Dance Flick (2009)



Critic Consensus: Dance Flick scores a few laughs thanks to the Wayans brothers' exuberance, but it's ultimately a scattershot collection of gags without much direction.

Critic Reviews for Dance Flick

All Critics (93) | Top Critics (19)

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.

The genre is ripe for mocking. But this steers clear of smart observational comedy and goes for gross-out every time.

Top Critic

Fans of their Scary Movie and its sequels know what to expect, though perhaps even they will notice here a thinning in the comedy and a coarsening in its misogynist and homophobic riffs. Not an honest laugh in 90 minutes.

Top Critic

In this enjoyably dirty-minded sendup of when-ballet-met-hip-hop youth musicals, the Wayans brothers hand the directorial reigns over to their nephew, Damien Dante Wayans, who piles on the stupid/smart gags with just the right what-the-hell abandon.

Audience Reviews for Dance Flick

Dumb and unfunny. A waste of time, Dance Flick doesn't bring the laughs of Scary Movie first movies.

Funny at times, there was a few laughs here and there. Not one of the best films that take the piss out of other films but wasn't all that bad. I would still reccommend it.

I think I liked this more than most just because I like the spoof comedies. Worth watching if you enjoy the satire of spoofs.
