  • Footloose 2011 is harmless as far as it goes, but on the dance floor and off it never goes nearly far enough. show more

  • The new Footloose does everything it needs to do. It's a vibrant youth musical that will appeal to audiences who haven't seen the 1984 original. And it has enough charm and life to it to compete with the memory of the earlier version. show more

  • Silly as it was, the first movie had a more innocent and campy spirit than this calculated, if faithful, redo. show more
