Andie MacDowell and Quaid 'an old married couple'

Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
Craig Brewer directs a remake of the 1984 musical with a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. Like the original, the 2011 adaptation of Footloose follows a city kid named Ren McCormack (Kenny Wormald) as he moves to the old fashioned and uptight town of Bomont, Tennessee, where he winds up rebelling against its laws banning dancing and rock music. Julianne Hough plays his love interest, Ariel Moore.

Andie MacDowell and Dennis Quaid feel like an "old married couple".

The 'Footloose' co-stars - who play Reverend Shaw Moore and his wife Vi in the dance movie remake - previously starred together as a married couple in 'Dinner with Friends' and Andie says they easily slipped back into playing each other's spouses.

She explained: "You know we worked together before on 'Dinner With Friends' so we joked that we'd already been married, we're an old married couple, so I do think that helped with being comfortable, already having been married once. It felt like we had been married.

While Andie loved working with Dennis, she was also impressed by their younger co-stars, newcomer Kenny Wormald and dancer Julianne Hough and says they have bright futures ahead of them.

She told MoviesOnline.ca: "They're so talented. I think the great thing about Kenny and what he has to offer is he's truly a great dancer, that's where he's going to steal your heart. When he starts to dance, that's it, it's all over. You love him. He's just such a good person that I hope for him that he becomes a big star.

"And Julianne too, they worked so hard. The scene in the church, that was very difficult. And I've been in the position that they've been in where everything's on your shoulders and they carried the movie. You're doing it, there's nobody else. Of course, there's the crew and everybody else, but ultimately it's on their shoulders and they really pulled it off. They did a great job. And the dancing's fantastic."
