Kevin Bacon leapt to stardom in this stand-up-and-cheer film that bursts with hit songs and dance. Ren McCormick (Bacon) is a big-city kid looking for some fun. But, after Ren moves to sleepy Midwest, he finds himself in the town that fun forgot! When Ren hears that town's uptight minister (John Lithgow) has placed a ban on dancing, he decides to take a stand. With his best friend (Chris Penn) and the minister's rebellious daughter (Lori Singer), Ren wages a fight for the right to shake, rattle and roll -- a campaign that will have the town in an uproar...and the kids dancing in the street.
