100 Days of Jules, Day 14: This Savage NYT Review of Footloose Only Mentions Hough Once

Here is where I attempt to blog about Julianne Hough for 100 days straight. This was inspired by Allie Jones' 500 blogs on Kristin Cavallari, a much funnier read.

While doing my due diligence as a bad blogger reporter, I came across The New York Times review of the 2011 remake of Footloose.

There are so many things WRONG with the review. First, it basically says that the movie is bad (wow, i am so offended, nyt), then it says Kenny Wormald, who plays Ren McCormick didn't do a good job, which is so wrong, Kenny is literally an amazing dancer and a fine actor and also so hot, wow, do you remember that reality show Dance Life on MTV? Kenny was a dancer on it and at the time he was dating Ashley from the Pussycat Dolls and it was an AMAZING show and Kenny is amazing and so hot, did I mention that, he deserved more from NYT, smh.

BUT WOW, JULES MUST HAVE PISSED SOMEONE OFF because the 615-word review mentions her only once!!!!! Just to basically say yes, she was in the movie, but does not review her performance at all, i am laughing, like, she's the star of the movie, like obviously Kenny is but Julianne was already famous at this point and this was her first big acting role and NYT didn't even bother to review her performance. (Miles Teller, however, got like an entire paragraph, ok, calm down, he's fine.)

So because I am constantly picking up NYT's slack, I will review Hough's performance for them.

*puts on newsboy cap to write seriously*

Julianne Hough plays Ariel Moore, a troubled preacher's daughter, whose brother's death caused the town's authorities to officially outlaw dancing. To no one's surprise, considering she's a two-time Dancing With The Stars champion, Hough more than delivers when it comes to the dancing scenes. But more than that, Hough is convincing as a high school senior looking to escape her hometown. In real life Hough is the daughter of a Mormon politician, so it's likely she had a lot to draw from, but opposite Kenny Wormald, Hough comes alive on screen.

THERE YOU GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
