‘Footloose’ Remake: Coming Soon To Obscurity

Footloose, the remake that nobody asked for and nobody’s excited for, is finally going to be hitting theaters. Note to executives: remaking cheesy 80s musicals, but taking the cheesy 80s-ness out of them, is not a great idea (see Fame from 2009). And casting a poor man’s Michael J. Fox in the lead role is also not a great idea. I never thought I’d say this, but I miss Kevin Bacon. Just try and play the Six Degrees of Separation game with his new replacement Kenny Wormald. There’s no way to link him to Elizabeth Perkins. Where’s the fun in that?
