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

Rating: 1.5/4 -- Footloose is a seriously confused movie that tries to do three things, and does all of them badly. 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.
