After hometown hero BTRO is slain on the dance platform by thug leader L Dubba E, his protégé younger brother JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into isolation, vowing never to duel again.

Critic Reviews for The FP

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (12) | DVD (3)

Rather than crafting a movie that's so bad it's good, writer-director brothers Jason and Brandon Trost have come up with something that's just plain bad -- and boring, and repetitive.

Associated Press
Top Critic

"The FP" so desperately wants to be cultishly admired for its bad-taste rollout of wacko characters, ugly costumes and vulgar slang that it forgets to be genuinely offbeat or funny.

You need to find a room full of people who get the joke and see this movie there, because audiences will be laughing so hard they'll be screaming.

San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

It falls all over itself to lampoon its midnight-movie forebears even as it borrows their contrivances.

New York Times
Top Critic

"The FP" works best as an operatic parody of mixed genres with lunacy on the fringes.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

Neither obliviously dreadful enough to be "so bad it's good,'' nor intentionally tongue-in-cheek enough to be funny.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

The film only embraces the most superficial aspects of the genre. The heart, the soul and the melodrama are all missing.

Full Review… | August 22, 2012

Given its low budget, it's amazing "The FP" looks as good as it does. The lighting is superb, the sets highlight its post-apocalyptic atmosphere, and the score ridiculous. "The FP" has cult classic written all over it and it knows it.

I missed the train when The FP was first leaving the station, but I'm firmly on-board now...

Film Threat

The FP is a mostly serious, straight-faced spoof of misogynistic gangland B-movies and sports dramas, and rarely does it fail to deliver sparks of originality and sly comedy.

Full Review… | June 22, 2012

The FP works for its audience, a rowdy crowd of midnight movie fans willing to put up with over-the-top silliness, bad performances, and general lunacy.

Full Review… | March 22, 2012

There is some serious talent in front of and behind the camera and with a better script they might be able to create something funny and unique.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

The FP functions perfectly as a cult movie, but its ambition never feels bigger than to achieve that benchmark.

The Playlist

You'll have more fun hosting your own Dance Dance Revolution battles than watching The FP.

Television Without Pity

The film's goofy heart and soul (yes, it has one) is what sticks with you in the end and makes this crazed film into a potential cult-movie masterpiece.

Austin Chronicle

Just when you think they've gone too far, the Trost brothers 1) go further and 2) wink. It turns out to be a winning combination of gestures.

Full Review… | March 15, 2012

People talk repeatedly about street cred and say 'For realz,' which I can only assume the script spellz with a z ... The FP means to be terrible, and it is.

Full Review… | March 15, 2012

The FP has a one-note joke of a conceit, and when that runs out, it has few actual jokes to fill the humorless void.

Audience Reviews for The FP

In the future rival gangs fight for control of a lawless suburban town, gaining power and street cred by winning dance video game duels. You have to give THE FP credit for playing the goofy idea straight, but unfortunately the overall message seems to be that the wannabe gangsters of the apocalypse will be just as annoying as today's youth are.

Shit's tough in the FP.

The FP Quotes

You shoulda seen it BLT. JTRO was all like bop bop bop, just making connections. Bitch fired off a few lucky shots, but JTRO jumped his ass and was like Bow to the Bridge, Yo Kick it! Believ' dat!
