ProI had the movies

ConsBut not any more

Before I write this review I would just like to say I'm not gay. The rumor that Kevin Bacon might be gay started when he stared in this, so any adulation for this cult 80s finger-snapping, toe-tapping classic must surely be bad for my machissimo. Bacons impressive dancing skills (and not the...

Then look no further Footloose released in 1984 is one of my favourite films that I find interesting and more importantly entertaining to watch no matter how many times I watch it.

ProGreat soundtrack and dancing

ConsNot for you if you're not a fan of musicals

Footloose is one of those films I've been meaning to see for quite some time but just never got round to doing so. I've heard most of the songs and amazingly know quite a lot of the words to them but for some strange reason that has often escaped me I have never actually seen the film - that is...

“Footloose (2011) REMAKE!”

ProGreat dancing, better than the original, lively mu...

ConsConfusing as to what time it's set in

It's no secret that the critics, and the general public, seem to hate remakes. What usually happens is a director picks a well loved and well known film of the past and decides that one version of it just isn't enough and goes ahead and ruins it with modern gimmicks. Though I have to say, as far...

ProFabulous Feelgood Film

ConsNone whatsoever!

Finding myself with an evening alone to watch my choice of film on the TV, I browsed through the shelf and saw Footloose, still in it's cellophane and decided it was high time I reminisced to this fantastic feel good film. Ren McCormack and his mum move to small town Beaumont from the city, only...

“I love Kevin Bacon”

published 13/07/2000

Progreat dancing, great characterisation, great vibe

ConsI guess the plots thin but WHO CARES?!?!?!?!

This has to be one of the most underrated classic films of the 80's (although that probably sounds like an insult - it's not!). A youthful Kevin Bacon, who hasn't changed a bit in 15 years and still looks as fresh faced now as he did then. He is also still the most underrated actor in Hollywood...

“It's Time To Cutloose!”

ProAll That Dancing

ConsNot a Very Good Female lead

I fist saw this film when I was flicking through the channels at about 11pm one Saturday evening about a year and a half ago. The first thing that made me stay on the channel was seeing that Sarah Jessica Parker was in it. Being a Sex And The City fan, I decided to watch. As I continued to watch...

Footloose Footloose was a feel good dance film that came out in 1984. Now the 80’s were known for it’s dance films, but Footloose had that little bit of grit and edge, well good lord you had to be 15 and over to watch this movie. You saw bare bum cheeks in this film and a minister slapping his...

Product Information : Footloose (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

This classic tale of teen rebellion and repression features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. When teenager Ren (Kevin Bacon) and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small midwestern town, he's in for a real case of culture shock. Though he tries hard to fit in, the streetwise Ren can't quite believe he's living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal. There is one small pleasure, however: Ariel (Lori Singer), a troubled but lovely blonde--who also has a jealous boyfriend. In fact, it is Ariel's dad (John Lithgow), a Bible-thumping minister, who is responsible for keeping the town dance-free. Ren and his classmates want to do away with this ordinance, especially since the senior prom is around the corner, but only Ren has the courage to initiate a battle. Ren's pent-up frustrations cause a confrontation with Rev. Shaw Moore and the local town council as he takes on the small-town establishment struggling to abolish the outmoded ban and revitalize the spirit of the repressed townspeople. Herb Ross's fast-paced drama is filled with such hit songs as the title track and "Let's Hear It for the Boy."
