RMG 244: Footloose (1984)

March 31, 2021

On this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by Pastor Matt and his son Jackson from the Father And Son Watch Horror Movies podcast, and they’re geeking out over Footloose (1984) and

  • Dean Pitchford stories
  • relationships & friendships
  • the cast
  • a missing rap scene
  • and much, much more!


“Footloose” jumps with spirit, dazzling dance numbers and an electrifying musical score.

It portrays the timeless struggle between innocent pleasure and rigid morality, when city-boy Ren McCormick (Kevin Bacon) finds himself in an uptight Midwestern town, where dancing – and therefore all youthful joy – has been banned. Ren revolts with best friend Willard (Chris Penn) and the minister’s daughter (Lori Singer).
