US Mid­west Bi­ble Belt preacher

John Lith­gow thinks danc­ing makes teenagers bad and bans rock ’n’ roll, but things change when Chicago kid Kevin Ba­con ar­rives on the scene... This 1980s teen mu­si­cal re­ally comes to life with its foot-tap­ping num­bers and the plot is a silo of corny fun. Lori Singer plays Lith­gow’s way­ward daugh­ter and Christo­pher Penn is like­able as the new buddy who Ba­con teaches to dance – to the hit song Let’s Hear It For The Boy – in the movie’s best se­quence. Dir: Her­bert Ross 1984, 12, 130min
