    Default Footloose trailer

    The trailer for the modern-day 'Footloose' is released - can it live up to the original?

    As hard as it is to imagine 'Footloose' without Kevin Bacon, it is nearly upon us, with the trailer for the 2011 reboot released this week.

    And the critics are hardly raving about the sneak peek they have had.

    While the trailer follows the same plot points as the 1980s classic, fans say something just doesn't feel right about the remake, starring Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough and Dennis Quaid.

    But decide for yourself. Here is 2011's take on teenagers defying authority through dance:

    Hopefully the next trailer will be better than this one....I can't believe
    Dennis Quaid is in it.

    Why do they have to remake this? It does look like the same storyline, it just got a 2011 makeover.

    I don't really care for that Julianne Hough. I thought she was a dancer. Now she has moved into singing and acting? Uggg! She doesn't seem like someone that will be a great triple threat, but it seems she is pushing for it. And she has her boyfriend Ryan to help push her career.

    Thank goodness for trailers. It doesn't just tell me what movies I should see, but it also tells me what movies NOT to see

    The original sucked. This should be even worse.

    Again, Hollywood cannot come up with oriignal ideas so they decide to do a remake that is sure to bomb. It does not take a brain surgeon to figure that out.

    Julianne Hough simply cannot pass for a high school student, and I agree that she doesn't strike me as a triple threat judging from this trailer.
