  • Footloose (PG-13)

    In this remake of the 1984 teenpic, a brooding city kid (Kenny Wormald) moves to a conservative village where dancing's been outlawed. more...
  • Bran Nue Dae (PG-13)

    Adapted from a stage show, this Australian musical-comedy seems like a project for which everyone involved had ideas but no one had veto power. more...
  • Nine (PG-13)

    Not to be confused with Shane Acker's dismal animation 9, this is another razzmatazz musical adapted by Rob Marshall (Chicago) from a Broadway show. more...
