I love this remake! I expected to hate it but was won over. Hough is so much better than Lori Singer. The dancing is better, Hough’s acting is far better, the back stories to explain the characters is welcome. Also nice that Ren’s family is supportive of him. Love the old version but love this just as much.

Bonnie Fuller forgive me but I think you need to find a new line of work after this review. This remake did not hold a candle to the original and really, how could it? The producers didn’t even bother to pay to have the story updated and the dialog is very nearly verbatim to the original script. The new sound track lacks substance and the only decent choreography in this film was done step for step in the original. I went into this film with hopeful anticipation for a modern piece of work with a familiar storyline only to feel as if I were watching a broadway play put on by the local high school. I still can’t figure out why they wasted so much time and money creating nothing!

I’m sorry to the critic but you’re high if you think anything could be better than the original and no, I have not and will not see it. So why do I know it’s not better? Because Footloose isn’t Footloose without “bacon” in it. I don’t care who they throw in there, how updated it is, the snazzy dances in it….it’s just not the same and will never be and ANY movie that is a remake by very definition cannot be better than the original b/c a component of a good movie is the originality of it.

Lori Singer is Ariel and Kevin Bacon is Ren and that’s that. And Ren’s sidekick? Sorry to whoever plays him here but that role is ONLY deserving of Chris Penn, may he rest in peace.

Now watch, this critic will say the crap remake being planned for Dirty Dancing will be better too. You suck.
