Rating: 2.5/4 -- "Footloose" turns out to be a sort of Boy Scout version of "Flashdance," a carefully toned-down, overly respectable piece of schmaltz ... Full Review

Herbert Ross directed this odd but reasonably effective blend of rock music and didactic melodrama. Full Review

...[Bacon is] superb....Dianne Wiest is terrific...

There's a plot that would have been dated in the '50s. Hokey doesn't begin to describe the inanity, the tedium, the utter lack of originality in Dean Pitchford's script. Full Review

Essential to the result is young Kevin Bacon, superb in the lead part. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- For such an iconic dance movie, Footloose is an odd bird of a movie with surprisingly little dancing. Full Review

Product Description:

This classic tale of teen rebellion features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic, 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" and is a classic of 1980s Brat Pack cinema.

Plot Synopsis:

Kevin Bacon stars in this classic tale of teen angst and repression, combining terrific dance choreography with a sizzling soundtrack. Ren (Bacon) is a streetwise city teenager who moves to a conservative rural community where rock music and public dancing are prohibited. Together with the local minister's daughter (Lori Singer) the young man struggles to revitalize the spirit of the townspeople.
