"Footloose" turns out to be a sort of Boy Scout version of "Flashdance," a carefully toned-down, overly respectable piece of schmaltz ...

Essential to the result is young Kevin Bacon, superb in the lead part.
January 30, 2007
Herbert Ross directed this odd but reasonably effective blend of rock music and didactic melodrama.
January 26, 2006
A cynical and manipulative exercise with little feel for the teen culture it purports to celebrate.

Footloose is a seriously confused movie that tries to do three things, and does all of them badly.

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.

There's a plot that would have been dated in the '50s. Hokey doesn't begin to describe the inanity, the tedium, the utter lack of originality in Dean Pitchford's script.

Kevin Bacon moves like a machete chopping through the jungle.

It dates itself in the best possible way for a little throwback kick.

It's watchable only because the energetic cast does wonders with the banal story.
