Description

Craig Brewer directs this remake of the 1984 teen musical. Kenny Wormald stars as Ren, a troubled city kid who moves to a small town in the deep South. There he is shocked to discover that modern music and dancing have been banned by religious extremists presided over by hellfire-and-brimstone preacher Reverend Shaw (Dennis Quaid). Joining forces with best buddy Rusty (Ziah Colon) and the preacher's headstrong daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough), Ren sets out to defy authority, turn up the music and kick the town into the 21st century.

Synopsis
This classic tale of teen rebellion features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic, touching performances. When teenager Ren (Kevin Bacon) and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small midwestern town, he's in for a real case of culture shock. Though he tries hard to fit in, the streetwise Ren can't quite believe he's living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal. There is one small pleasure, however: Ariel (Lori Singer), a troubled but lovely blonde--who also has a jealous boyfriend. In fact, it is Ariel's dad (John Lithgow), a Bible-thumping minister, who is responsible for keeping the town dance-free. Ren and his classmates want to do away with this ordinance--especially since the senior prom is around the corner--but only Ren has the courage to initiate a battle. Ren's pent-up frustrations cause a confrontation with Rev. Shaw Moore and the local town council as he takes on the small-town establishment struggling to abolish the outmoded ban and revitalize the spirit of the repressed townspeople. Herb Ross's fast-paced drama is filled with such hit songs as the title track and "Let's Hear It for the Boy" and is a classic of 1980s Brat Pack cinema.
Notes
David Hasselhoff makes a cameo appearance in a diner scene.

"What did David do? What did David do? What did David do? David danced. Leaping and dancing before the Lord. There was a time for this law, but not anymore. This is our time to dance."--Ren (Kevin Bacon)

The hit movie was later turned into a successful Broadway musical.
