Can you believe there are small towns in America that ban dancing? At least two: the Utah burg from 1984's Footloose, and the Georgia town in 2011's Footloose. Except for the location, not much has changed between movies--in fact, this remake sticks so loyally to the original that it even imports a batch of songs from the first movie. That's right: not only will you get a couple of takes on the title tune, but quintessentially '80s songs such as "Let's Hear It for the Boy" and "Almost Paradise" also come shuffling along. Once again the saga follows a big-city teen (played here by dancer Kenny Wormald) who takes the outsider role in his new home, where the local minister (Dennis Quaid) and the town council have decreed a strict curfew at night and a prohibition on the evils of rock and roll. But our boy has gotta dance, and so does the preacher's naughty daughter (a tasty performance from Dancing with the Stars regular Julianne Hough). You'll know exactly where all this is headed even if you didn't see the Kevin Bacon version, and the movie offers up some of the same sort of fun, especially the dancing. Director Craig Brewer, who adapted lyricist Dean Pitchford's original screenplay, finds some nice moments with the young actors, and Miles Teller (who gave a touching performance in Rabbit Hole) is well and truly launched with his role as the hero's clumsy-footed pal. What doesn't scan is Brewer's insistence on re-creating scenes right down to duplicating certain iconic shots. Maybe this will work for the alleged "new generation" of moviegoers that remakes like this are intended for, but for everybody else, it will all be a little too familiar. --Robert Horton

Product Description

The struggle between innocence and rigid morality is revisited when city-boy Ren finds himself in an uptight town where dancing has been banned. Filled with contemporary music and iconic classics from the original, this fresh look on youth culture is sure to win fans of young and old.

Format:Blu-ray
They remade Footloose? I groaned when I even thought about how bad this was going to be. I liked the original, and didn't even consider seeing this when it came out at the theatre. Flash forward to a cold and rainy night, and my teenage kids decide to rent this on pay per view. I groan again, thinking how awful this is going to be. I couldn't even watch it, so I puttered around the house doing everything else but sit there and watch a somewhat iconic movie be destroyed. Two hours later, and my kids could not stop talking about it. They loved it. Curious, I plopped down and watched it. They wanted to see it again. I was shocked. The first thing that grabs your attention is how my kids kept thinking the clothes and hair were cool. I told them that in the ancient 80's, we used to flip our collars up, have our pants cinched at the ankles, and wear our hair short on the sides and long on top. I also told them we used to dance. It was a blast from the past, but a bridge to the present. The story seemed fresh to the teenagers, and was even fresh to me. The dancing is great. The acting is decent, and this movie is fun. There are a few scenes that are not appropriate for younger kids (a girl having sex for the first time, drug references, underage drinking, a girl getting slapped by her boyfriend, some swearing), but very tame stuff when compared to the groundbreaking stuff John Hughes did in the 80's. It was a way to connect with the kids. The movie is certainly way better than expected. Way better than the garbage some remakes are. Well done. Well done indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good October 19, 2011
Format:DVD
From Tom Cruise getting down in his tighty whiteys in "Risky Business" to Jennifer Grey having the time of her life in "Dirty Dancing", eighties movies were filled with great moments involving dancing. They were one of a kind, and can't be recreated with the same impact. If you asked me before I saw the reviews, I would have said that the cinematic world did not need a remake of "Footloose." Mainly, because I can't think of a remake of an eighties' film that bettered the original. In this case, I've only seen bits of the original, so I thought this was pretty good.

The plot is the same as the `84 version. When a group of teens are killed in a drunk driving accident, the minister (Dennis Quaid) whose son has also died, and the town officials ban virtually everything teens do for recreation, including dancing. (Drag racing busses aflame, does get a pass.) Three years later, Bobby's younger sister, Ariel, played by Julianne Hough, is busy doing everything that's been banned and not caring if she's caught. She also has the requisite bad boy older boyfriend, who doesn't respect her. Naturally, she's a perfect match for new kid in town Ren (Kenny Wormald reprising the Kevin Bacon role), who's moved in with his uncle's family, following the death of his mom from cancer. Ren is a good kid, but after a series of run-ins with the local authorities, he decides to cut loose, kick off his Sunday shoes and with his new friends, get the ban on dancing revoked.

The lead does a good job, but if you ask me, Miles Teller, playing Ren's pal who must overcome his fears of being a "dancing dork" stole the show. Also excellent is Andie McDowell, in the role of the preacher's wife, who has stood by her man for too long and is about to tell him some uncomfortable truths. Oh yes, and the dancing is totally awesome.

2.0 out of 5 stars They should have left this classic alone. January 31, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A copycat rip-off of a classic 80s movie. Very poorly acted, terrible covers of classic 80s songs, and almost every scene word for word. Why couldn't they leave this classic alone?

1.0 out of 5 stars Racing school buses? Why? December 15, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I suppose the fact that I was a teenager when the original came out ruined any chance for this one to be considered good. The music was painful to ones ears which is a shame since there were some pretty decent artists involved. What has happened to acting? This was abysmal. Ariel was not believable in the least bit as the slutty preachers kid. Ren was inept at dancing, acting, emotion etc. His less than emotion filled speech to the city council was pathetic to say the least. Dennis Quaid failed miserably as Shaw. John Lithgow was an imposing man as Shaw while being soft spoken. I won't even start in on Rusty and Willard. Changing the story line in some places to update it only served to further ruin the film. School bus races? Really? Why change it from playing chicken with tractors? That scene was so pathetically boring I was forced to fast forward through for any hope of finishing this film. Truncating multiple scenes into one to well I suppose shorten the time frame leaves the viewer wondering what the hell the director was thinking. Having Ariel confess her sins in church in front of Shaw should have been full of fire not "oh by the way i'm not even a virgin". I fast forwarded through several parts of the movie just to get past the horrific acting and suddenly feel the need to watch the original to try and erase this one from my mind. Hollywood needs to stop remaking films and come up with some decent new ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but... December 30, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Good story, good casting, and good acting. That said, crude language and sexually suggestive scenes not necessary and not appropriate for children.

Don't waste your time with this remake. The older one with Kevin Bacon is still a better movie even though it's a little out dated.

I didn't care for Julianne's character. It seemed like she was trying really hard to be cute and I don't feel she played her role to her full potential.
