Trivia

The gasoline tanker truck has the logo of Chevron Corporation, one of the world's largest oil companies, but bears the name, in Chevron's font style, of "Cheney" rather than "Chevron" - a reference to Dick Cheney, 46th Vice-POTUS under President George W. Bush. From 1995-2000, before becoming Vice-President, Cheney was Chairman and CEO of Halliburton, the world's second-largest oilfield services corporation. See more »

The Wayans don't deliver
1 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Dance Flick is a movie that really isn't funny or even remotely that great. It had some funny moments but not enough to actually be called funny. The acting was bad all in the film, mostly by the lead character Megan, and Thomas. His facial expressions were weird and he was over the top too much. But its a Wayans film, acting isn't always that great in their films. The plot is spoofed from Step Up 2: The Streets. About a girl Megan who wants to live her dream to become a dancer so she moves to another school. This happens when her mother passes away. Many spoofs in this film were unnecessary and just plain unfunny like the spoof of Ray Charles from "Ray", "Fame", and others. Spoofing Ray Charles was a surprise because "Ray" isn't a dance movie, and this movie is called Dance Flick. They also spoofed "Twilight" at the very ending. I didn't laugh at anything except a few chuckles. And like others have said, many of the funny scenes were in the trailers. One funny scene was towards the end with the final "you got served" dance scene with the fat guy dancing. Also credit to Shawn Wayans character and Affion Crockett (A-con), he was pretty funny. Though overall this movie was just not funny (except a few moments)
