Kenny Wormald steps into Kevin Bacon’s shoes in the remake of Footloose, which hit theatres on October 14, 2011! Kidzworld has the movie review.

Small Town Living

After the death of his mother, high school senior Ren MacCormack leaves his big city life in Boston to live with his aunt and uncle in the small town of Beaumont, Texas. He’s bewildered when he learns about some of the strange laws in Beaumont, including no playing loud music and no dancing in public. The laws were put in place three ago, when five seniors lost their lives in a car accident after a public dancing event. But enforcing these laws is difficult with kids like Ren in town.

The Pretty Girl

Ren meets the beautiful Ariel, whose brother was killed in the accident. Since her brother’s death, Ariel has become a wild child, looking for cheap thrills and dating an older (not to mention creepy) guy. But Ariel is attracted to Ren, and as their relationship grows, Ariel’s ex-boyfriend isn’t the only one standing in their way. Ariel’s father is the town reverend, and he wants Ren to stay away from his daughter. A few mishaps with the law put Ren in his bad books.

The Petition

Ren decides to start a petition in order to abolish the public dancing law. Despite his inspirational speech at the town meeting and hundreds of signatures, Beaumont’s authorities refuse to give in. But that doesn’t stop Ren. His boss at the cotton gin, which is located just over the border in the next town, offers his business as the location for the senior prom. So the senior class of Beaumont gets their prom after all. But will the reverend ever realize that Ren isn’t such a bad guy?

The Bottom Line

Footloose offers a great plot and catchy music! If you see it in theatres, make sure you wear your dancing shoes because you’ll be ready to move when you walk out the doors!
