Can You Beat This FilmBy Jon Fox from Luton, England , 31 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Ok I've just read the previous review submitted to this movie. Er Hum.... Of course it's dated, of course it's full of 80s dancing, because.... IT IS AN 80s MOVIE! What a fantastic movie at that. great story. Love the acting. Something honnest about the performances, like everyone believed in the movies direction. Undoubtedly the best film from the time. I love the dancing, I can do the dancing, it's not camp it's real. People danced like that and they were loved for it. Rent this film, you cannot fail to be impressed and relieved that they got their dance. I challenge anyone to refrain from dancing the whole way through.

I think im too young to appreciate its brillianceBy sarahdoodle (16 reviews) , 21 Oct 2013I will probably be thought of as a bit thick but i just didn't see the big deal? Maybe i'm too young to appreciate its brilliance in the yrs of green screens and visual effects. i actually fell asleep after half hour :( sorry footloose fans
Kevin Bacon sizzlesBy Sho24 (1 review) , 16 May 2013One of my all time favourites as when it was first released I was only 14. I watched it recently and it was just as I remember. A feel good easy to follow story and no need for special effects.
1984 Original - a True ClassicBy Chrisaljack (417 reviews) from Hellingly , 19 Jul 2012Do not waste your time with the 2011 version of Footloose. This 1984 version is absolutely terrific! ...and the reason they re-made it! Classic music, an opening title sequence that will have your feet tapping (only bettered by the opening sequence of Flashdance that was issued about the same time in the mid-1980's) and a story absolutely in tune with the times. A genuine Classic!
toe tappingBy a customer , 03 Feb 2012What an easy to watch, foot tapping film. Great to watch with the kids (girls) and hearing all the songs is great
