There are few movies from the 1980s that made more of an impact on the American consciousness than "Footloose."

From the oft-imitated opening montage of a wide variety of colorfully-clad feet dancing to the beat of the unforgettable title tune, to the soundtrack that spawned a half-dozen Billboard chart-topping hits, to the career-launching performances of Kevin Bacon, Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Penn, "Footloose" was a true pop culture phenomenon.
