I purchased this double feature for my daughter who has never seen Footloose. The bonus was getting the Flashdance movie. They are both movies I loved as a teenager, and my daughter has watched Footloose at least 10 times already! The price for both was FANTASTIC, and delivery was less than a week!! Very happy with my purchase from Amazon.com and will continue to look for those good old movies that are too hard to find at a great price in stores!

Sincerely,
Kelly Monasmith

I was looking for Footloose -one of my all-time faves- but I'm a fan of both movies so I instantly saw the brilliance in putting these together; this double disc combo really is perfect. Both of these movies are meant to be inspiring, and of course the rockin' music and fabulous choreography have always pumped me up to WANT to dance, so this combo is kind of like a life-affirming, super-fun and calorie-burning 3-4 hour aerobic set! Pop em in and get up and dance! It sounds cheesy but if you appreciate these movies the way I do, you know what I'm talking about!

Footloose of course is about a cool city-boy stuck in a small-town with closed-minded, painfully strict church-loving and God-fearing people who believe that dancing and rock n roll are sinful devil's work that do nothing but make kids want to copulate (and the problem is....?). City-boy shows them the truth (music in all forms is good for the soul, and dancing is man's way of celebrating life! Ain't THAT the truth?!) and the errors of their ways in an inspiring 'fight for what you believe in' story with killer music, killer dancing, and the insanely hot Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer. If you appreciated the 80's, you can't lose!

Flashdance of course is a 'work hard and reach for your dreams' story about a young woman who dreams of going to a prestigious dance school to become a professional and respected dancer, and she certainly has what it takes! There isn't as much dancing as I would've liked in this movie, as it is also a romance and centers on that and her day jobs and yadda yadda, so for me the whole movie is basically just a long lead-up to the final amazing and powerful dance rehearsal, and THAT is what makes this movie hot. They should've done more of that. Still a good one though.

Footloose I give 5 out of 5 stars
Flashdance I give 3 out of 5 stars

And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is my review. Thank you and stay tuned for the next one.....

I haven't yet looked at the Flashdance portion of this DVD, but Footloose is a very poor transfer. There is dirt and spots throughout the film and most scenes are very soft and blurry. At least it's presented in anamorphic widescreen.

I can't believe I grew up and never watched these two movies. Specially being a movie freak.... lol. It wasn't till my hubby bought this disc from Walmart that I finally got to watch these movies. I enjoyed them both a lot. Made me want to get up and start dancing.... lol.

Well I had to see this 1983 flick again. It wasn't a favorite but its a classic. Nothing wrong with it I just am not a dancing Bacon fan. Now.... if he is playing an evil dude like in Hollowman or X-Men: First Class totally different response. I think he is great as a mad scientist or toying with world domination. He must have "been there and done that, and got the T-shirt" in a past life, hah! hah! But don't pass it up on my account because it is a good film or you could say 'period piece' depicting the early 80s.

I picked this & the original 1985 "Fright Night" (great flick!) double paks up to review and share with my nieces before seeing the remakes.Fright Night / Urban Legend (Two-pack)

I bought this double feature DVD several months ago and am now just getting around to review it.

Believe me when I say you can't go wrong in purchasing this DVD if you enjoy good acting and excellent quality, along with some great music,(if you own a DVD player that plays the DVD to the upconvertion the quality is just about as good as a Blu Ray DVD)

When I purchased it, I believe I got it on sale from Amazon.com for $9.99, but it is now listed on the site for the price of $11.43 (which is still very much worth it IMHO).

I don't really recommend anyone to watch the movie. It's a waste of
time, but there is some good acting in it.
I'm giving the seller a good rating for prompt delivery and functional
product. The seller did a good job delivering the product quickly
and it was functional.

Footloose is and has been a great dance classic. Bacon and Lithgow make the story, and the music is good, even now. Flashdance was a good movie about fulfilling one's dreams.

What can I say about these two great 80's movies. It just brings back awesome memories & are two classics for sure. Wonderful idea to put these two together.
