Footloose (1984)/Footloose (2011) [DVD]

Both versions of the cult dance movie on one DVD. In the 1984 original, high school student Ren (Kevin Bacon in his breakthrough role) moves to a town where a fundamentalist preacher (John Lithgow) has outlawed dancing. The dance-loving teen starts a movement to eliminate the ban, just like he does in the 2011 remake starring Kenny Wormald. Extras include Kevin Bacon's screen test, deleted scenes and more.

    Synopsis


    Footloose
    In this lively adolescent-oriented musical, a city kid attempts to adapt to life in an ultra-conservative backwater Midwestern town. Once there, he ends up leading the repressed teenagers into a rebellion against the town fathers, who have outlawed rock & roll and dancing. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    Footloose
    Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer takes the helm for this remake of the popular 1984 musical romance about a big-city teen who moves to a town that has outlawed dancing. Uprooted from Boston and reluctantly transplanted to the small Bible Belt town of Bomont, Ren MacCormack (Kenny Wormald) finds himself in a repressed community still reeling from a devastating loss. Shortly before he arrived in Bomont, five local teens perished in a tragic car accident following a local dance. As a result, the upstanding Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) and the local councilmen passed a strict ordinance outlawing both dancing and excessively loud music. Convinced that the new law is hopelessly misguided, rebellious Ren puts on his dancing shoes and wins the heart of Reverend Moore's distraught daughter, Ariel (Julianne Hough), while showing his fellow classmates that it's perfectly normal to blow off a little steam with some loud music and good friends. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This has got to be one of the best classic films from the '80s and then re-released in 2011. What a great movie to add to my collection!
