Footloose portrays the timeless struggle between innocent pleasure and rigid morality, when city-boy Ren McCormick finds himself in an uptight Midwestern town where dancing has been banned.

Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Herbert Ross directed this odd but reasonably effective blend of rock music and didactic melodrama.
- Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Tuesday, January 30, 2007
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, Tuesday, May 20, 2003
Rotten: Footloose is a seriously confused movie that tries to do three things, and does all of them badly.
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Saturday, October 23, 2004
Kevin Bacons shining moment? I dont know but i still watch this one I catch it on TV. Fun movie.

One of the best 80's films! I feel completely in love with Kevin Bacon! A different storyline to which was refreshing! A must see! It's a classic!
