Product Description

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.

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.

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.

Devised as a lengthened music video, Footloose was a film filled with catchy music, good-looking stars and a story that emphasized the relationship between the Hollywood movie and pop music. The story is about a teen from Chicago named Ren (Kevin Bacon) who moves to a small town in the Midwest and just wants to be accepted by the residents. Not long after moving there, he realizes that the religious congregation and the residents have outlawed dancing and rock music because of the evils that are associated with it. His quest, through the duration of the movie is to make dancing and rock music legal again and to hold a school dance for himself and the seniors of his high school. He has a lot of big city hangs ups to overcome as he tries to fit in to small town life. Ultimately he accomplishes what he set out to do and arranges to have the dance, but across the county line in another town.
This type of musical began with 'Saturday Night Fever' and continued the love of the Hollywood movie with a pop music soundtrack. It was not a musical typical to those of the '30s, '40s and '50s where the actors sang the songs, but rather referred to the actions of what was going on in the scene. Because of this, the film used diegetic sound, a term for saying that the film shows where the source of the music is coming from. There is always a radio or boom box present to add music to the scene and pinpoint the location of the music. For example, in one scene where Ren and Ariel's (Lori Singer) bully boyfriend Chuck (Jim Youngs) are having a tractor "chicken" contest (where one tractor races towards the other and the one who pulls out first is the chicken). Before the race starts, Chuck turns on the tape in the boom box and the song "Holding Out for a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler plays.

I saw this movie in the theatre on opening night. I still enjoy watching it. The acting in this movie is great, and the storyline is top notch as well. I think the movie represents the attitudes in small town America as they were. I know of many cases in real life that were a lot like this plot, but in real life the protagonists faired worse than Kevin Bacon. I have heard a lot of bad reviews about this movie from people who watch it today. Mostly because it is a "white" film with almost no racial diversity considering the subject matter. Well, you have to look at the social and cultural context in which the film was made to begin with. I happened to live in a small colorado town during my teen years and HELLO we only had 1 black family in the town. That was reality, as it was in many small towns. And as for the music, mind you, this was about 4 years before the forthcoming of the rudimentary forms of rap and hip hop. Micheal Jackson had more white fans than black, and most blacks listened to rock and roll. You cannot judge this film by modern standards and do it justice. I think that if you keep an open mind you will enjoy this film a great deal.
