16: Footloose (1984) and Footloose (2011).
Let’s hear it for the boys as Allen and Chris get their dancing shoes on and look at the much loved 1984 film Footloose and the 2011 remake.
We talk about the original hit filled soundtrack, the real life story of the town that banned dancing, why it’s a bad idea to play Russian roulette with blanks, Kevin Bacon going back to school, stage kids VS Chris Penn. We praise the daddy John Lithgow while Allen hates Miles Teller and Chris is going through some stuff…. anyway, I thought this was a party. LET'S DANCE!
