* RealityIsUnrealistic: It's based on an actual 80's news story. The movie nods to this when Willard tells Ren about states with similar laws to Bomont.

Not to be confused with [[Webcomic/{{Footloose}} the webcomic]] of the same name, '''''Footloose''''' is an 80's Paramount musical about a young man who, after finding himself under the rule of a harsh religious regime, bands together a group of allies to rise up and speak out against the laws that are oppressing their right of expression.

* CorruptHick: Subverted with Reverend Moore, who genuinely thinks he's doing the right thing. He is also willing to listen to Ren's argument, and stops a group of people burning "unseemly" books from the library. Principal Dunbar is a straighter example; his [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalism]], up to and including BookBurning, creeps out the Reverend.

* SettingUpdate: The remake takes place in modern times, naturally. It also introduces a tiny bit of a problem that RogerEbert noted in his review. Namely, that while Moore, in 1984, could conceivably have grown up without rock music really being a part of his life (and thus scapegoat it), this would be practically impossible in 2011, other than his being raised to be ''much'' more of a religious fundamentalist than he is.
