Details of Footloose and the Ticket Luck value
1984 movie Footloose is a Herbert Ross direction with the screenplay written by Dean Pitchford. Despite mixed critical reviews, the film was a huge box-office hit, grossing roughly $80,000,000 in the United States alone. It instantly became a culturally iconic film, with many of its songs remaining perennial favorites to this day. Kevin Bacon became a star largely on the basis of the film, and it helped launch the careers of Chris Penn and Sarah Jessica Parker as well.
With co-production and distribution of Paramount Pictures, Footloose is one of the earliest film appearances of Sarah Jessica Parker, the prominent Square Pegs star, as Ariel's friend Rusty ? for which she was nominated for Best Young Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture Musical, Comedy, Adventure or Drama at the Sixth Annual Youth in Film Awards. Chris Penn was casted as Willard Hewitt, Ren's best friend, who doesn't know how to dance until Ren teaches him. Footloose also starred Lori Singer as Reverend Moore's independent daughter Ariel and Dianne Wiest as Vi, the Reverend's devoted yet sympathetic wife.
The movie is primarily about Ren McCormick, role played by Kevin Bacon, a teenager who was raised in Chicago. McCormick moves to a small town where the town government has banned dancing and rock music. Ren and his classmates want to have a senior prom with music and dancing. They must figure out a way to get around the law and Reverend Shaw Moore, played by John Lithgow, who makes it his mission in life to keep the town free from dancing and rock music. The movie was loosely based on events that took place in the tiny, rural farming community of Elmore City, Oklahoma. Much of the film was filmed in Payson, Utah and Lehi, Utah, with the Lehi Roller Mills featured finely.On the show 30 Rock in the episode Black Tie, Kenneth referred to Footloose as the movie where those evil kids won in the end.
The movie's soundtrack was released in compact cassette, gramophone record, and CD format. The soundtrack was also re-released on CD for the 15th anniversary of the film. The re-release included four new songs: Bang Your Head (Metal Health) by Quiet Riot, Hurts So Good by John Cougar Mellencamp, Waiting for a Girl Like You by Foreigner, and the extended 12 remix of Dancing in the Sheets. The soundtrack includes two rock singles, the title song by Kenny Loggins and Holding Out for a Hero by Bonnie Tyler, two R&B singles, Let's Hear It For the Boy by Deniece Williams and Dancing In the Sheets by Shalamar and the love theme Almost Paradise by Mike Reno from Loverboy and Ann Wilson from Heart. The soundtrack went on to sell over 9 million copies in the USA.
Two songs from the movie, Footloose by Kenny Loggins and Let's Hear It for the Boy by Deniece Williams both hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 received 1985 Academy Award nominations for Best Music. The song Footloose also received a 1985 Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Original Song.A musical version of Footloose features many of the same songs from the movie. The musical is generally faithful to the film version, with some slight differences in the story and characters. Although there will be a remake musical Footloose starring Zac Efron and it will be out sometimes in 2008 in theaters.
Various references to Footloose can easily be traced in various other television series as well as family shows. In the Family Guy episode Boys Do Cry, Brian states that politically, Texans are as stubborn as a mule. The next scene shows a mule refusing to admit that Kevin Bacon starred in Footloose.
On the show American Dad Roger the alien gets a fake nose that makes him look like Kevin Bacon. He goes to the mall and proceeds to dance to 'Footloose' until he steals a car. Like wise in an episode of Will & Grace, Jack becomes both Kevin Bacon's assistant and stalker. When he frames Will as the stalker, Will and Kevin perform the dance to Footloose. Finally in the Season One Finale of the HBO series Flight of the Conchords, main character Brit proclaims he dances when he gets angry, and throughout the episode, he and Jermaine dance, similar to the scene in Footloose when Kevin Bacon dances to express his frustration with the town authority.
