I may like this genre of comedy, but a film like this makes me hope it's going to fade soon.

The material is weak, the focus is too narrow, the pacing is laboured, as if the editors were cutting in anticipation of the laugh track.

I'm trying to think of something nice to say about this movie but I'm drawing a blank.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a genre that has met with some success must be in want of parody.

This intermittently funny spoof on dance movies has more Wayans in it than actual laughs.

The main problem is its sheer laziness. Where the likes of Airplane! ...had a soft spot for the genre they were satirising and used that to cleverly subvert expectations and provide surprises, everything about Dance Flick is tame.

As indignity and amateurishness battle for depressing precedence, Dance Flick becomes the comedy equivalent of torture porn, albeit with worse SFX and notably fewer laughs.

To say they fail is to insult the word fail. Scene for scene, there were probably more chuckles in The Reader.

This comedy is so bad it will make you want to tear out your eyeballs and use them as ear plugs.

Aims at the lowest common denominator of taste and falls well below its target.
Ben Rawson-Jones
Digital Spy
August 24, 2009
Cheap, dire, tedious, unfunny, offensive and desperate attempt to induce laughter. Those are just a small selection of the disparaging adjectives that can be applied to this putrid tripe.

A musical spoof with two left feet and no rhythm.

I's even more depressing that the laughs are tumbleweed-thin on the ground and so unfathomably groan-worthy.

Fart jokes and fat gags are top of the agenda in this flat-footed parody.

The genre is ripe for mocking. But this steers clear of smart observational comedy and goes for gross-out every time.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Toothless and obvious, even its 'best' gag - a farting-ballerina set piece - was done more effectively, for free, on YouTube a year ago.

The simple strategy behind the film? Step one: take an iconic scene from a popular film. Step two: add either a) a black stereotype, b) a fart, a burp or some other bodily function, or c) a gay joke. Step three: double-check it's offensive.

Daily Mail [UK]

A depressingly stupid parody of movies such as Save The Last Dance and Step Up, this relies even more than their previous films on toilet humour.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/5

Less a movie and more a series of sorry sketches, Dance Flick is about as bad as it gets.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Most of the humour is obvious and the rest of it is adolescent at best. There are only so many jokes about bodily functions or homosexuality one person can stand.
