    Synopsis


    Footloose
    Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer takes the helm for this remake of the popular 1984 musical romance about a big-city teen who moves to a town that has outlawed dancing. Uprooted from Boston and reluctantly transplanted to the small Bible Belt town of Bomont, Ren MacCormack (Kenny Wormald) finds himself in a repressed community still reeling from a devastating loss. Shortly before he arrived in Bomont, five local teens perished in a tragic car accident following a local dance. As a result, the upstanding Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) and the local councilmen passed a strict ordinance outlawing both dancing and excessively loud music. Convinced that the new law is hopelessly misguided, rebellious Ren puts on his dancing shoes and wins the heart of Reverend Moore's distraught daughter, Ariel (Julianne Hough), while showing his fellow classmates that it's perfectly normal to blow off a little steam with some loud music and good friends. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Surprised by Movie

      We bought this Blu-Ray, but my husband and I were a little leary about it. I mean, who can do this as good as Kevin Bacon, Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Penn. We were so surprised when we watched the new one! Of course, it is set in a little more modern time, but the actors were awesome!! There were only a couple of minor changes to the original. The one I liked is the character originally played by Chris Penn was not quite so "tight" in this one. You will not be let down if you buy this movie.

      If you've seen the original with Kevin Bacon, you probably won't find much new in this remake. Still, it is a fun movie to watch. Recommended.

      The movie was ok but nothing like the original. I did like the beginning though when they showed why the town did what they did u like the first where they just talked about it.

      I was fearful this remake would be over done and not have a plot that was as good (or better) than the first. This movie turned out great and glad I could purchase it for such a low price at Best Buy!

      You must see the original Footloose with Kevin Bacon before watching this movie as you will appreciate it more. They did a great job with the remake!

      Kids love watching the newer version of this movie. They watch original and compare them and the things that were different. Enjoyable for whole family.
