. Kevin Bacon is totally cool and a must see for Footloose. But, as a no brain musical, this does work. Insurance to eliminate outdated and restoration i?? Sad to know he doesn't have the fan-following that he truly deserves. Dianne Wiest is the reasonable mom who acts as referee between dad and daughter.
Yes, it's a bit of a time capsule, but it's still all in good fun. And a Bible-thumping minister, who is responsible for keeping the town dance-free. Incidentally, I was going to review another mid-80s film - The Breakfast Club - but I've decided to put that pan on the back burner and cook with this one. Bacon is just great--he doesn't take the movie too seriously and gives out a very good performance. Even if I am torn between wanting to cringe and dance when I hear the theme! The style is reminiscent of a whole host of other '80's teen flicks, but only a handful are better. Who should see this film: -- Teens with nothing better to do on a rainy day -- People reliving the 1980s, you won't be disappointed to see this one again I'll give Footloose a 9 out of 10 because it cheered me up on a day I needed it. You just can't dance over-there! When teenager Ren McCormack and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small Midwestern town, he's in for a real case of culture shock.
Footloose has awesome sound track , is full of great songs!!! Indeed, this boy seems to live to dance and he's immensely likable. That would be awesome to do at a basketball game when you sub in. John Lithgow is the preacher who serves as Bacon's arch nemesis; Lori Singer is the preacher's daughter who has a hankering for the new dangerous kid. It has some memorable moments, especially when Bacon dances his guts out or even the penultimate portions that focus on John Lithgow. Kevin Bacon is the new kid in town who wants the ban lifted. Kevin Bacon is the tough city kid stuck in some podunk Midwest town where dancing has been outlawed.
Camille is a courtesan in Paris. This is the first movie I ever seen in the theater I must have been 13 or 14 when this came out,, and to me it still holds up well, I haven't seen the remake,, nor do I really want to,, this soundtrack is totally amazing, I had to buy it as soon as it came out,, the music fits almost every scene in the movie,, Kevin Bacon star just took off after this movie,, Lori Singer is really beautiful and did some decent acting,, although her character I didn't care for, Chris Penn did a wonderful job,, but John Lithgow steals the show for me. This is a prime slice of 80s feel good cheese and thus little thought should be given to reality. But Ren's getting a hard time from everyone because of his fun loving nature, but he makes friends with a wanna be cow boy, Willard. Herbert Ross's 'Footloose' is about a small town where rock-and-roll has been banned. And how the heck did all the kids from the town learn how to dance so quickly? No one can do a perfect justice to a wonderful story.
Ren's life changes when he moves to a small town where rock-n-roll and dancing are criminal activities. With the help of his new friend, Willard Hewitt Christopher Penn , and defiant teen Ariel Moore Lori Singer , he might loosen up this conservative town. There is a lot of ham on the screen and corn in the flaky dialog. Most of the cast do great things with their roles. Maybe this is what inspired me to finally give-in and view it. The story is just so much fun and original, you just fall in love with Ren McCormick from the start.
I liked how this wasn't necessarily your typical musical, it just had an awesome soundtrack with the movie. Every minister who is in charge i?? Camille was first done in 1936 with Greta Garbo and Robert Taylor, this is not a first rendition. And come on, admit it, you know you like the music. The resulting documentary, interspersed with powerful performances of Tap's pivotal music and profound lyrics, candidly follows a rock group heading towards crisis, culminating in the infamous affair of the eighteen-inch-high Stonehenge stage prop. 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.
Parker did this before she was known and she's not bad. Of course we'll always question how the kids just managed the skills of dancing, you'll see what I mean when you watch it, but it's all good. Crucially, the music is actually pretty good too! As he struggles to fit in, Ren faces an uphill battle to change things. Description Classic tale of teenage rebellion and repression features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. He has a daughter named Ariel Lori Singer who is basically a hell-raiser--yet loves her father. Soon he also becomes the preacher's rebellious daughter, Ariel's love interest.

As well as Bacon, the film has Lori Singer, the obligatory love interest , and John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest as her parents. Everyone stops talking, eating and dancing. It's charming, it's funny, it's just a blast to watch, and it's an 80's classic. Books don't alway's translate well to screen.
Synopsis Classic tale of teenage rebellion and repression features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. You know, it's puzzling that this movie would leave me unsated and hungry for something else. And the game of chicken using tractors was just silly. It seems the Reverend Moore John Lithgow , of the town's only church, has totally banned rock and roll music from the entire town. The funny thing is that I performed Footloose in my high school, it's now like 5 years later and I realized when I bought this film yesterday that I had never seen the movie. Publicly with a jealous boyfriend. Possibly slightly dramatic -Will Christopher Penn tells us several other towns have also banned dancing.
It's for the folks who like to skip dinner and go right to the cream- filled finale, and though not quite evil, it's as silly as can be. I also like how Shaw isn't made out to be the clichéd villain. When teenager Ren McCormack and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small Midwestern town, he's in for a real case of culture shock. And in my opinion, no one can beat the absolutely wonderful chemistry and passion between Garbo and Taylor either. I also like the depth. This is a typical underdog film with all the tired clichés: the bad guys end up with egg on their faces; the town finally wakes up and smells the coffee; the protagonists eventually turn on the juice; etc.
