This is essentially a souped up Elvis Presley-style musical with a daft plot to match, as free-spirited teenager Kevin Bacon fights small-minded minister John Lithgow in a small town where rock 'n' roll and dancing are illegal. Bacon, Lori Singer, Dianne Wiest, Chris Penn and Sarah Jessica Parker perform wonders with a story that hits the drivel button and becomes overly sentimental far too frequently. While Kenny Loggins may not be the first composer you'd think of to write songs for a rock musical, his tunes aren't half bad (the title track got to number six in the UK charts), and the energy raised during the finger-snapping dance numbers is surprisingly infectious.
