Good Movie With A Fantastic Soundtrack To Match...,
This review is from: Footloose  [DVD] (DVD)
Having read other reviewers, i cant help but laugh at some of the gormless reviews i cant paste name's all i can say is look for 1 star reviews left by names that contain 'lord in there title lol i read all the reviews and i think this person has an obsession with the 1 star click funcion as all his reviews are the same, i cant tolerate ignorance be gone with u lol now everyone is entitled to there opinions but some people are just stupid lol anyway back to the movie:-
Fundamentalist minister Shaw Moore played by(John Lithgow) has spearheaded a ban on dancing in his community. The local teenagers, including Moore's daughter Ariel who needs to gain a few pounds bless her heart played by (Lori Singer), chafe against the restriction, but there isn't much that they can do about it within city limits. Enter Chicago expatriate Ren (Kevin Bacon), who likes to dance and doesn't like to take orders. On its surface just another kids vs. adults opus, Footloose transcends its artistic limitations, and the result is one of the most exhilarating films of the early 1980s. The mid-film highlight involving two speeding cars and a daredevil Kevin Bacon is Great. Best of all, the "stock" characters are wholly believable: even John Lithgow isn't a double-dyed villain, but a loving family man sincerely concerned about the moral well-being of his flock. ~ all in all this film may be cheesy, but to the 80s fans like myself we like the 80s cheese.. and this is a feel good movie, and if ur thinking about buying this film then i would think about purchasing the fantastic sountrack also..
