Footloose (1984)

Footloose is a 1984 American musicaldrama film directed by Herbert Ross. It tells the story of Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon), an upbeat Chicago teen who moves to a small town in which, as a result of the efforts of a local minister (John Lithgow), dancing and rock music have been banned.

The film is loosely based on events that took place in the small, rural, and religious community of Elmore City, Oklahoma.[1]

Opener: No No No! Satan is not in these books…oh wait. This is the necronomicon…the devil actually is in this book. oh…and Catcher in the Rye. BURN IT! alright, I’m going home to take a long shower and “judge myself”…I suggest you do the same…aaaah…The Great Gatsby…last one I promise…burny burn burn

Twitter:  Footloose – Like having frosted cakes and a big ole thankgiving turkey at a prom. It may be overkill but bacon makes it better. Now, go home and sit in judgement of yourselves.

less than 45 minutes in and already 3 games of chicken. Should have called this movie Chicken Shit.

This story is going to take so long it’s gonna start on the porch, go through to somebody’s library and then onto the old folks home. Is this the same people that ends with someone really old is listening to the preachers story.

If we go over the state line the we will see how people really party.

“I can’t dance at all… “ how did I get cast for this movie.

Highway tag? is that like Highway chicken?

Warren Beady?

The least hairiest town of all.

I would not suggest learning to dance with Kevin Bacon on the football field, basketball field…or essentially any jock place in high school.

2 slaps in 1 movie. Maybe someone should reconsider some things.

Prom! This was all about a Prom! somebody is probably going to get pregnant. Also, I thought this movie was about a guy who cut his foot off.

What kind of prom has frosted cake and turkey…a big whole turkey.

No dancing baby. No dancing on the dance floor.

In what world can a few high schooler dancers kick some roughneck asses?
