The music is on his side.
Classic tale of teen rebellion and repression features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. When teenager Ren and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small town in the West, he's in for a real case of culture shock.

Sometimes you just have to dance even if you're not allowed to. Whilst I quite enjoyed the lively 80s soundtrack I found the story itself to be a bit flat, predictable, and boring. There could have been a better ending as well as I felt that it left a couple of loose ends.

Is this town crazy or what?Best starting credits ever and Ren is one of the best male characters in this kind of a movie. And great hair too!!!
