Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Clearly, Brewer has come to praise Footloose, not to bury it, and so he leaves Dean Pitchford's screenplay more or less intact. The result is one of the more pleasant surprises of 2011.

- Alonso Duralde, TheWrap, Thursday, October 13, 2011

Fresh: Brewer has delivered a largely unobjectionable note-for-note facsimile of Herbert Ross's ode to teenage rebellion, young love and the unfettered joy of movement.

- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, October 14, 2011

Fresh: An unnecessary, though enjoyable, remake of Kevin Bacon's 1984 breakout hit.

- Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Monday, October 24, 2011

What the hell? Why is Zac Efron in so many movies these days?! Yeah well, that little girl won't stop me from watching good films, even if it means having to look at him.
