What the Critics say

Ann Hornaday Footloose, 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 Small town gets a coat of red paint.
Todd Gilchrist For what it's worth, Craig Brewer's Footloose is the best 1980s movie made in 2011.
C. Fuchs If there's one complaint (beyond the remake issue) it's that there isn't enough dancing, especially for a movie about just that.
Tomatometer While 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.
