I just wanted to take a moment to thank the good people behind this Footloose remake for turning what was one of my favorite flicks as a child into what is essentially Step Up crossed with a hand full of shit. There’s a lot of ways you could go wrong with a remake, and this two minute and 33 second trailer outlines almost all of them. There’s not even a hint of the Kenny Loggins song, and without the Kenny Loggins song, there’s no movie. That, in addition to Kevin Bacon and Chris Penn’s goofy earnest charm was the movie. It wasn’t a dance movie, it was a movie with dance in it. This? This is crap. Hot steaming crap that will melt on your chest.

This trailer has broken my soul. I want Kevin Bacon to do to this movie what he did to the assholes in Death Sentence.
