Dance Flick


Because I only review the finest in fine cinema, I present to you this review of Dance Flick. Having paid my dues with Save the Last Dance (dancing AND interracial romance? sold!), Centerstage, and Stomp the Yard, I went into this movie with no pretensions about what I was getting -- and I was pleasantly surprised. For a movie that clocks in under 90 minutes, it managed to squeeze in parodies of a bunch of movies, some I never even saw (Take the Lead, Twilight, High School Musical, Hairspray Part Deux: John Travolta Dance-Off). The movie was totally ridiculous, completely over-the-top, oftentimes offensive, and decently funny. It's cool to watch Damon Wayans, Jr. take up the crown of the already-too-large Wayans family empire, and Shoshana Bush has a goofy Sarah Chalke thing going for her that I dug. And Amy Sedaris plays a dance teacher with camel toe -- that woman is up for anything. Wait for it to come on Starz!, but don't hate yourself for watching the whole way through.

RATING: 55%

Badass photo, RKT.

I'll admit I'll miss (n)BNL, but I like RKT, too.

So, Loco, this is a movie to spend a hungover Sunday watching (and hating all decisions you've made to get you to that particular point in your life)?

Also, is it Loco or loco?

I'm in Austin. My friend here has a big house with no A/C. I'm sweating my ass off. Also, Austin still has a lot of hipsters. If I see another Honda Element with an Obama sticker on it (next to a [INSERT BAND SO COOL THEY WILL NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL] label, I might start a fight.

If you're going to become R Kelley Tag, I'm going to become (not) Brent Newland. Suck on that Loco.

This might be the perfect Sunday hangover movie, yes. But I planned and plotted to see this movie, and did not even want my money back. I also loved that, like Save the Last Dance, it had absolutely no resolution. Just like a literary story!

While I like to think of my friendship with Glenn as interracial, it's definitely not literary.
