‘Footloose’ Plot Synopsis

In Footloose, when teenager Ren McCormack and his family move from Chicago to a small Midwestern town, he’s in for a real case of culture shock. Although he tries hard to fit in, Ren can’t comprehend he’s living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal. Also in town is Ariel Moore; a troubled but beautiful blonde with a jealous boyfriend, and Bible-thumping minister for a father who is responsible for keeping the town dance-free. While Ren and his classmates want to do away with the dancing ordinance, they have an uphill battle against the repressed townspeople.

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.
