    Feel-good quality fare.
  2. Bootmen, which proves to be a real heart-tugger, is in fact accomplished in all its aspects.

    Silly in some parts, but sheer fun in most, Bootmen will get you wiggling in your seat with a big grin pasted on your face.

    One expects razzle-dazzle dance sequences to lift this movie above its clichés, but they are few and far between, which is not only disappointing, it's downright baffling.
  5. It delivers commendable entertainment value.

    "Footloose" meets "The Full Monty" in Bootmen, a cliché-ridden tap dance drama.

    The film's overburdened, silly plot renders it a disaster.

    An Aussie Billy Eliot with a great dance sequence at the end. Makes you want to learn tap.
