leaves the big city of Chicago and comes to live in a small town with his family. He’s shocked by the change of culture, but is truly appalled when he learns that the town forbids music and dancing under the stricture of the local conservative minister (John Lithgow). Youthful rebellion is inspired when Bacon realizes that senior prom is around the corner and he has every intention of enjoying it to the fullest. He and the minister’s daughter () pair up to take on the town’s strict morality in a bouncy, guilt-free musical that is brimming over with energy and enjoyment. The soundtrack still sounds good, and Bacon became a symbol of teenage liberation with this great hit movie.
