Watching Footloose with my 16yr. old DD

Isn't Kevin Bacon a hottie?

I had to fit this post in before I start blogging about Fall. It seems too early to start blogging about browns, oranges, and greens. I am still enjoying our Summer too much! After all our Summer here in Oregon didn't begin until July!!
I am hoping for an Indian Summer.

The other day I checked out the movie "Footloose" from the library. I looove this movie! The dancing is so cool and I LOVE Kevin Bacon! He is strangely hot:)
I had to preface the movie for my daughter by telling her their were a few cuss words (um...a lot of cuss words). I also forgot about some pot smoking, a few sexual innuendos (boy Ariel was a hoe) etc....Ok, maybe I shouldn't have let her watch it, but I really wanted to and I got her excited about it.

Now, we have taught our kids about what's right and wrong. Our DD knows that swearing is wrong, along with pre-marital sex and smoking pot (smoking anything for that matter!). That doesn't mean I should have let her watch it, but I don't think she was scarred for life because she saw it. I am hoping she learned some important lessons.

We had a nice talk about it afterwards and she was a little appalled how loose the girl was in the movie and a few other things, but I think it was a good thing to watch it together. She learned that just because you are a preachers daughter and he is really strict, doesn't mean you should go around doing the wild thing with boys and playing chicken with cars on the highway!

Did you like the movie "Footloose?" Does it bring back fond memories of when you were in high school?

I would love to hear your comments! I read each and every one.

Oh, and by the way, I found this video on U-Tube about a Footloose reunion a few years ago on the Today show. I thought you might like to see it! Go check it out:


  1. Yes, I remember Footloose, especially the music from it. It's like every song was a major hit! I loved it when they read from the scriptures in the courtroom. And I lived by the "Lehi Roller Mills" so it was fun to see that and know it was in a major movie! Good times! (Although you are right that it does have a little raunchy stuff in it too!)


  2. This is too funny! I watched Footloose with my 17 year old about a month ago. Sounds like your discussions were just like ours. ;) It's such a fun movie though. The music is so great.
