Lunchtime Movie Review

Footloose (1984)

Episode #29

Paramount Pictures released Footloose to theaters on February 17, 1984. Herbert Ross directs the film which stars Kevin Bacon, Lori Singer, and John Lithgow.

‘Footloose’ Synopsis

Ren is a teenager that moves to a small religious town with his single mom. They move because apparently Ren’s mom can’t afford to live where the white people live in Chicago so she goes to a dying rural town that has banned dancing. This guarantees where there will be no black people in this town to start a new life. And there are literally no black people in this town, find one, I dare you.

Ren is a dancer/gymnast/cool guy, but he is new and as an outsider he has to prove himself the way real men do – playing chicken on tractors. When he gets angry he cools off by stripping, drinking beer, and doing some dancenastics.

Whether it is because he drives a girlie yellow bug while listening to quiet riot, because he wears a skinny tie to school, or because, no one likes a dancing queen, he just doesn’t fit in.

  1. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This is one of the worst films of the 80’s, and I can’t understand how anyone can like this film, let alone would be willing to put up money to remake this piece of shit. Thanks for speaking what has always been on my mind. This movie sucks, and it should be remembered as one of worst films of that era, along with Howard The Duck, Disorderlies, and Gandhi.
