When a city boy moves to a small Midwestern town, he discovers some disappointing news: rock music and dancing have been forbidden by the local government. Determined to bring some '80s-style life into the town, he sets about changing the rules and eventually enlists the help of the daughter of the man responsible for the law. Rousing music, talented young cast, and plenty of trouble make this an entertaining musical-drama.

Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

I am only 19 years old and this is one of my all time favorite movies! Kevin Bacon is at his prime during this time and the story line is good too. A city boy moving to a small town and him having to adapt to the town and the town having to adapt to him. Lori Singer is gorgeous and her character is one of my favorites in the movie. She also goes through a lot of changes throughout the movie and I couldn't believe how young Sarah Jessica Parker was!
