FOOTLOOSE dances into stores on DVD and Blu-ray September 27th



Perennial Favorite Cuts Loose September 27 with New Cast Interviews,
Kevin Bacon’s Original Screen Test, Commentary and More!
Filled with electrifying dancing, memorable music and timeless spirit, the contagious celebration of youth FOOTLOOSE arrives on Blu-ray for the first time ever and in a new Deluxe Edition DVD, both featuring more than 30 minutes of all-new special features, on September 27, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. In this beloved fable about teen exuberance overcoming rigid, misplaced morality, Kevin Bacon lights up the screen as city-boy Ren, an outsider who finds himself in an uptight Midwestern town where dancing has been banned.  The film’s sensational soundtrack spawned two #1 hits: “Let’s Hear It For The Boy”, and, of course, Kenny Loggins’ rocking anthem “Footloose”, along with enduring classics such as “Dancing In The Sheets”, “Holding Out For A Hero”, “I’m Free (Heaven Helps The Man)” and the love theme “Almost Paradise”.  FOOTLOOSE also stars John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lori Singer and
Chris Penn.
The FOOTLOOSE Blu-ray and Deluxe Edition DVD boast brand new bonus material including new interviews with Kevin Bacon and Sarah Jessica Parker, a tribute to Chris Penn, a costume montage and a first-ever look at Kevin Bacon’s screen test.  The discs also feature a commentary by Kevin Bacon and a second commentary by producer Craig Zadan and writer Dean Pitchford.  In addition, the Blu-ray includes the previously released featurettes “Footloose: A Modern Musical” and “Footloose: Songs That Tell A Story”.

Our Review:
I did not get a chance to see this movie when it was first released in the theater. Besides the fact that I was only a few years old at the time, I was also living in Taiwan. I did watch this on TV when my family first immigrated to the US. Although I spoke limited English at the time, I was drawn to its portrayal of  small town America. I think it was a eye opener for a foreigner like me to see what life might have been like for small town teens. Watching this movie again as a mother of two kids, I thought that the movie was still entertaining. Kevin Bacon was great in this movie. This is a fun 80's flick that the whole family could enjoy.
