Blu-ray/DVD Combo ($44.99)

The recent remake of the iconic ’80s kick-off-your-Sunday-shoes classic updates the basic storyline—a group of repressed small-town teens finds release on the dance floor—with a hip new soundtrack of urban thump and country-fried stomp. “Dancing With The Stars” hoofer Julianne Hough brings some real chops to her starring role against newcomer Kenny Wormald, who holds his own as the “new kid in town” who reminds everyone that dancing isn’t just youthful high spirits, it’s a celebration of life that’s even referenced in the Bible. Extra include commentary, several making-of docs, and full music videos for country star Blake Shelton’s version of the movie’s theme song, Big & Rich’s “Fake I.D.,” and Ella Mae Brown’s “Holding Out For A Hero.”
