But, not everyone was so excited. 

"I'm totally OK with Kevin Bacon + Kenny Loggins killing those responsible for remaking #Footloose and turning it into Stomp 2," cracked Dennis Jenders.

Kimberly Boston recommended to others, saying, "Footloose was awesome... for a remake. Highly suggest you go and see it!"

Cheeseboy22 exclaimed, "I absolutely refuse to see a Footloose movie with no Bacon included!"

"Worst. Clearasil. Commercial. Ever. #footloose," sniped Dustin Rowles. 

"Whoever decided remaking Footloose was a good idea should have their birthday taken away," said Kellen James.

"People angry that "Footloose" is being remade probably need to admit to themselves that the first one shouldn't have been made either," Craig Calcaterra said.
