Extras: The most noticeable extra was a separate disc called “Porn in the Disco Era”, about an hour of really old porn clips with a weird soundtrack. While I’d rather have a lengthy selection of company scenes in the “best of” variety (Jordan has shot a lot of great ass-centric scenes over the years), it set the mood for those too young to remember what porn from the “good old days” was like. The second disc was strictly devoted to extras as well, a 152:56 minute long Behind the Scenes feature showing the cast learning to dance, having some fun on set, and giving interviews. There was also a photogallery and a pop shot loop from the scenes.
Audio/Video Quality: Saturday Night Fever XXX was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Jordan Septo for Exquisite. This version was offered up in standard definition using the usual MPEG-2 encoding, the video bitrate varying quite a bit though seemingly hovering around the 4.5 Mbps area when spot checked. The lighting varied substantially but looked appropriate for the movie elements in each scene, the fleshtones accurate and the editing appearing to show some care as an homage to the original mainstream hit from decades ago (yes, I saw it in the theaters). While not a mirroring parody as other genre titles have been (the kind that simply copy the mainstream title as closely as possible but add some sex), it did offer up (as the director suggested recently) more of an homage to the original, pornifying elements as needed to make for a better entertainment value. The technical aspects as shot by cameraman Paul Woodcrest were nicely done in most areas of the production, including some stock shots to help add context. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using a 48 kHz sampling rate and 192 Kbps audio bitrate, the score by Jeffrey Bryan adding some hint of the original flick while the vocals were always clearly heard. In all, the balance of elements (both aural and visual) were well done.

Body of Review: Jordan Septo is an acclaimed gonzo director for Exquisite, his modest attempts at parodies raising a smile but hardly the stuff of legend by comparison to his other works. In an attempt to change all that, he took great efforts to make Saturday Night Fever XXX, a fuck flick he calls more of an homage to the John Travolta dance classic from the 1970’s than a true parody. Going into the show, I thought back to when I saw the original with some friends, the themes of the movie less important to me then than the music that literally spun a dance craze across the nation (and world). With Seth Gamble in the leading role, Kristina Rose and Allie Haze the ladies vying for his sexual attentions, I certainly had some doubts until several minutes into the show where the combination of visual elements, Jeffery Bryan’s music, and Seth’s handling of the character won me over. The little aspects of the movie all combined to remind me of the original more than consider it a copy with all the usual porn aspects tossed in for good effect, the lengthy BTS extras showing me some of the things worked on to make this stand out from previous efforts by the director.
The back cover described the movie like this: “Welcome to Brooklyn 1978. Disco rules, and dancing and "making it" are the only entertainment its blue collar residents can afford. Tony is a working stiff like the rest of his neighborhood, but on the weekends he is king of the disco. He is very content busting moves both on and off the dance floor with the neighborhood girls. That is until he meets his dream girl from Manhattan. Then his life is changed forever.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Lexi Belle, a perky little babe well worth inclusion in any porno made for straight guys, was up first in bed with moper Xander Corvus, the couple kissing while getting hot & heavy. They were all over each other and her purple bikini undies looked best tossed aside, Xander going down on her before she aggressively slobbed his knob like a precious little tramp. That led to some active vaginal riding positions and a pop shot of genetic juice to her crotch, Lexi’s look of satisfaction having milked his balls so thoroughly worth looking at again and again.
Scene Two: Kristina Rose, the curvy babe in a blue dress seen on the right side of the front cover, was up next as she pawed the package of Seth Gamble, his own hands feeling her up as well. Her sheer tan dress hugged her form nicely and she gave him an amazingly heated blowjob, her hand to gland combat increasing the friction as her mouth did most of the work. Her perfect ass looked good in the air even if it seemed out of place in the alleyway, Kristina giving 110% as she passionately displayed how deep her love was orally on the guy. This continued until he shot his wad of population pudding into her mouth and onto her face, Kristina licking the remaining semen off her hand.
Scene Three: Nicki Hunter, wearing a flimsy blue nighty at the kitchen table, was up next with grumpy old Evan Stone, her slip covering up whatever flesh the nighty missed. She gave him a little dance as he felt himself, her fleshy ass munching on her panties before she rolled them down to display her wet pussy. He bent her over and gave her some head (including a rimjob), moving into some vaginal plowing as her dirty talk streamed forward. She then dropped down to blow him while diddling herself, moving into some cowgirl penetration to impale herself as he fingered her ass. They kept it going in other positions until Evan bust a nut of spunk into her face, Nicki another winner in almost every scene she participates in.
Scene Four: Brandy Aniston, a busty brunette with awesome DSLs (dick sucking lips), was up next as she gave former priest Alec Knight, some oral attention on a plush sofa at the club. His shy mannerisms were amusing but her hand free hummer (combined with some separate handjob action), was decently done, her devotion to cock always a treat. He reciprocated a little but it was the active vaginal penetration positions when she was on top of him that warmed my crotch, Brandy as juicy as could be while rubbing her clitoris while riding the pecker. The chemistry was minimal but he gave her what she wished for in the end, banging her until beating off a round of splooge to her face to complete his transformation into a man again.
Scene Five: Vicki Chase, another fetching young brunette, was up next as she blew Johnny Castle in a car, no attempt to place the scene in context since it came out of nowhere at the end of the last conclusion. Still, her boobs were bouncing around and she clearly had some extensive experience slobbing knob, his shaft glistening with her saliva as she continually worked him over while kneeling on the pavement outside of the car (her ass looked great with the dress pulled up too). The pacing was slower than average and some of the editing here struck me as rushed but she was another active vaginal rider of cock, pushing her ass back to meet his thrusts. The finding of a mattress out of nowhere kind of made me want to slap the director on the back of the head a little, none present during the initial portion of the tryst, but the couple ended up boning right up until he jerked off a load of spew to her pretty face, Vicki’s post coital head too short but her sweet tits worth that one last look.
Scene Six: Kristina Rose, now up in her cover dress and wanting revenge, went outside with Dale DaBone and Johnny Castle to have some fun. She sucked them off in turns and rode their cocks silly, Kristina’s ability to transform almost any pair of sexual meat puppets into a tryst worthy of her skills an achievement few of her peers is as successful at. Kristina kept going for cock in her mouth and pussy too, the guys paying her pussy and ass a little tribute at times, just not including anal in what might have made it stand out even more. The editing again looked a bit off this time, at least on occasion, but the smile on her face and elevated respiration rate showed she was into her groove and loving it all; even the glazing of spew all over her face by both men.
Scene Seven: Allie Haze, the lovely young hotty seen on the left side of the front cover, was up last with Seth Gamble, her attempts to make him forget about the recent tragedy in his life apparently working given the solid erection he sported as she aggressively slobbed his knob. While no sword smith like Kristina, she had a different dynamic going for her, as in the original movie, that included a certain degree of sluttiness but also class. The hand assisted hummer was strong and she actively rode him vaginally with some modest taste testing before he rubbed out a round of spunk to her face and head. Her eye contact was superior and but for the out of nowhere ending cut, it was not a bad scene at all.
Summary: Saturday Night Fever XXX by director Jordan Septo for Exquisite was a bit loose in terms of the homage aspects of the production and the sexual trysts not nearly as passionate in most cases as the gonzo works by Septo that I so frequently found favor with, but as an entertaining piece of porn Americana, I found my toe tapping to the music and my cock throbbing to the action so I rated it as Recommended or better depending on your personal tastes in a porn parody. The original was outwardly about the music and dancing but really about the trappings of life for young people, the porn covering a lot of ground in addressing some of the same material (from a porn angle of course), missing a bit as a true homage but surely worth checking out as a stroke flick thanks to the ladies such as Kristina Rose, Allie Haze, and Lexi Belle among others. In short, Saturday Night Fever XXX may not be a truly superior parody in the current understanding of the word but it had a lot of heart, showed some dedication to the original, and was more than “just a porn parody” compared to most titles on the market so give it a look and have some fun.
