No budget was overspent on the opening credits of this film. This is a poignant period piece set in the deepest whitest midwest of America. The daughter of a preacher man has a thing about putting herself in front of moving vehicles and the son of the preacher man was killed playing chicken in a motor vehicle a few years earlier. As a consequence dancing is banned in their town. Following? Enter ... read more

Wow! This is a really big piece of 80's cheesy cake... It is really innocent and Kevin Bacon is not bad at all but honestly, it is not my thingh at all. Definitely an acquired taste.

Description: Classic tale of teen rebellion and repression features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. When teenager Ren and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small town in the West, he's in for a real case of culture shock. Though he tries hard to fit in, the streetwise Ren can't quite ...

"  I really like the movie a lot, especially the film's soundtrack. And as much as I liked Kevin Bacon, in the movie, I really liked John Lithgow and Chris Penn's performances, even more so."

"Footloose" (1984)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Ren McCormack moves from the city to a small town where dancing and rock music have been banned, and his rebellious spirit threatens to change that.

So now I've seen both the two 80s dance movies I've seen get the most attention. :) Perhaps surprisingly, I liked Dirty Dancing, but this one just didn't do much for me.

It's interesting, though, that this movie is the polar opposite of Dirty Dancing in some ways. :) What really made Dirty Dancing was the bond between the two leads, but the romance here is not in the forefront of the story, and it's just kind of mediocre. Ariel is established as a fiercely rebellious spirit before we even meet Ren, so it just seems like they were meant for each other anyway.

Also, I felt the only letdow” read more

Total Film's 80 Greatest 1980s' Movie Moments (80 movies items)

"The Moment: Having successfully overturned a ban on rock ‘n’ roll, Kevin Bacon leads the school prom into the title track. "Hey, hey! What's this I see? I thought this was a party. LET'S DANCE!" Only In The '80s: ...would Bacon be more famous as an actor than a trivia game. If It Was Made Today: A case of life pre-empts website feature, because the remake is already on the way."

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Footloose is a seriously confused movie that tries to do three things, and does all of them badly. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times A cynical and manipulative exercise with little feel for the teen culture it purports to celebrate. - Time Out The goofy breakdancing session at the senior prom that closes Footloose is a poor substitute for either the wildly pleasurable spectacles of past Hollywood musicals or the exaggerated pathos of a great teen film like Rebel Without a Cause. - Jeremy Hei"
