Eric’s Bad Movies: ‘Staying Alive’ (1983)

Two discs from Netflix sat on my desk, “Staying Alive” and “Speed 2.” I had planned to do “Speed 2” for this week’s Bad Movie and “Staying Alive” next week. Then it came time to watch one or the other, and I went with “Staying Alive.” Why? Because — and this was literally the reason — it was a half-hour shorter than “Speed 2.” So thank you, “Staying Alive,” for only being 96 minutes long.

Anyway, here it is at, my treatise on “Staying Alive.” (Spoiler: It’s not a very good movie.)
