Ren MacCormack is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont's local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister's troubled daughter Ariel in the process.
Comedy Drama Musical - This is a very faithful remake of the 1984 film of the same name,
as such has some content about teen behavior that may be of some
caution to parents. The known names in the film have supporting
roles to a young cast of newcomers. Language and adult themes make
the film inappropriate for younger children.
PROFANITY: 19 S-words; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Implied teen sex without nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights between men and women. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol drinking, including by teens. ACTION: A bus race; a big fight. COMEDY: Comic banter and cute kid jokes.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average Footloose is disposable fun, although Brewer could have amped up the enjoyability quotient by tightening the script to make it more musically oriented...
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average This new 'Footloose' is a film without wit, humor or purpose.
USA TodayFull Review Average Except for the energetic moves that are busted, there's not much to celebrate in the Footloose reboot.
