If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Obviously, that was the thinking of everyone involved with this remake (out Oct. 14) of the 1984 classic flick Footloose.
In fact, there are so many things here that remind us of the original, you almost can't help but wonder, why did they even redo it in the first place? Of course, had they gone and severely altered what came before, well, it would have been sheer sacrilege.
That all being said, though, what we do end up with here looks to be a lot of fun. Julianne Hough, as the preacher's daughter, actually appears to be a pretty good actress, and relative newcomer Kenny Wormald seems to fill Kevin Bacon's dancing shoes rather nicely.
Oh, and did we mention, fun? Who doesn't like dancing?
