We let the kids watch footloose this weekend.
It wasn’t until we were watching it that we realized how inappropriate it was for children. I had to answer some questions I wasn’t ready for…
“why is he naked in the woods?” During a post sex scene.
“why is she zipping up her pants? Did she pee in the woods?’ During the same sex scene.
“Why is he hitting her? Why does she have blood?” After watching a girl get beat up.
Luckily they haven’t dwelled on it too much. I did explain that boys do not hit girls!
My favorite part of the movie is when Willard is learning how to dance. They play “Lets Hear it for the Boy!”
Looking back one of the funniest parts is when Ren (Kevin Bacon) gets so mad, he throw his beer and has to dance. I love it!
