As the title of this review suggests this remake isn't actually a complete nightmare! I am a true fan of the original so I wasn't sure what to expect from this when I first saw the trailer...But I actually really enjoyed it. It is pretty much a word for word remake with only a couple of teaks, and you will severely miss Kevin Bacon's presence if you are a fan of the 80s version. Having said that though, the guy who plays Willard is hilarious and perfect for the role and the dancing is brilliant.
Its simply a feel good and enjoyable film, however nothing outstanding and a little corny at times. But if your like me and enjoy a bit of fluff every now and then, I'd recomend it.
