That's the Way I Like It ★★½ 1999 (PG-13)

Homage to disco but set in the East rather than the West. It's 1977 and Sinapore clerk Hock (Pang) wants to win a disco tournament so he can buy a motorcycle. He drops his usual partner (Tang) for the flashier Julie (Francis) and the rivalry between the dance teams gets intense. But Hock just happens to have the spirit of the legendary “Saturday Night Fever” studster himself, Tony Manero (Pace), to give him that extra dance fever. 92m/C VHS, DVD . Adrian Pang, Anna Belle Francis, Dominic Pace, Madeline Tang, Caleb Goh; D: Glen Goei; W: Glen Goei; C: Brian J. Breheny; M: Guy Gross.
