– 4 out of 5 stars
I went in thinking it wouldn’t be as nice as the original but I was wrong. I loved it! Kenny Wormald dances really well! OMG Kenny Wormald is amazing! They modified the premise of the movie so that it wouldn’t be too cheesy to watch it in modern times. FYI: the hairs on my arms were standing at the start of the original Footloose. But Kevin Bacon was kinda wow.
Anyway, it turned out all right and I really enjoyed the scenes when Ren (Wormald) was teaching Willard (Miles Teller) how to dance! Miles Teller reminds me of a young John Cusack somehow? And yes, I have to say it again – Kenny Wormald really dances like WOAH! So WOAH! that I Youtubed him that night and watched his dance scenes from You Got Served (which also had Harry Shum Jr. and Robert Hoffman – dancer-actors united!) and Center Stage: Turn It Up.
Here’s one of my favourite scenes and songs from the movie: (LINE DANCING!)
