Footloose (2011)

3

The original Footloose with iPods

Essentially the original with iPods, Craig Brewer’s faithful reprise of the Kevin Bacon favourite probably has even less right to exist than Gus Van Sant’s Psycho. But if we’re going to re-live every minute of the ’80s, it might as well be done with this kind of gusto as city kid Kenny Wormald bucks against a draconian small town’s no-dancing rules. Wormald is no actor but he can sure cut a rug, while Dennis Quaid lends surprising nobility to the John Lithgow preacher role. How about another crack at it in 2039?
