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

The Wayans are the masters of spoof.

It isn't highbrow -- or encumbered by scruples -- but the Wayanses retain their vulgar, adolescent derision of sex, class and race. In this bow down to Hollywood millennium, their irreverence is almost subversive.

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.

'Dance Flick' may be offensive to dancers and other living things, but it's also very funny.

The best Wayans movie since the first Scary Movie. The Wayans' are in top form taking the benchmarks of dance movies to an extreme degree. They can't keep it up, but it remains a solid satire with more to say than many quickie knock-offs.

For the die-hard fans of the spoof genre, this will be more of the same. But for the rest of us... well, it's more of the same, just in a worse way.

Amy Sedaris alone is worth the price of admission.

Can the audience stick with this flick that showed most of its funny bits in the trailer? For the most part, yeah.

Its belly laughs leave you feeling liberated and not guilty; I repeat, not guilty.

This send-up, created in large part by new-generation family members Damon Jr., Craig and Damien Dante Wayans, possesses a more nimble comic footing.

Not a perfect 10, but the Wayans crew hit their mark more than they miss.

a very funny, very entertaining film. Is it perfect? No way. Does it live up to the reputation of classic comedy spoofs like Airplane! and The Naked Gun? Well... yes.

The storylines function as thin threads to hold together set pieces, which mainly work thanks to tight writing and fast pacing (dud scenes, and there are several, breeze past).

I mean, come on: it's a scant 75 minutes long, contains a well-deserved swipe at the goofiness that is the Twilight saga, and features a beatboxing vagina. If that doesn't marginally entertain you, nothing will.

Who needs Middle Eastern oil when the Wayans Brothers project enough energy for U.S. needs until the next Wayans comedy?

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.
