Does “Footloose” Without Kevin Bacon Smell As Sweet?

By: Kate Torgovnick/Kate-Book.com / June 22, 2011

When I was a kid, the plot of a small town outlawing dancing didn’t seem at all ridiculous. Now, somehow it does. So I’m not sure what to think of the remake of “Footloose,” the tale of the new kid in town who swivels his hips into the life of the preacher’s daughter. I’m digging watching Julianne Hough try her hand at acting. But, Kenny Wormald? Well, he’s no Kevin Bacon. What do you think?
