  • "Footloose" meets "The Full Monty" in Bootmen, a cliché-ridden tap dance drama.

  • What it gains in fun, the film loses in credibility, as the production number itself more closely resembles a high-priced Las Vegas extravaganza than a quickly organized charity event.

  • What sets Bootmen apart from the vast competition is its exuberant, sexy tap-dancing, but that's mostly relegated to the grand finale. show more
