Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: The racist and sexist attitudes of the times. Note during the dance contest, the black couple is booed as much as the Hispanic one, and even as Tony angrily decries how they were passed over for the top prize, he uses a racial slur when describing them.


Added DiffLines:

* FriendsRentControl: That's a hell of a nice apartment Stephanie has on a dance teacher/secretary's salary. Even in the 70's, it's a little implausible.

* OnlySaneMan: Stephanie and Frank. Tony as well, at least compared with his friends.

A sequel titled ''Staying Alive'' was released in 1983. [[{{Sequelitis}} It didn't do as well with the critics,]] especially since director/co-writer SylvesterStallone also decided to heavily feature his brother Frank on the soundtrack.

* MadonnaWhoreComplex: Tony believes that a girl can be either a [[ProperLady "nice girl" you enter into a serious relationship with and maybe even marry eventually]] or a [[CountryMatters "c**t" that you sleep with]], not both.

* [[ThereAreTwoKindsOfPeopleInTheWorld There Are Two Kinds of Girls in the World]]: Tony's philosophy is that a girl can either be a [[MyGirlIsNotASlut "nice girl"]] or a [[CountryMatters "c**t"]], but not both. He seems to have a case of the MadonnaWhoreComplex.

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Nik Cohn:''' My story was a fraud. I'd only recently arrived in New York. Far from being steeped in Brooklyn street life, I hardly knew the place. As for Vincent, my story's hero, he was largely inspired by [[ScooterRidingMod a Shepherd's Bush mod]] whom I'd known in TheSixties, a one-time king of Goldhawk Road.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: "[[http://nymag.com/nightlife/features/45933/ Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night]]" by the New Yorker. Played with, since it's now known that the article itself was made up by Nik Cohn (who wisely added a disclaimer "Everything described in this article is factual and was either witnessed by me or told to me directly by the people involved. Only the names of the main characters have been changed", which basically said "If the people who told it to me are lying, then I'm blameless."[[note]]Said people, however, ''didn't exist''.[[/note]]
