    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

      Such a good movie, a real classic that is good for the whole family. A great underscore to never judge a book by its cover story and also a moral compass to never give up on what you believe in. Friends work together, stand by one another, parents realize maybe they don't know everything, although trying to protect loved ones for the right reasons, you still need to have faith in the human condition and let your spirit be free. Great movie, better than the remake, usually in most cases of course, worth a purchase. Kevin Bacon and crew did an outstanding job and made the film fun for the tempo of what it stood for.

      Always liked this movie. The blu-ray, while the audio is pretty awesome, the video quality pretty much sucks...You'll cringe watching the video, but the audio (DTS MA HD 6.1) rocks! And it's the music that counts, right? I wouldn't have bought it, except Best Buy had it at a pretty good price. I'm sure it'll be remastered and re-released (like everything else), so you may want to wait. But if you can't, this version may be enough to satisfy you.

      Great 80's movie! My wife and I love 80's movies and when ever we see a Blue Ray 80's movie at Best Buy we make sure we purchase it right away! My girl saw this on this movie on the shelves and of course we had to buy it! Footloose!!! Too bad Sean Penn's Bro is no longer with us but when you see this on a Blue Ray he gives one of his best performance ever! Makes you want to relive that era! 80's Rock!!!!

      Its a great movie from the 80s that still deserves a viewing today. Like other dancing movies of the 80s (Dirty Dancing, Flashdance, Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo) many fans want a good crisp clean bluray release. Footloose did have a bluray release but I feel it could still use another bluray release with a cleaner transfer and more extras. Overall its worth purchasing for now.

      I found this in the bin at Best Buy...good deal. I bought it for my daughter who was young when this movie originally came out. I bought her 4 movies from the '80's from that bin that day. She said this movie deserves 5 stars but she didn't say why. I haven't seen it for awhile, but the dancing and music are very good. Good story, too.

      Footloose was great movie bringing star Kevin Bacon to his beginning in acting. It is great movie that can be watched over and over. Buy this great movie for your movie collection. It brings back the era of great 80's music and dancing at its best.

      'Footloose' is a movie that just failed to intrigue me in any sense. It's not a bad picture, it's just not one I would find myself watching often. However, for the people that do enjoy the film, this collector's dvd is well worth the buy, and has several bonus features not on the previous dvd incarnation.

      'Footloose' is a movie that just failed to intrigue me in any sense. It's not a bad picture, it's just not one I would find myself watching often. Fans of this movie will want to purchase the collector's edition that has a ton of bonus material not available on this release.
