Footloose (2011)

After a night of dancing and partying, a tragic car accident kills five friends. In the small town of Bomont, Georgia a ban is passed to prohibit any dancing within the town limits. Three years later, new kid Ren McCormick moves to Bomont from Boston, Massachusetts to lives with his aunt and uncle after the death of his mother. He begins to take notice of Ariel, the wild and rebellious daughter of the Reverend Shaw Moore. The music and dance numbers are high energy, but the characters lack any depth or appeal, especially the lead roles of Ren and Ariel, who were so terrifically played by Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer in the 1984 version. Do yourself a favor, brush this remake off and stick with the original classic. Starring Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Andie MacDowell, Dennis Quaid, Miles Teller 6/10 Rated PG-13
