Simple-minded fun with a ridiculous plot. Heavily dependent on catchy numbers and Bacon's charm, but Herbert Ross directs with rather more sophistication than the material deserves, and the above-average cast respond well. It contains two Oscar-nominated songs, Footloose and Let's Hear It For The Boy.
