FROM MTV MOVIES: Let’s dance! The remake of “Footloose” hit theaters on Friday (October 14), and the critics have weighed in. The dance flick revisits the 1984 original’s story about a teen (played by newcomer Ken Wormald) who moves to a conservative town that has outlawed dancing; the new kid shakes things up in more ways than one.
“Footloose” seems to be holding on with a 74 percent fresh rating at the review-aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes and, overall, the verdict is a resounding “better than we thought it would be.”
We rounded up a sampling of some of the reviews to give you an idea of what to expect if you decide to bust a move and hit the theater.
