Footloose


After a stupid amount of alchol on Friday, I found myself in an familar spot on Saturday. Sprawled out on the couch, drinking alot of sugary drinks, trying to get back in shape for Saturday night. Flicking through the channels, absolutely nothing on. I settle for Footloose.

Im not sure if I would put this down as a bad way to spend an hour and a half of your life. It was one of those films that was so bad it was good. Starting with the ridiculous storyline. A teenager who was raised in Chicago. Ren McCormack (Kevin Rasher) moves to a small town where the town government has banned dancing and rock music. Poor old rasher just wants to have a dance and get his wicked way with the Reverend's Daughter. This film sucks ass, its just so terrible its hard to put into words. Ive never been a Kevin Rasher fan. He has never convinced me in any role he has played, he always has that bored I dont want to be here look on his face.

All this still didnt stop me downloading the soundtrack which is pure 80s keyboard cheese. Kenny Loggins bringing us "Footloose" and "I'm Free (Heaven Helps the Man)" and a few other cringe worthy songs that girls go mental when they here come on, like Lets Hear it for the boy.

Why do all stupid chicks love Footloose and Dirty Dancing? Kevin Bacon is a worthless turd, although I did like 'Flatliners' back in the day.

Way back when - I watched the movie on tv with my folks - they loved it - I loved it - nice wholesome family stuff - almost as good as 'One man and his dog'!
