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?
"See, this is our time to dance. It is our way of celebrating life. It's the way it was in the beginning. It's the way it's always been. It's the way it should be now."- Ren.
One of my favourite childhood movies....and i still love it today! I like it's old corniness and big moral tale. It also boasts a great soundtrack!!
NB: Way better than the dire re-make, imho.
Not up my alley.
The line that made me watch this:
"We're Kevin Bacon."
Finally catching up on this classic from my youth.
It's a fun, adorable film... and I want to give it a big hug.
It's one of those great eighties films that has major archetypes and an overt theme, but never quite trips into cliche territory.
Kevin Bacon uses Dance on Fundamentalism! It's super effective.
This film may look a bit dated, but it is pretty darn fun. It's simple really, if you have any problems in life, just dance them away. Ooooooo, but the man is trying to shut us down. Out with your evil music, out with your evil dancing. Kevin Bacon saves the day, Yay!
Kevin Bacon fights the ban on fun and cures cancer with his moves.
Divertido film de los ochentas. Se entiende como el soundtrack fue de los más vendidos. Historia sencilla pero efectiva. Obviamente su más grande error es casi ser un videoclip.
Starlord may think this was a signature hero moment for Kevin Bacon but boy, this snoozer sure does look dated, making it even worse than it was the first time.
I'm a little bit ashamed of this but Footloose is part of my Box Office Champions Challenge. I'm ashamed because I'd never seen it. What? A child of the 80s who's not seen Footloose? What the fuck is wrong with me? Basically I wasn't into dancing until I was into drinking and when the 80s finished I was 14. So this one slipped me by and somehow I'm only correcting that now.
Before we get into the numbers; Footloose answers two questions. 1. Have you ever been so angry you drive to an abandoned factory and angry danced until being interrupted by a preacher's daughter (hell, yes). 2. Have you ever wondered how awesome it'd be if Chris Penn did…
