It was a gift and the person said they really enjoyed it. I dont know what else to say.
Not quite as good as the precursor

"One shouldn't expect too much from what was a made-for-tv miniseries, with no real big names, but altogether it was a very good involving story. It followed the course of the decade from start to finish very nicely, encorporating in music and actual footage of the historic events together with the respective storylines of the four main characters. Still, it just doesn't seem quite as gripping and involving as the prior movie 'The '60s,' where there seemed to be more character development instead of, like this movie, seeming to focus a bit more on a lot of historic happenings and making as many of them a part of their lives as possible, instead of just choosing ones that would have naturally fit with whom the characters were. The plot seems to suffer a little because of this. There also seemed like there were more gaps of time than in 'The '60s,' with a few years passing between events a couple of times without letting the viewer know what year it was now supposed to be or how much time had passed."

"I found this movie along with another titled The '60's in a bargin bin at a swap meet. I paid 2 dollars for both. I enjoyed them so much I would have paid full price. I wondered if there was a third movie titled The '80's but Studio 54 was as close as I could find. Being born too late to remember the 60's, The '70's actually did spark memories for me, specifically cult fanatics and all the runaway teens who joined them. Vinessa Shaw is an absolute doll, I've had the hots for her since Hocus Pocus. She really needs to be a lead character hero a la Lara Croft.... Rent all 3, The 60's, The 70's and Studio 54 and spend a weekend revisiting 3 decades of excessive excess."
Better than everyone's giving it credit for!

"Though this movie would definitally not be a blockbuster if it was released in a movie theatre rather than on tv; that doesn't make it any less of a movie!
I think this movie was great! I loved the music; and the cast, as well. Anyone who is going to doubt this movie before watching it is CRAZY! It's really a great movie; and teaches people (particularly teenagers) things that they would normally be bored by (i.e. the Watergate scandal)! And I think that anything that gets kids interested in the history of the U.S. is wonderful.
I think this is a great movie for people of ALL AGES, and I would definitally recommend it to anyone!"
