Footloose (2011) 2.0 stars

Footloose (2011) movie poster

Spirited remake of the 1984 hit about hormonal teens who face a preacher’s ban on dancing, their liberation coming with the title tune. Dennis Quaid is the grim cleric who hates the devil’s music — funny, if you remember Quaid rippin’ and rockin’ in Great Balls of Fire! Kenny Wormald, the new Kevin Bacon-doing-James Dean, is the hip dude new to town, and Julianne Hough the preacher’s lass who knows how to wow. A vital cast fills the pop mold, so obviously but affectionately poured by director Craig Brewer. 2011.

David Elliott
