Teenager Ren MacCormack sends ripples through Bomont, a small Midwestern town that could stand some shaking up, when he arrives from Chicago with his mother, Ethel, to settle with her relatives. The adults tend to view him with suspicion as a possible contaminant from the outer world. Some of his male peers eye him as a threat, and most of the girls just plain eye him.

It's a tough time for Ren, whose father deserted him and his mother, leaving them financially and emotionally strapped. But Bomont is a new setting, a place for beginnings, and Ren intends to give it every chance. He finds that the town is autocratically run by the local minister, Rev. Shaw Moore, who single-handedly manipulates the community sentiment and has had a hand in the banning of certain books, all rock 'n' roll music, public dancing and numerous other enjoyments that Ren had taken for granted in Chicago.

From the moment he arrives in Bomont, Ren is harassed and ostracized. He immediately finds himself in conflict with the community, in a unique relationship with the minister's free-spirited daughter Ariel and involved in a feud with her bullying boyfriend Chuck. His greatest ally turns out to be Willard, a good-natured schoolmate, slow to wit but quick to fight. Eventually, Ren galvanizes the youth of Bomont to confront the town's narrow-mindedness, and, in doing so, he forces Rev. Moore to re-examine his own relationships with his daughter, with his congregation and with his wife of 20 years.

 "I thought this was a party. LET'S DANCE!"

Kevin Bacon takes on small town America with the power of dance! Aided by a brick-sized walkman and a Kenny Loggins title song, our light footed rebel pouts, struts, and bangs surfaces hard with his hands to bring bad Eighties dancing to a bunch of hicks. While the rest of the world were transfixed by breakdancing, this Wayne Sleep is dragging his new friends kicking and screaming into the Fifties.
Even better our Kev plays chicken with tractors, smokes, and dances out his anger in beautifully lit factories; of course smashing against the hood of his car while drinking a brew to prove how angry he is.
Still Kev beats the authorities with the aid of Sarah Jessica Parker(with even less style than she has now), the girl from Fame, and Chris Penn who he teaches to dance in an hilarious montage. And what does he succeed in winning for the young teens? A party so hideous your nan would shun it.
So is it any good? Of course it is-a guilty pleasure to die for. Let's Hear It For The Boy!

 FEEL GOOD 80'S FLICK

Im a child of the 80's and love all things 80's and this suprb feel good 80's hit is simply brilliant.
Yes it is outdated now but you cant help but sing along with the amazing 80's soundtrack which is loaded with massive hits from the 80's.
Kevin Bacon is great in the lead role that rebels against the towns dancing and music ban to lead the senior class into their first senior dance in over 5 years.
This is a must for anyone who loves 80's films or if you like Dirty Dancing and Flashdance then you will love Footloose.

 Footloose - it's so 1984

What can I say? If you're a child of the '80s and remember seeing this for the first time at the cinema or (like me) a couple of years later on video, this DVD is important for nostalgic purposes. This obviously appeals to 30-something women because of the now dated dance scenes, and I defy anyone falling into that category to resist wanting to watch the whole thing again when the credits start rolling at the end.

In response to a previous review, there is a special edition version of Footloose but it's only available from America. Luckily, thanks to my obsession with this film and a thoughtful husband, I own one!

 Fantastic
