Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The genre is ripe for mocking. But this steers clear of smart observational comedy and goes for gross-out every time."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"If there exists anyone in the comedy business less funny than the Wayans clan, it's Amy Sedaris, so she's here, too."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"I may like this genre of comedy, but a film like this makes me hope it's going to fade soon."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a genre that has met with some success must be in want of parody."
‑ Cris Kennedy, Screenwize
"As indignity and amateurishness battle for depressing precedence, Dance Flick becomes the comedy equivalent of torture porn, albeit with worse SFX and notably fewer laughs."
‑ Matt Glasby, Film4
"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."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The jokes here aren't just low-hanging fruit, they are fruit lazily taken out of the moldy pile."
‑ Monica Hesse, Washington Post
"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."
‑ Simon Foster,
"This intermittently funny spoof on dance movies has more Wayans in it than actual laughs."
‑ Pete Hammond,
"To say they fail is to insult the word fail. Scene for scene, there were probably more chuckles in The Reader."
‑ , Daily Telegraph
"Yes, it's rated PG-13, except it's also inappropriate for anyone over 13."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
"Dance Flick occasionally hits its mark with nimble execution. But too often it stumbles clumsily into bad taste."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"I'm trying to think of something nice to say about this movie but I'm drawing a blank."
‑ Andreas Heinemann,
"The main problem is its sheer laziness. Where the likes of Airplane! ...had a soft spot for the genre they were satirising and used that to cleverly subvert expectations and provide surprises, everything about Dance Flick is tame."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"This comedy is so bad it will make you want to tear out your eyeballs and use them as ear plugs."
‑ Cosmo Landesman, Times [UK]
