VIDEO: First Look at the New “Footloose” Movie.

The first trailer for the upcoming reconceptualization of “Footloose” is out. (the one whose starring role was nearly played by Zac Efron, and then Chayce Crawford.) Story: Same idea. Town bans dancing. Teens struggle with their innate desire to gyrate. Tears are shed, skinny ties are worn. (maybe) and adults eventually come to realize that the only thing crazier and more irrational than a teenager is their parents.  There are several winks and nods to the original – a volkswagon bug with a sticky door, a ‘big lug learning to dance’ montage - but it looks like they’ve thrown in a new reason that kids should do anything but dance. Everybody cut, everybody cut…

Here’s the trailer! And below that, an EXCEPTIONAL scene from Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion where Romy and Michele ‘sing’ along to the Footloose theme, botching the lyrics along the way in hysterical fashion…

And while I’ve suddenly realized this has become a post about Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, I’ve accepted it. Here’s part two of the Footloose song. Lisa Kudrow is a genuis.
