ages 12+ | 84 % Say It's Worth Your Time

Moving in from Chicago, newcomer Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon) is in shock when he discovers the small Midwestern town he now calls home has made dancing and rock music illegal. As he struggles to fit in, Ren faces an uphill battle to change things. With the help of his new friend, Willard Hewitt (Christopher Penn), and defiant teen Ariel Moore (Lori Singer), he might loosen up this conservative town. But Ariel's influential father, Reverend Shaw Moore (John Lithgow), stands in the way.

    "I just don't know that I believe in everything you believe in. But I believe in you." The original Footloose gets better the older I get. There is some limited sexuality and rebellion by the daughter of Reverend Shaw. Kevin Bacon has some serious moves! The tractor race and punch dance will forever be memorable to me. Don't waste your time with the remake, watch the classic!

    The remake of this original classic was so unnecessary and muddled with over the top sexuality. There's simply no beating Kevin Bacon in the role of Ren. I originally saw this movie in Florida. Imagine my surprise years later when I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, to find that this movie was filmed in Lehi, just down the road from our home. This movie taught me at a young age that you can be cool even if you dance and do gymnastics. :-)

    In the grand tradition of 80's films, this was mis-rated. It should definitely be PG-13 with all the language and such. However, it's a fun film, a classic! If you can watch it on a Clear Play, do so. It's a great film.

    It goes without saying, that any movie that builds it's premise around a high school dance will certainly be out dated in a few short years. But this movie was pretty big stuff in it's day, and still has it's impact--whether you know it or not--on ours... See Full Review

    Talk about a great show! Footloose is one of the all time classic movies around. The remake doesn't come close to giving this movie the justice it deserves. Kevin Bacon's performance is timeless, especially the scene of him punch dancing out his anger. The movie has excellent music from the 80's in it! There are a few scenes of teenagers using alcohol and there is a good amount of talking about sex. This is a movie that I would highly recommend you taking the time to enjoy.

    The greatest 80's movie to date! great dancing scenes, filmed in good Ole Lehi UT, kevin bacon at his prime! but still a great themed movie that teaches you to be yourself and go for what you what in life!

    One of the classics, the re-make was pretty good but in a lot of cases the originals are better!

    The original and best Footloose. This is an entertaining movie, though if you're looking for an airtight plot and oscar-worthy acting, this isn't your movie. It's got a classic soundtrack, some great dancing, and John Lithgow does a great job as the Reverend Shaw Moore. It has some mature themes, some violence (mostly fistfighting), language and some rear nudity. Overall, it's a good movie and worth your time.

    Definitely a movie for the mature crowd but overall not a bad movie to see.

    Fun movie but really sensuous. Probably not for teenagers who you are trying to teach modesty to.

    I saw the original when it first came out and loved it, but I found the remake even better.

    While they were following the same storyline, they put much more trash in it than it needed or I wanted to see. I walked out.
