Are You Guys Going to See The New Footloose Movie?

I don’t know if anyone in the world still has the need to cut loose, footloose, but if you do, I’d love to hear about it. Especially after seeing this horrendous trailer.  Personally, my only experience with Footloose was a misguided dance routine everyone in the eighth grade had to do at my middle school and countless Kevin Bacon jokes from one of my bros, but I’m thinking about boycotting this movie.  Just because Kevin Bacon deserves better.

Are you planning on checking out this here film?  Even better, can you guess which timeless treasure Hollywood will destroy next?

  • That looks AWFUL. I wish someone had been in that meeting when the reboot idea was spoken aloud and during the pregnant silence that had followed it, had gotten up and slapped the guy who suggested it. HARD.

  • WHY? WHY? That’s all I could think when I finished the clip. Why did Footloose have to be remade? The original was perfect! And of course they picked hip hop/crunk music this time around. Because that’s just so common in small southern towns nowadays…

    • My thoughts EXACTLY! I’m horrified that they’ve done this. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it and certainly don’t attempt to make it ‘better’. You’re just embarrassing yourself.

  • I WILL go see this, as I love the lead male – Kenny Wormald. He is soooooo hot!!! I never saw the original Footloose, so I will not have anything to compare it to…
