Get prepared for a guilty pleasure flick!  In the 2011 remake of the 1984 film, Footloose brings back city kid Ren MacCormack (Kenny Wormald) who moves from Boston to a small town where dancing has been banned after a tragic accident. MacCormack isn’t as readily willing to give up dancing as the rest of the town, and he sets out on a mission to bring it back. When he unexpectedly becomes attracted to the preacher’s daughter, Ariel (Julianne Hough), it causes drama as the preacher is the main culprit in the ban against dancing and rock ‘n roll. Although remakes are rarely better than originals, there’s no doubt that the quality dance moves in this flick will leave you with a great feeling.

Cupid’s Advice:

It can be difficult to make a relationship work if your significant other’s parents don’t like you. Cupid has some tips:

1. Make amends: Although you may not be able to fully solve the problem, it’s important to encourage your partner’s parents to come around to you. Send them flowers or have a heart-to-heart conversation if need be.

2. Analyze the situation: Find out the facts about why your mate’s parents aren’t a big fan of you. If there are legit concerns, address them directly. If the concerns seem unwarranted, talk to your boyfriend or girlfriend about it.

3. Change: If your partner’s parents are right in their view of you, then it might mean you need to change the way you go about doing things. Sometimes change can be a good thing.
