Footloose: Directed by Herbert Ross. With Kevin Bacon, Lori Singer, John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest. A city teenager moves to a small town where rock music and dancing have been banned, and his rebellious spirit shakes up the populace.

“This is a pretty weak effort after some good episodes. Janice Rule returns for the third time, (u0026quot;A Lance of Strawu0026quot; and u0026quot;Once to Every Manu0026quot;) again as a woman too strong to get a man. Sheu0026#39;s a multi- millionaire heiress who has an on-going rivalry with her younger sister, played by Susan Kohner, in one of her last appearances before she retired from the business after a promising start to raise a family. She, too, had played a similar role in a prior episode, (u0026quot;The Quick and the Deadu0026quot; from the first season). That one was about race cars. This one is about speed boats. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe boys encounter them in a u0026quot;cute meetu0026quot; when Susanu0026#39;s speedboat cuts their fishing line and overturns their boat. Thereu0026#39;s a big race coming up, (Hosted by Guy Lombardo, of all people), and each sister has a boat in the race. They hire the boys to race their boats, (Why? Janice is not a racer but Susan appears to be one from the cute meet). Tod and Linc get very competitive with each other. I wonu0026#39;t say who wins but Linc realizes that he canu0026#39;t have a worthwhile relationship with Janice. Tod, as usual, had no such illusions, (he probably remembered her from the prior episodes). This show actually reduces itself to utilizing comic relief from the worldu0026#39;s most unfunny comedian, (Sammy Shore) and a series of scenes where characters either gets drenched by passing speedboats or gets shoved into the water.”
