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.

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

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.

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

If there exists anyone in the comedy business less funny than the Wayans clan, it's Amy Sedaris, so she's here, too.

The jokes here aren't just low-hanging fruit, they are fruit lazily taken out of the moldy pile.

Dance Flick occasionally hits its mark with nimble execution. But too often it stumbles clumsily into bad taste.

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.

Yeah, it sucks. No surprises there. Just a warning for anyone considering watching this to see Amy Sedaris, don't bother - she is in it for like a minute. The rest of it is exactly what you would expect for this type of movie. A few laughs, though I hate to admit it, but yeah, lame.
