Critic Review - Variety

Paramount's Footloose reboot never quite cuts loose enough to distinguish itself from the original.

The 'orginal' is 27 years old. Not many in the current audience even know about it or even saw it back in the day. You criitcs need to stop doing your classroom comparisons. Its just a simple, sappy feel good movie that did not make one mistake. It flowed and was pure. Good movie making, I say and I'm an old, old guy.

Have to agree. Not to mention, it's completely unbelievable in modern America - though in the late 80s there were still towns outlawing dancing.
