This remake could have audiences tapping their feet... as they wait for it to end.

FEMA can take a day off because Footloose is one remake that won't be called a natural disaster, in fact, it's one hell of a good film.

Director Craig Brewer has Southernized the story...made it lighter on its feet.

It's unlikely that Brewer's Footloose will persuade many remake skeptics but the film does deliver surprisingly enjoyable character drama and exciting choreography.

I can easily imagine this FOOTLOOSE being looked back on down the road as the film that launched these names much like how the '84 film is reflected on in terms of Bacon.

You either go all the way with it or simply roll your eyes when confronted by its terrible, cynical crassness.

I'm sure there was some great choreography and some great dancing that went into this movie. You don't see any of it.

It's taken me a long time to come to grips with this cinematic weakness - or maybe it's a blessing. I like dance movies, especially if the music is bouncy and it makes the characters happy. That's an infectious film sequence for me.

It's as if the filmmakers decided, 'We're sticking with the basic script, but this ain't your mama's 'Footloose.'

The latest Footloose is a step up from recent dance flicks.

American Profile

The characters, the scenes, the dancing, even much of the dialogue are all plugged into a rigidly prefabricated storyline that treats its 1984 predecessor more as holy writ instead of perishable Reagan-era cheese.

It seems torn by a desire to appeal to every contemporary teenager's rebellious side, but remains too scared to cut loose from the things that made the original appeal to their parents.

An unnecessary, though enjoyable, remake of Kevin Bacon's 1984 breakout hit.

The makers of 'Footloose 2.0' can be faulted for actually sticking too closely to the original.

While the 2011 version of the film doesn't suck, it isn't as good as the original ...

...the film's overlength ultimately prevent[s] it from becoming the propulsive piece of work Brewer has clearly intended.

The Age (Australia)

The dancing sequences are terrific - even the line-dancing is tolerable - but what really sells this quality reboot are the dashes of reality missing from the original.

If you haven't seen the original and are happy to ignore some of the more mad script decisions, you might get a kick out of it, but otherwise, youre better off re-watching the movie that started it all.

'I believe that any town where Dennis Quaid can wear pleated trousers should also be a town where kids can dance,' says Ren. 'But first, I will prove my bona fides by racing a school bus encrusted with stuffed animals!'
