Product Description

Footloose (Special Collector's

Amazon.ca

Director Herbert Ross (The Turning Point) pulled a winning movie out of this almost self-consciously archetypal tale of teenage rock rebellion. Kevin Bacon stars as a hip city kid who ends up in a Bible-belt town after his parents divorce. An ill fit for a conservative community where rock is frowned upon and dancing is forbidden, Bacon's character rallies the kids and takes on the establishment. Between a good cast really embracing the drama of Dean Pitchford's screenplay, and Ross's imaginative, highly charged way of shooting the dance numbers, you can get lost in this all-ages confection, and you won't even mind Kenny Loggins's bubbly pop. Bonuses include one of John Lithgow's best performances (a bit reminiscent of Jimmy Stewart), and Christopher Penn (who sure doesn't look the same anymore) as a good-natured hick who learns to boogie. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless movie June 23 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a movie that has been around a while now, but it is still a great movie to watch. One thing that I really enjoyed about this DVD was the extras on it. It has interviews with some of the actors and creators that revealed some fascinating information about this movie and it's production. This movie was very cheap to make (compared to other movies of the day) and surprisingly this is based on a TRUE story! They even show the original town where this story was based on just to name a few things on this. It's well worth buying, if you loved this movie, you'll certainly want to own this, especially for the extras, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my personal favorite movies from the '80s June 1 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I was watching VH1 over the holiday weekend and came across a showing of "Footloose". "Footloose" is one of my favorite movies from the '80s. I actually saw the film in the theater with some friends. We wanted to see "Splash" but tickets for that movie was out so we settled on "Footloose". At the time I thought the premise of the film of a hip teenager rebelling against an ultra conservative town with its anti-rock music and dancing rules, was a bit farfetched, if not silly. I still do to this very day but I like this movie more now than I did back twenty years ago. It's amazing how much Christopher Penn has changed since then. Not to mention Sarah Jessica Parker (still with her "Square Pegs" look), and Lori Singer. Kevin Bacon remains the same today. John Lithgow gave me one of his best performances I had ever seen before that godawful sitcom he starred in years later. Dianne Wiest was also good in the movie. The stars of the film I thought were Kevin, Lori, Sarah, and Christopher. The music was great. I love Bonnie Tyler's "I Need a Hero" and John (Cougar) Mellencamp's "Hurt So Good". "Footloose" was one of those movies where music and film went well together. To the reviewer who thought this film deserved a PG-13 rating...um? Hello? There was no PG-13 back in 1984. It was either PG or R. I would hardly qualify "Footloose" as being R-rated material. Compare "Footloose" by today's movies, it is a tame comparison. Despite being cheesy at times, "Footloose" remains a blast to watch.

Footloose is a rock rebellion story about a big city kid (Kevin Bacon) who moves into a deeply religious small community that has banned all manner of things, like rock and roll and dancing. Bacon's character is determined to change peoples minds about the 'dangers' of rock music and gyrations of the body.
The movie is rich and paradigmatic of the rebellious teen genre. Handsome people, great music, impatient screen shots, and a plot that includes some dynamism and general excitement.
There are two trouble spots, however. For one, I can't quite understand why Kevin Bacon's character falls for the preacher's daughter. Shy of any redeemable character traits, she is a crass, rude, obnoxious, and terribly immature young lady.
Agreed, she has a troubled life, and throughout the movie you do get hints of what she may be like in the future. There is clearly a sense that she will stop living through the rebellion of others, and will grow as a person. Nevertheless, other than her beauty, it is difficult to understand why Bacon's character falls for her.
The other trouble is with the big defense scene, where a case is made for allowing the teens to have a prom dance party. The defense is structured entirely out of a biblical perspective--since they danced to celebrate and give thanks to God, so, too, should the kids be allowed to celebrate by dancing. This is smart because the town is a Bible-thumping town, but the writers could have added a defense of dancing on grounds other than religious (freedom of expression, for instance).
Other than that, the movie is fabulous. Great dance scenes, and music that still inspires and is catchy many years later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teens Prevailing Over Adults Oct. 30 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This is another story of teenagers fighting the adult establishment and winning, though in the case of Footloose they skirted an anti-dancing law by moving their dance to another municipality. Sarah Jessica was beautiful in this film, and she really should have stuck to acting (rather than voicing her opinions about anything in the real world). Kevin and Chris were good, John Lithgow was terrific, and Lori was absolutely captivating.
One thing, though: Dancing had been banned for several years in this town -- but when the kids finally arranged to have a dance, everyone knew exactly how to dance... and I don't mean the fox-trot. These young folks were Olympic gymnasts, flipping around and break-dancing and hip-hopping to beat the band. The only thing I can figure is that they secretly took lessons during all those years dancing was prohibited, smuggling in the necessary instructors and concealing all of the required conditioning exercises. Well, he IS testing us! Every, every day he is testing us!!

Hollywood's love affair for dance and music movies has continued unabated ever since Fred and Ginger waltzed their way across the screen in the 1930s. In FOOTLOOSE, director Herbert Ross has successfully melded several movies in one: teen filled angst against society, dancing as a way of life, and the fitting in of a loner. Kevin Bacon is immensely appealing with his boyish good looks and bouncing feet as Ren, a teen who has moved with his family from the big city to the small town. In the past, Hollywood has usually portrayed the small town citizens as closed-minded hicks who somehow fear that the city slicker in their midst will expose their hollowness for all to see. But in this case, the only static that Ren receives is from the jealous boyfriend of a girl who likes Ren's big city ways. Christopher Penn starts out as one of those hicks who seems to dislike Ren, but soon finds that he has more in common with him than with his other oafish friends. Penn is particulary appealing as the left-footed fish out of water who needs to learn how to dance and sees that Ren can teach him that old one and a two. But it is the charismatic Kevin Bacon who carries this picture on his smile and feet. When Ren learns that dancing has been outlawed in his new small town home, he immediately begins a crusade to reinstall the legitimacy of rock and roll music. FOOTLOOSE has many scenes that showcase the talent of the cast's dancing. Bacon has most of the best scenes but Penn steals the show with his improved bumping, then strutting steps. Lori Singer is appealing as Bacon's female lead. John Lithgow as Singer's Bible thumping, rock and roll hating preacher father, exemplifies the hate-Elvis sector that ruled much of America's small town mentality in the fifties. Read more ›
