On... Footloose and angry dancing

I just watched the trailer for the new Footloose movie. Dudes, it does not look good. I won't even bore you with a link to it, that's how not good it looks.

Instead, I shall provide you with the truly brilliant last scene of the original Footloose.

That movie taught me everything I know about dancing. Seriously. I pretty much do all those moves after a couple of drinks (except the robot because the robot is REALLY HARD). I hear the kids today have a new way of jiving, but if it ain't broke, right?

Now, because it really makes me laugh, may I offer you Kevin Bacon's Angry Dance scene from earlier in the film. Feel his anger! Feel it!

Lastly, not only because it is an homage to Footloose but because it is one of the funniest scenes from one of the funniest shows of the last few years: I give you Bret's Angry Dance from Flight of the Conchords.


  1. I didn't even know there WAS a new Footloose movie. How wrong. Why do they keep rehashing old ideas? Is nothing original anymore???

    PS I LOVE Flight of the Conchords.

  2. Love the first video. I agree with you on the new trailer. What a pile of @*&%. The thing that made the original so good was that they weren't angst ridden teenagers finding love. Kevin Bacon was 24 when he starred in it. A bit more mature than the 17 year olds with too much time on their hands in the newer version. Can anyone say Step Up?

  3. Footloose Redux... one reason to avoid the theatres entirely this year.
