In this remake of the 1984 teenpic, a brooding city kid (Kenny Wormald) moves to a conservative village where dancing's been outlawed. The movie plays like a slightly degraded version of the original: the dialogue is a little lamer, the acting a little poorer. As the small-town pastor who antagonizes the hero, Dennis Quaid is no match for John Lithgow, who nicely telegraphed the anguish over a family tragedy that inspired to the preacher's intransigence; here, Quaid acts like a dick, until he doesn't. The supporting actors--Miles Teller as Wormald's baby-faced sidekick, Ray McKinnon as his adoptive father--are better. And the final dance sequence is as much fun as the one 25 years earlier. With a couple of old favorites preserved, the music has been updated for modern tastes: this time, when the kid blows into his high school parking lot, the soundtrack features Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow." With Julianne Hough. (113 min.)
