Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald – Footloose thoughts & pixs

Hey, hey! What’s this I see? I thought this was a party. LET’S DANCE!

There’s a new Footloose in town. The heart of the story is there, but in the mix is a little bit of contemporary now.

These girls loved it. It’s such a good toe tapping movie it could use a little update. The original Footloose was made in 1984 and was the star turner for Philadelphia’s Kevin Bacon. I was surprised how many young people had seen the original; they are the next generation and will love this movie as much as the original because it’s updated.
I’m gonna age myself here and say some of the dance scenes in Footloose 2011 did make me a little uncomfortable and I wanted to ban dancing or at least grinding til kids are 25 or maybe confine it to the privacy of their home.

Kim Karpinksi, Sheila Foster and Courtney Brant participated in a dance skit that may be included in a promo of the film.

It felt like a big summer movie and I’m surprised it’s opening in the Fall. I wouldn’t call it ground breaking drama, but it might just be this generations Outsiders, well unless they remake that film too.

Reflecting on the past 10 years this weekend, and keeping the people who lives are troubled in my prayers.
