I know what you’re saying, Footloose isn’t a sports movie? Well my friends 4 words, Kevin Bacon Male Gymnast. Throw a few random football scenes and interpretive dance, and I think we have something that could be seen on ESPN8 THE OCHO.
One kid. One town. One chance.
When teenager Ren (Kevin Bacon) and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small town in the West, he’s in for a real case of culture shock and local towns folk with bad dancing abilities. Though he tries hard to fit in with the simple life, the streetwise Ren can’t quite believe he’s living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal. WTF right? There is one small, yet curvy pleasure, however: Ariel (Lori Singer), a troubled but lovely blonde with a jealous redneck boyfriend. and a Bible-thumping minister played by Harry from the Hendersons, who is responsible for keeping the town dance-free, YES, Dance free!Ren and his classmates want to do away with this insane ordinance, especially since the senior prom is around the corner, but only Ren has the courage and big heart to initiate a battle to abolish the outmoded ban and revitalize the spirit and kindred of the repressed townspeople and high school kids that want to bump and grin, R Kelly Style.
Here is Number 5-Footloose (1984)
Maybe the most Ass kickin, but very gay dance montage I have ever seen. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted to be Kevin Bacon after seeing this, but I would have tamed a few of the moves. Enjoy
Tomorrow, number 4….Vision Quest
