After seeing the 2012 Footloose remake last night, I honestly can’t see what the big deal is. Is it because it is a remake and therefore evil by existing?
All in all it is not a movie to get worked up over. My complaint of the movie is that is too much like the original. While it did try to update some of the events, it did preserve most of the plot and remaking some of the iconic scenes in exacting detail.
Also, while the inclusion of the songs from the first movie was a good move in my estimation, giving them a rockabilly twang does not work for me.
