A while back I watched Footloose with Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer, now I have the opportunity to watch it again with fresh faces but totally the same story-line as it seems. The dancing seems a little different though, although the plot seems to be happening in the same period of time. Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough are the stars to this remake and based on the trailer – it is going to be a yawn-fest or just a good entertainment into a lonely Friday night (when everything is tolerable). Wormald is a fresh actor so I don’t know if he is gonna be good but the dancing would be perfect cause he has done it since he was 6. All in all it seems like a bad new version of a classic that wasn’t great to begin with – what’s next, remake of Breakfast at Tiffany’s? I don’t think so I don’t enjoy the remakes that much but at the same time Star Trek remake was well done (and a lot of people liked the Tron remake as well).  Oh, I just simply don’t know, a remake just needs a good script, an awesome cast and a superb director – something that this Footloose doesn’t seem to have.
