Not as good, but not too badBy EmHove (24 reviews) from Brighton , 11 Feb 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]I grew up on the original so this was never going to match up however that said, this doesn't do a bad job. I still prefer the original but as other reviews have said, this isn't about preference. It sticks as much to the storyline as possible, and has the all singing all dancing ending that we all want! My main criticism would be the quality of the acting, though I guess you don't watch films like this for strong actors. Still made me smile, if you want a cheesy, girly film then this does the trick, glad to hear a lot of the orginal soundtrack being used too

Good fun!By yanbart (135 reviews) , 05 Nov 2013Enjoyable fun family film. Don't think I have ever seen the original so I can't compare but it is just that, good fun!
Stick with the originalBy amydays (19 reviews) , 29 Aug 2013Just no. The original is cheesy as hell, but it's an 80's film which can get away with the cheesy lines and awkward dancing (it's actually a favourite of mine) but the remake is absolutely dire. Avoid if possible.
Good, but not as great as firstBy Scoobiedoo91 (7 reviews) , 02 Aug 2013I did like the film, as both Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald are very good actors and love Julianne Hough. But, didn't seem as good as the original and only a little updated, where I think they could have gone a little further.
worth a watchBy iron (3 reviews) , 19 Jul 2013i added this to my list for a laugh ive seen the origional and it appealed to me,, so i thought id add the remake and see what its like,, actually not bad good tunes not bad acting
Amazing !!!!By Kayceeflutterby (4 reviews) , 12 Feb 2013Before I rented this film I was wanting to see it but didn't want to buy it incase I didn't like it. But OMG! I absolutley loved it! Julianne Hough is one of my favourite actresses and she was amazing in this as well as the male lead. Nothing like what I imagined, but in a good way. I would say this film is for musical/dance enthusiasts. This film is soooo good that I ended up buying it on Blu Ray!
