Footloose

Visible crew/equipment: In the sequence where the young are in the field to clear up the rules of "chicken game" (or something), you can see a part of a microphone above them.

Continuity mistake: As Ren is dancing after the confrontation with his uncle we can see him dancing through the factory. He then does some gymnastics on a bar on the loft. If you look you can see that he is wearing gymnastics grips on his hands. Yet he did not have them on in the shot before, or in the shot afterwards.

Scrappy

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ren does his dance at the warehouse when he is angry he gets out of the car with a cigarette in one hand. He slams the door with the other hand, but the next minute he drinks out of a bottle, which he had not previously been holding. (00:34:10)

More quotes from Footloose

Question: When Ren is driving with his friends at night, he is told about the circumstances behind the death of Ariel's brother. It was quite clear that it was driving while under the influence of alcohol that was responsible for his death so why blame it on playing loud music?

Answer: The belief was that rock and roll was the root cause of the accident. The adults who supported the ban believed that rock and roll influenced the teens to do things they wouldn't normally do, such as drinking and driving.

BaconIsMyBFF

Answer: One of the kids answers the question during the conversation by saying something along the lines of there's three things involved, and the adults didn't wanna get rid of two of 'em, which left dancing/music.
