Footloose (1984) review
Call me crazy, but I loved this movie.
PLOT:Ren McCormick (Kevin Bacon) is a teenage kid who has just moved to a small town where dancing has been abolished and named unholy by the town's priest, Shaw (John Lithgow), and because the kid wants to play his music and dance, he is labeled as a troublemaker and a punk by the whole town. With the help of his new friend, Willard (Chris Penn) and the preacher's daughter, Ariel (Lori Singer), they try to get the town to cut loose and let the senior class have a dance. The plot is a cheesy-yet-interesting idea executed to the feel of an 80s flick.
