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

All the Wayans in the world (Keenen Ivory Wayans and the least funny of the gang, Shawn Wayans, were lead Wayans' in the all-Wayans script) can't keep this from running out of mildly amusing ideas after 40 minutes.

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

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.

Pro forma and tasteless, if not excessively vulgar, the movie loses its urgency when it becomes an almost verbatim example of the melodrama it's skewering.

Limps along like it has a bunion the size of a cantaloupe.

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

Yes, it's rated PG-13, except it's also inappropriate for anyone over 13.

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.

When is someone going to think of the bright idea to do a parody on Wayans movies?

If you thought the world couldn't get enough of bad spoof movies, you thought wrong.

Footloose and fancy free of comedy.

Unfunny and a poor excuse for satire, Dance Flick follows in the poor tradition of appalling spoof films.

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

While there's certainly ample comedic sport to be had at the expense of the recent glut of overly melodramatic teen dance dramas, Dance Flick rarely stays on the beat.

The Wayanses have made a movie that elicits a few chuckles and a lot of long, awkward silences

Grueling, but mostly watchable. Funny? Not so much.

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.

Dance Flick isn't the bottom of the barrel, but for anyone who knew the Wayans family in their heyday, it's nothing but a scattershot disappointment.
