As a transplant from Boston, teenager Ren MacCormack (Kenny Wormald) gets a big dose of culture shock when he moves to a small Southern town called Bomont. A few years prior, a fatal accident involving five youths led local councilmen and a beloved clergyman (Dennis Quaid) to enact ordinances against loud music and dancing. Ren -- never one to toe the line -- challenges the ban, simultaneously revitalizing Bomont and falling in love with the clergyman's troubled daughter (Julianne Hough).

I am not going to compare this to the original (which was a lot better). This was a run of the mill teen angst movie that never really got me caring about anyone. It looked well made but it got silly trying to come up with ways for the main character to fit in. Julianne Hough was about the only thing keeping this movie alive, but in the end, I can't say that you should watch it just for her, the rest of the movie needs to have some substance that makes you want her to be with the kid...April 6th, 2013 · Details
So much more sexual in dance and in nature than the original. The story line is kept and modernized, though the bus races were not nearly as cool or as convincing as the tractor races. Who owns and races school buses? Overall, stick with the original if you need a Footloose fix!April 15th, 2013 · Details
