Feel-good quality fare.

Silly in some parts, but sheer fun in most, Bootmen will get you wiggling in your seat with a big grin pasted on your face.

New York Daily News
What sets Bootmen apart from the vast competition is its exuberant, sexy tap-dancing, but that's mostly relegated to the grand finale.
50
Chicago Tribune
What it gains in fun, the film loses in credibility, as the production number itself more closely resembles a high-priced Las Vegas extravaganza than a quickly organized charity event.
50
Clichés negate bona fides; hence, the movie feels like a corny Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland vehicle with cussing. That said, the tapping is fabulous.

Austin Chronicle
It delivers commendable entertainment value.

Mr. Showbiz
"Footloose" meets "The Full Monty" in Bootmen, a cliché-ridden tap dance drama.
38
Chicago Sun-Times
Bootmen is the story of a young dancer and his friends who revisit the cliches of countless other dance movies in order to bring forth a dance performance of clanging unloveliness.
25
New York Post
There's 80 minutes of mawkish, overacted melodrama - laced with gratuitous violence and profanity - before we get to anything more than the briefest snippet of a dance number.
25
San Francisco Chronicle
The film's overburdened, silly plot renders it a disaster.
