FOOTLOOSE: If the title is familiar, the story surely will be, too. This acceptable update of the popular musical-drama is an almost by-the-numbers revisiting of the tale about a city-bred newcomer (Kenny Wormald) to a town where dancing has been banned. As he tries to get it reinstated, his main nemesis is a minister (Dennis Quaid) whose rebellious daughter (Dancing With the Stars personality Julianne Hough) becomes involved with the outsider. Blake Shelton performs a cover version of the original Kenny Loggins title tune. (Rated PG-13)
JACK AND JILL: If one Adam Sandler isn’t enough for you, here’s your chance to try two at once ... but be forewarned, one wears a wig. It’s the usual brand of Sandler humor as he plays an adman who’s less than thrilled about a holiday visit from his clingy, needy twin sister — and even less pleased when she decides to extend her stay. Katie Holmes plays the wife of Sandler’s male character in the comedy that finds Al Pacino playing himself, and watching Sandler and Pacino match acting styles is almost worth a glance at this. (Rated PG)
