Almost any movie made in the '80s is practically begging to be made fun of. Few are riper for the picking than Footloose--the teen-drama-dance-musical extravaganza starring none other than Kevin Bacon.
Whether you saw it when it premiered in movie theaters or this is the first you've ever heard of Footloose, prepare to be seriously entertained at the inaugural Comic Cinema Remix, hosted by InkVision and the Over 19 Adult Shop. In the way Mystery Science Theater 3000's Mike Nelson, Tom Servo and Crow made some of the worst movies ever watchable, local comics Brett Badostain, Chad Heft and Dylan Hass will provide running jokes and commentary as Ren (Bacon) dances his way into your heart.
The plot is only the beginning. This movie has a lot more to offer when it comes to potential for satire: love interest Ariel (Lori Singer), the naughty preacher's daughter; Rusty (Sarah Jessica Parker), the cute tomboy; and a city ordinance banning dancing.
If that's not enough, there are lines like, "I think you're sexier than socks on a rooster."
Throw in a soundtrack with the likes of "Holding Out For a Hero," "Almost Paradise" and "Let's Hear It For the Boy," and you have seemingly endless fodder for funny. Maybe they'll even play a few rounds of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.
