Consensus: Dance Flick scores a few laughs thanks to the Wayans brothers' exuberance, but it's ultimately a scattershot collection of gags without much direction.

Time Out

The genre is ripe for mocking. But this steers clear of smart observational comedy and goes for gross-out every time.

If there exists anyone in the comedy business less funny than the Wayans clan, it's Amy Sedaris, so she's here, too.

Yes, it's rated PG-13, except it's also inappropriate for anyone over 13.

Dumb and unfunny. A waste of time, Dance Flick doesn't bring the laughs of Scary Movie first movies.

I think I liked this more than most just because I like the spoof comedies. Worth watching if you enjoy the satire of spoofs.
