Your Resource For Local Family Fun


Not yet rated; likely PG-13. In theaters 10/14. Ok for kids 14+.  http://www.footloosemovie.com/

It’s always an iffy proposition when you remake a classic movie, especially when it’s as iconic as 1984’s Footloose (or Dirty Dancing, another upcoming remake). No one can take the place of Kevin Bacon (or Patrick Swayze), but newcomer Kenny Wormald will give it a go in this updated version of Footloose, directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan). Wormald plays Ren MacCormack, a Boston transplant who relocates to the small southern town of Bomont, where a few years ago, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out. Bomont's councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Of course, we all know what happens. Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister's troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough).
