About the Movie

Footloose jumps with spirit, dazzling dance numbers and an electrifying musical score. It portrays the timeless struggle between innocent pleasure and rigid morality, when city-boy Ren McCormick (Kevin Bacon) finds himself in an uptight Midwestern town where dancing has been banned. Ren revolts with best friend Willard (Chris Penn) and the minister's daughter (Lori Singer). A treasury of Top 10 songs - Kenny Loggins "Footloose," Shalamar "Dancing In The Sheets," Deniece Williams "Let's Hear It For The Boy," Bonnie Tyler "Holding Out for A Hero," and the Footloose love theme, "Almost Paradise."

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Like the rest of today's video-happy teen-age entertainments, Footloose doesn't expect to be watched closely or taken seriously. It wants to fill the screen with catchy music and pretty kids, and this it certainly accomplishes. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Essential to the result is young Kevin Bacon, superb in the lead part. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: "Footloose" turns out to be a sort of Boy Scout version of "Flashdance," a carefully toned-down, overly respectable piece of schmaltz ... – Kathleen Carroll, New York Daily News, Feb 17, 2016

Rotten: Footloose is a seriously confused movie that tries to do three things, and does all of them badly. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

This is the best movie ever!!!!!! Please when can we buy? How can anybody not like it?

Great movie!

I was at my friend's house & she asks me if I want to see Footloose. And I'm thinking how much I hate old musicals, but I watch it anyways. To my surprise it was a really good movie, Footloose is a classic :)
