  • Movie Reviews: Dance Flick

    Directed By: Damien Dante Wayans
    Written By: Damien Dante Wayans, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans and Craig Wayans
    Casts: Shoshana Bush, Damon Wayans, Jr, Affion Crockett, Essence Atkins, David Alan Grier

    Wayans Brothers are back together with their latest project Dance Flick – a film spoof-ing popular dance-based movies (Save the Last Dance, Step Up, You Got Served, Hairspray, Fame, Roll Bounce). Trying to reclaim or show that they are the funniest family alive, the Wayans’ attempt was a major failure and showed no comedic originality. Dance Flick is a movie about a rich, suburban white girl Megan White (Shoshana Bush) who moves into the inner city and meets¬† street-smart Thomas (Damon Wayans, Jr.) who helps her along the way to continue to pursue her dreams of dancing. Sounds familiar? Save the Last Dance told a better and more promising story. The dialogue is a collection of various scenes from the “dance” movies showing zero connection and making the storyline hard to follow. It did not contain a solid and consistent structure which immediately fail to grab my attention. The trailers spilled all the funny scenes leaving no room for any others, therefore there was NOTHING funny.¬† Scary Movie 2 and 3 were directed and produced better. Even those movies aren’t the best but the quality is a lot better than Dance Flick. Overall, I wish I could get my 12 bucks back but sometimes you win some and sometimes you lose some. I definitely lost. I am highly disappointed with the Wayans Brother. Major Payne was a funnier movie to me than this. And guess what? It made sense. One advice to the Wayans Brothers, make sure the movie and dialogue flows before you release it to the public.

    On a brighter note, big shoutouts to Kardinal Offishall, Boi 1da and the Clipse – their track “Set It Off” was the second or third song in the movie.

    Ratings: Wait till it appears on television. PLEASE spend you money on Star Trek or something else.

    If you seen Dance Flick, let me know what your thoughts are. Did you like or dislike the movie?

      So cheezed! The movie was whack and I actually believe Marlon when he said that outside the trailer there were more funny parts, he was right there was ONE! I was so excited to see this trash bag movie now I want my money back. Not just my money for the film but the money I spent on the over priced popcorn chicken, fries supreme and the BIG ASS drink, big for no damn reason. We coulda gone to Jack Astors and got sum bowties and called it a day-SO CHEEZED! I Digress, now I want Jack Astors…
