everybody cut, everybody cut

That's right they are remaking Footloose (see trailer).

I'm not sure how I feel about it.

I have a very strong feeling I'm not going to relate to it like I did the original back in the day. I mean, Ren and Ariel were everything I thought teenagers should be when I was 10.

This morning, me and the girls watched the final dance scene -- it being the only part that a) is appropriate for them and, b) they would want to watch anyway.

And like everybody, they cut footloose!

And no, that's not my camera making that reflective "light bubble" frame -- that is just the awesomeness of the filmmakers. That and the raining glitter throughout the scene makes for 80's perfection.

If you haven't seen it in awhile, you should watch it here, I promise it will take you back (and put a grin on your face).

Soooo 80s! Just kidding. But now the song is in my head. And what is up with all the remakes? Clearly Hollywood is out of ideas.

I have that song in my head for sure. I love to watch kids dance. Wonder if the new will be as big of a hit.
