There comes a time to cut loose

City kid Ren MacCormack moves to a small town where rock ‘n’ roll and dancing have been banned, and his rebellious spirit shakes up the populace.Review: The original “Footloose” is one of those “time capsule” movies that captures the MTV pop culture of 1984 in such a dynamic way. It was a huge box office success, with the help of its multi-platinum soundtrack (which knocked Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” off the top of the Billboard charts). It made Kevin Bacon a star, it spawned a Broadway musical… and now, 27 years later, a remake… which is best described as a passionate love letter to the original classic. It treats the 1984 version with much respect… and includes numerous homages that true fans will recognize and appreciate. All of the studios doing remakes of these classic movies should take a lesson from this one. Basically, if you want to feel good… see this movie!
