Footloose – Movie Review

Rating: 5/10 This remake didn’t quite do it for me. Acting was mediocre, dialog a little lame, the whole movie seemed forced. I enjoyed seeing Julianne Hough, of Dancing With the Stars fame, play the preacher’s daughter. For first time out acting, she did a good job. Maybe because I was comparing it to the original with Kevin Bacon, or maybe because I am older… this version seemed more like a TV movie than a big screen movie. Put this one near the bottom of your list. Was not a complete bomb, so if nothing else is available at Red Box, for $1 it isn’t a bad rental (if nothing better is on TV). My wife rates it same as me 5/10. She thought it was a little contrived and bad acting all the way around. Are we wrong? Did you like the movie?
