Footloose

There comes a time to cut loose.


Footloose
The second remake this week goes all the way back to the 1980s. A city youth moves to a small town, where he is horrified to discover that they have banned loud music and dancing after an incident a few years previously. He naturally sets about challenging this edict, his main enemy being the local preacher. The preacher has a pretty daughter and our city boy and her are soon an item, further complicating issues between the main protagonists.

116 minutes.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Ann Hornaday quote iconFootloose, the 1984 rebels-and-rock musical that defined a generation, has been unnecessarily but energetically repurposed for a new demographic cohort. This film never needed to be dragged into the 21st century but it now looks and sounds a little bit more like the real world.

Todd McCarthy quote iconSmall town gets a coat of red paint.

Box Office
Todd Gilchrist quote iconFor what it's worth, Craig Brewer's Footloose is the best 1980s movie made in 2011.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconIf there's one complaint (beyond the remake issue) it's that there isn't enough dancing, especially for a movie about just that.

Tomatometer quote iconWhile it hews closely to the 1984 original, Craig Brewer infuses his Footloose remake with toe-tapping energy and manages to keep the story fresh for a new generation.
