Rev. Shaw Moore:
*He* is testing us. Our Lord is testing us. Especially now, when we are consumed with despair. When we are asking our God why this had to happen. No parent should ever have to know the horror of burying their own child. And yet, five of Bomont's brightest have lost their lives. Among them, my only son... my boy, Bobby.

I was pretty disappointed with this version of Footloose. What makes
Footloose such an enjoyable movie/musical is the music. Aside from a
brief incorporation of the title song in the beginning, and a couple of
the songs used as background music throughout the movie, this movie
neglected its musical roots altogether! What a waste...
There were some fun dance scenes but I found myself unable to enjoy
them fully because of the blatant display of Julianne Hough's
sexuality. I have some words to say to the costume designer. To be
fair, her character was supposed to look and act like a slut. Still, I
found that the powers at be went overboard with that depiction in this
Kenny Wormald was a likable protagonist, Ren. His sidekick, Willard,
played by Miles Teller was utterly preposterous however. I felt sorry
for people who live in small towns in Georgia. Willard did not do much
to convey a positive view of their lifestyle and culture.
If you like dancing, you might find this movie enjoyable for the dance
scenes. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend it.
