Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
The music is on his side.
Classic tale of teen rebellion and repression features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. When teenager Ren and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small town in the West, he's in for a real case of culture shock.
You can tell this is an old movie because-
(1).Nice guy Eddie isn't fat.
(2).Sarah Jessica Parker looks less like a horse than usual.
(3).Kevin Bacon isn't talking about vajazzle's and 4G.
(4).Dancing involved forward-rolls wearing a cowboy hat.
(5).Lori Singer still had a career.
(6).Dianne Wiest had no Oscars.
It's a guilty pleasure,and you can't deny that John Cougar Mellencamp's "Hurts So Good" isn't a class tune.
A small town is sent into mourning at the unexpected death of one of its cherished community members, but not even this tragedy can stop the demonic Kevin Bacon from preying on its vulnerable and impressionable youths by indoctrinating them into his satanic cult of song and dance.
"Did you ever get busted for bopping?"
Been busting to re-watch this since Bacon's entrance on Jimmy Fallon.
From the corny truck scene to the joyfully fun final dance, Footloose is pure 80's in the best way possible. It's a time that will never occur again, and for 107 minutes, we are given a brief glimpse into the wonder of that glorious era.
Soundtrack kicks ass, too. So does Bacon. Bacon kicks ass.
"Ecclesiastes assures us... that there is a time for every purpose under heaven. A time to laugh... and a time to weep. A time to mourn... and there is a time to dance."
There is a time to dance, people. When you're feeling low, and life's getting you down, just remember; there IS a time to dance. There is always a time to dance.
Footloose is my most inspirational favorite character.
This is the legend of Footloose. In it, a great hero named Kevin Bacon teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that dancing, well... it's the greatest thing there is.
I know it's a bad movie.. but I love it, what can I do?
Usually I am a sucker for 80s movies. But this was one was cheesy and over the top and just sort of lolled on.
Trama: allucinante. Attori: spontanei ma eccessivi. Canzoni: una è figa, le altre un po' meh. Footloose: il guilty pleasure per eccellenza.
I watched this for the first time last night, and I did not like it at all. Talk about some heavy music for the material, my god. And I just can't ever take Kevin Bacon seriously, I'm sorry.
The most frightening thing about Kevin Bacon's character is not that he dances but that he's 25 years-old and no one questions it when he goes to their high school. (Though apparently, he attended a Utah high school with some "hip" clothes for research before the movie, and he wasn't arrested.)
The movie's pretty much just a long music video and is supposed to be fun but has a gruesome, shocking scene where a guy beats up his girlfriend. And there's some nonsense in here about religion and dancing, but everyone knows that Moses loved to breakdance. This sounded like an absurd 80's movie that would be enjoyable on a couple different levels and it fails to do much of anything, locked onto some boilerplate plot about teenagers and freedom and change and blah blah.
There should be more dancing and fewer subplots.
Energía adolescente ochentera en estado puro. Un clásico
Pd: "todos somos Kevin Bacon"
Kevin Bacon seemed to age throughout this film.
I actually preferred the remake - Kevin Bacon needs to stay off my TV.
