Sarcasm is no longer the lowest form of wit – that dubious honour is now reserved for the Wayans brothers and their idiotic brand of big-screen lampoonery, which began with the Scary Movie series and reaches a creative nadir with Dance Flick.


Damien Dante Wayans steps behind the camera, working with a leaden screenplay co-written with uncles Keenen Ivory, Shawn, Marlon and Craig, who all appear in forgettable supporting roles with their sister Kim.

This latest foul-mouthed spoof takes pot-shots at Make It Happen, Save The Last Dance, Step Up, Stomp The Yard and other sharply-choreographed fantasies – and misses every single target.

Humour doesn’t have to be sophisticated to be funny but it does require a modicum of relevance and intelligence.
