The original 'Footloose' was the first movie I had to see purely out of peer pressure. It was also the first "dirty" movie I ever convinced my parents to take me to see. Yes, I realize that most sane human beings would not consider 'Footloose' a dirty movie, but I was nine years old at the time, and the word "shit" was used profusely. At nine years old, while watching 'Footloose,' it was the first time I ever felt like an adult. To the average person living today, 'Footloose' might seem like a trivial piece of fluff. To a group of us within (I would estimate) a three-year age range, at the time, 'Footloose' meant everything.
