You knew it was coming eventually: that they would make a spoof about the plethora of dance movies that have come out the past several years. Thankfully, this new one called Dance Flick isn't written by those two fuck-tards behind Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, and all those other dumbass "movie" spoofs. It is written by the Wayans (and dear God just look at the trailer credits, I swear they have the whole damn family involved in the movie!)
The main film they spoof is Save the Last Dance, which is a tad odd seeing as though that film came out like eight years ago! Anywho, it follows the story of a young girl who stopped dancing after her mom died and has to move to the "rough neighborhood" with her father. There she goes to this performing arts academy, makes friends with the local "coloreds" and rediscovers her love for dancing. Oh, and she falls in love with this film's Mandingo who also shares her passion for dancing. He decides to help her get into Juilliard. Now, if those two idiots that wrote the other spoof movies wrote this one, it would seem dumb, but the trailer for this one looks mildly amusing.
The Wayans are getting back to what they do best: making the topic of race funny. They did it with White Girls and so many other films in the past. What's funnier than trying to teach an uppity white girl hip hop and having her fall in love with a black dude that doesn't want the "sistas" to know he's skiing in the Rockies? Does all of this sound familiar? From the looks of the trailer, they will also be spoofing Step Up, You Got Served, and a myriad of other stupid as hell dance movies. I will be reserving judgement on this spoof. If it turns out as stupid as previous spoofs done by the Wayans' former partners, then this genre is TRULY dead!
