Yeah you heard me... Footloose is based on a TRUE STORY. Unlikely as it seems, it really happened in the small town of Elmore City, Oklahoma in 1980. My dad, Leonard Coffee a.k.a. Ren McCormack a.k.a. Kevin Bacon...all breakfast items? what a coincidence...lol was a junior at Elmore City High School. This was a minuscule town, with a population of around 750, and there were about 50 or so Baptist churches...so naturally the town's rules and regulations were a bit extreme. There was an archaic town ordinance that banned dancing in public, and it hadn't been abolished. Elmore had <more>
never had a junior/senior prom! So my dad fought the system with the help of his best friend, Rex Kennedy the junior class president , and they were allowed to have a prom for the first time, and Elmore has had prom every year since. I don't know who sold the story, but unfortunately we got no money lol! There were a few things in the movie that didn't actually happen Ariel Moore, Reverend Moore, the book burning, oh and playing chicken on the tractors! , but it is mostly accurate. The kids did have to go to surrounding communities like Pauls Valley and Lindsay to dance and party, and my dad drove the exact same car that Ren drives in the movie! So there you have it, the REAL story of Footloose. If you haven't seen it...watch it!

This is the first movie I ever seen in the theater I must have been 13 or 14 when this came out,, and to me it still holds up well, I haven't seen the remake,, nor do I really want to,, this soundtrack is totally amazing, I had to buy it as soon as it came out,, the music fits almost every scene in the movie,, Kevin Bacon star just took off after this movie,, Lori Singer is really beautiful and did some decent acting,, although her character I didn't care for, Chris Penn did a wonderful job,, but John Lithgow steals the show for me. a young man moves to a town where he doesn't <more>
know anybody , has to make friends, and finds out that the town has a ban on dancing because of a horrendous accident many years ago,, he has to convince to the town that times have changed . excellent picture,, I never get tired of this movie...
Jon Monsarrat review: underrated teen flick (by johnnymonsarrat)
OK, maybe I'm giving in to nostalgia here but I rented "Footloose" recently and thought it was great. Yes, it's definitely a teen flick, similar to "Dirty Dancing", and aging a little now.But the music is great and the plot and themes do as much for me as "Grease" ever did. As teen movies go, it is somewhat original and interesting.Who should see this film:-- Teens with nothing better to do on a rainy day-- People reliving the 1980s, you won't be disappointed tosee this one againI'll give Footloose a 9 out of 10 because it cheered me up on a day I <more>
"A time to mourn and a time to dance" - Ecclesiastes 3:4 (by Wuchakk)
RELEASED IN 1984 and directed by Herbert Ross, "Footloose" chronicles events in the small Western town of Bomont where dancing and loud music have been outlawed because of an accident that killed some kids years earlier. Preacher's daughter Ariel Lori Singer rebels against the legalistic measures while taking liking to a new student from Chicago, Ren Kevin Bacon , whom her father John Lithgow disapproves of because he perceives Ren as a "troublemaker" who wants to change the town laws against dancing.Also on hand are Chris Penn as Ren's "country boy" <more>
pal, Willard, and Sarah Jessica Parker as Ariel's friend, Rusty. Penn's character is real fun and Sarah was a real cutie back in '84.I stayed away from this film because of Roger Ebert's scathing review and the fact that I thought the story was about some big city fop moving to a small town and dancing on the tables of the local high school, etc. I was wrong and so was Ebert . The protagonist, Ren, is no dandy; in fact, he can kick some arse if necessary. And you never see him dancing through the halls of the high school or whatever. He's a professional-class gymnast and his dynamic solo work-out at the factory is simply a matter of blowing off steam, which is a form of healthy venting.Although I stayed away from "Footloose," the film acquired a respectable following and this inspired me to finally view it. I now understand why it's so popular. "Footloose" has that cinematic magic that pulls you in and gives you a good time. This is just a really entertaining movie with an exceptional soundtrack of songs made for the move with no less than six top 40 hits, like the title track by Kenny Loggins and "Holding Out for a Hero" performed by Bonnie Tyler, plus a couple of other significant ditties, e.g. "Bang Your Head" by Quiet Riot.Surprisingly, "Footloose" also has depth and is actually moving. We understand Rev. Shaw Moore's grief, but his rigid law-ism isn't doing his people or town any good. I like how Shaw isn't made out to be the clichéd villain. This is a good man thinking he's doing the right thing for his town, and in many ways he is, but the legalistic spirit he cops is sapping the life out of him, his family, his congregants and his town. Does he have the wisdom to see his error and re-route?BOTTOM LINE: Footloose is easily the best of the Big Three 80's dance movies and actually made significantly more at the domestic box office than "Dirty Dancing" $80 million compared to $65 million . It has heart, a great cast, a superb soundtrack, all-around entertainment and real-life mindfood. It's also based on a true story that occurred in Elmore City, Oklahoma. Actually, there were similar towns with the same laws throughout America and maybe still are . THE FILM RUNS 1 hour, 47 minutes and was shot in areas 30 minutes south of Salt Lake City, on the eastern side of Utah Lake. WRITER: Dean Pitchford.GRADE: A
So dancing has been banned which makes no sense, neither does a chicken race at walking pace but that's not what your paying your money for. This is a prime slice of 80s feel good cheese and thus little thought should be given to reality. This movie did not set out to break box office records or win Oscars which granted shows although if your watching an 80s film about dancing with these expectations I suggest you stop drinking. Aside from this the part where Willard learns to dance is worthy of an academy award, without that scene I doubt I would be the great ballet dancer I am today. I <more>
Sure it's silly but it's an 80s teen musical (by preppy-3)
Teenager Ren Kevin Bacon moves to a small mid Western town with his mom after his parents divorce. It seems the Reverend Moore John Lithgow , of the town's only church, has totally banned rock and roll music from the entire town. He has a daughter named Ariel Lori Singer who is basically a hell-raiser--yet loves her father. Rem decides to stop the ban and bring the town back to life.OK--we're not dealing with reality here at ALL! A town banning rock music entirely is ridiculous and the town only has ONE church? And the game of chicken using tractors was just silly. And don't <more>
get me started on how Bacon, Singer, Chris Penn and Sarah Jessica Parker look WAY too old to be high school students--Singer was THIRTY when she did this! And how the heck did all the kids from the town learn how to dance so quickly? But, as a no brain musical, this does work.The opening sequence alone is great it shows various feet dancing to the title tune . Also the acting helps a lot. Bacon is just great--he doesn't take the movie too seriously and gives out a very good performance. He also has a big dance number to a song called "Never" which is him and THREE different stuntman doing the more unrealistic moves. Singer is too old for her role but she tries. Penn is pretty good as Bacon's best friend--his learning how to dance sequence is a highlight. Parker did this before she was known and she's not bad. Lithgow and Wiest are just great as the Reverend and his wife--Wiest has a great scene where she calmly tells him off and Lithgow wisely does not play the Reverend as a one-note character. You see him trying to understand his daughter and slowly realizing that music isn't bad.So--this is no "Singin in the Rain" but for a 1980s teen musical it's lots of fun. Great songs too. Just turn off your brain and enjoy!
EVERYBODY CUT FOOTLOOSE As we all know 1984 produced a lot of great things. One of the best was "Footloose". Here's my thoughts on this timeless masterpiece which I brought on DVD this week-Most good movies have a great opening and Footloose is no exception. A bunch of feet dancing showcasing the great footwear of the 80's to the soundtrack song "Footloose". Immediately gets you in -Kevin Bacon's character has one of the all-time great movie names: "Ren McCormack" -Funny how this is probably Kevin Bacon's greatest role, maybe only challenged by <more>
"Flatliners". It's amazing how so many actors never repeat their efforts of their first breakthrough movie See Lou Diamond Phillips, Chris Rock and Madonna for starters -Also starring in this movie is one of Hollywood's greatest lesser known brothers, Sean Penn's brother Christopher. He's way better than Dan Swayze or Charlie Murphy. -Kenny Loggins will go down as one of the greatest contributors to movie hit songs ever. Footloose's "Footloose" and Top Gun's "Danger Zone". -This is another one of those movies built around a town's overzealous pastor's. Reverand Shaw John Lithgow is even more intense than that guy in "Chocolat" -Great action scene at the start with Lori Singer car surfing watch the slightly impossible way she gets back in the car -Also look for the great David Hasselhoff 2 second cameo -Great scene where the Rev turns off Lor Singer's ghetto-blaster. Everyone stops talking, eating and dancing. Possibly slightly dramatic -Will Christopher Penn tells us several other towns have also banned dancing. How wasn't that fact used as the premise for heaps more sequels with Ren going from town to town and reviving dance? Each time he'd face a new obstacle. -Ren mentions his love for "Men at Work" and "The Police", yet he only listens in his car to bad 80's electric rock. Strange. -Weird town. Here a face off equals a tractor fight. -One of the funniest moments is when Chuck gets onto his tractor and puts "I need a hero" on on his ghetto-blaster. That would be awesome to do at a basketball game when you sub in. -Another great Dianne Weist performance. That girl can just capture the whole audience when she wants. Underrated actress. -"Moment I regret now"- Christopher Penn's dance sequence to "Let's Hear It For The Boy" although it's a great sequence in the movie -Kevin Bacon's speech to the council was possibly the greatest speech up until that time in cinema history. That is until Sly Stallone raised the bar with his "If I Can Change...." in Rocky 4. Which was then overtaken by Matthew McConaghuey's "Can you see her..." speech in "A Time To Kill"
City boy moves to small town and doesn't fit in. A film based on the same old story that follows the same old lines yet somehow manages to make you enjoy. Nothing new happens in this movie but you will watch with a smile on your face especially during Kev's big drinking/dancing scene. A great representation of what an 80s flick is all about.
