  • Summary: Dance Flick is a hilarious new comedy that brings together the talents of two generations of the Wayans family, the explosively funny clan who brought us the “Scary Movie” franchise and “White Chicks,” as well as the groundbreaking TV series “In Living Color.” In Dance Flick, a young street dancer, Thomas Uncles, from the wrong side of the tracks and a beautiful young woman, Megan White, are brought together by their passion for dancing and put to the test in the mother of all dance battles.

  1. Enjoyably dirty-minded sendup of when-ballet-met-hip-hop youth musicals.
  2. Its belly laughs leave you feeling liberated and not guilty; I repeat, not guilty.
  3. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig
    Dance Flick occasionally hits its mark with nimble execution. But too often it stumbles clumsily into bad taste.
  4. 42
    It would be hard to imagine a film with less going for it than Dance Flick.
  5. Reviewed by: Aaron Hillis
    The gags themselves only marginally work when they stick to silly non sequitur; the random movie references are forced and flat, and the takeoffs of "Dreamgirls" and "Fame" songs would make "Weird Al" groan.
  6. There's an art to making a good spoof, but good luck finding it in Dance Flick, not only because the movie goes for easy toilet humor, but because it often relies on it to stay afloat.

    Its funny but the plot is unorganized and unmemorable in almost every way. Its passable when you watch it just to mostly see the humor.

    Dance flick floats, barely, but what keeps it from sinking with those lame, awful and old jokes are some that are creative and funny, even if they do get a little dirty.But what do you expect, there the wayans brothers. Expand
