I cringe at the music I imagine they've put in this film. Just looking at the pics in the review I recognise a lot from the original, which I happened to watch on BD the other day.

i watched this out of sheer curiosity and i have to question what the point was. it's literally a scene for scene remake of the original. except for updating it with more current music (mostly), it's the same movie. even much of the dialogue is word for word from the original. such a waste of time. don't bother with it.

Ah, that's what I was afraid of. Footloose is pretty outdated by today's standards (you could probably even argue that it was when the original came out, too). The only real warrant I would see to it is trying to bring some new spin on the concept and plot, but doing a direct remake like that is really kind of stupid.
