Loose Shoes (also known as Coming Attractions and Quackers) is a 1980 comedy film directed by Ira Miller and featuring Bill Murray. The film is presented as a series of movie trailers with titles such as The Howard Huge Story, Skate-boarders from Hell and The Invasion of the Penis Snatchers. The film was shot around 1977 and only released years later in 1980, probably to capitalize on Bill Murray's success as a box office film star.

The title Loose Shoes is taken from a 1940s-, Cab Calloway-style song-and-dance number in the film's final skit "Darktown After Dark," which satirizes an infamous 1976 racial remark: "I'll tell you what the coloreds want. It's three things: first, a tight pussy; second, loose shoes; and third, a warm place to shit.", made by Gerald Ford's then Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz who was forced to resign.
