Opens Sept. 25
We loved the original movie and TV series, and we still have that song in our heads. But forget about living forever, can Fame survive the jaded early years of the 21st century, when a young person's fame seems more likely to be achieved through reality television than an actual skill set?

On the plus side, Debbie Allen has not left the building.
