I like movie trailers. So sue me.

“Footloose” Trailer: Wait, These Kids Are In High School?

leave a comment »

Surprise: Paramount Pictures remade Footloose! The movie tells the story of a high school kid growing up in a small town where dancing has been outlawed. Why? ‘Cause three years before, five kids died in a car crash when they were coming home from a dance.

You’d expect there to be at least some ’80s songs in the movie, considering it’s a remake of the film that came out in 1984. HA HA HA HA! NO! This movie’s got as much bumpin’, grindin’, twistin’ and whatever other -in’ stuff kids do at dances today. What a faithful remake. *end sarcasm*

The movie’s two leads are some guy named Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough, from Dancing With the Stars. They both play high school kids, but…


Kenny Wormald IS 26 YEARS OLD. 26! What the heck?! Julianne Hough is also 22. They could have cast some actual high school students. Andie MacDowell and Dennis Quaid are in the movie too, but that just seems kind of out of the blue.

*sigh* Another terrible dance movie. Will studios ever learn? (I’m not surprised that MTV is a part of this, though.)

Bonus: Something much better from the Rotten Tomatoes Show, which gets it right every time.
