We all know the plot: cute teenager, Ren, finds himself in a southern town that has banned dancing. (Uh-oh). The rebellious young punk (in this case played by Kenny Wormald) practices his killer moves in secret while also attempting to woo the local preacher’s mega-hot daughter (played by Julianne Hough). What is a young man to do?!
If you’re thinking “why would they remake one of my favorites?!”, you’re not alone, but let’s just take a minute to review all of the redeeming qualities here:
1. A Cute Lead Actor: he’s got an accent, an upturned collar and skinny jeans . . . c’mon, let’s not be TOO picky.
2. Lovable Friendships and Bonding: City boy meets southern boy and they teach each other about life.
3. Wild Dance Party Scenes: From line dancing to crumping, the trailer tells all!
It may never be as good as the original, but for a girl who owns Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights, I’m definitely going to have to give it a whirl.
How about you, is Footloose 2011 Hot or Not?
