels to Houston to earn enough money to buy his own ranch. While he’s there, he falls in love with Sissy, played by Debra Winger, who he meets at Gilley’s, a bar on the outskirts of the city, and the film follows the ups and downs of their romance, courtship, marriage and separation as they drift in and out…

    How much abuse do we have to watch Debra Winger withstand on screen? :l All of the men in this movie are gross.

    An iconic soundtrack + Debra Winger rides a mechanic bull = Good enough for me.

    A don't give a shrimp about bullriding or any other country bullshit, but how wasn't Travolta nominated for anything?

    Silly, misogynist, not enough two-stepping.

    Yes, for real. It's that good.

    Nothing actually happens in this movie. No character growth, no interesting story, not even a conflict worth getting riled up about. Just a bunch of unlikable white trash good for nothings killing time until they drink or fight themselves to death. Or fall off a mechanical bull the wrong way (which is what I was hoping would happen but never did). And this pointless movie is over two hours long.

    this movie is pretty good. in a surprising twist, the female lead is the sympathetic character and hot young john travolta is kind of a dick. it's a surprising twist unless of course you've seen staying alive, which has more or less the same plot. subbing in mechanical bull riding for dance here. JT looks to die for in a white tshirt, cowboy hat and jeans
