Honey, this film cannot step up for the last dance so let's not stomp the yard to see it.
4 September 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

A spoof movie brought to you by the Wayans brothers (who, at the last count managed to supply approximately half of the entire Earth's population) is a movie to be wary of. They might be a little better than Jason Friedberg/Aaron Seltzer at times but usually not by much.

I am not going to bother recounting the plot here (it's basically Save The Last Dance with a bunch of references to similar movies thrown in) so will just get through some brief thoughts on the film.

Shoshana Bush was a cute, likable leading actress and Damon Wayans Jr. was actually pretty funny too. In fact, I can admit that most of the actors did okay with the material they were given.

Just look at the list of movies referenced here and consider one thing

  • how dated all of this already feels. It's like watching your uncle
breakdance at your eighteenth birthday party, just sad sad sad.

Despite how dated or obvious many of the gags were I did actually laugh on a few occasions. Yes, most of the comedy was juvenile or just dumb but dumb can still be funny at times and some of the dance-off moments, in particular, were worth a giggle.

Finally, if nothing else, it was worth seeing for one amusing poke at Twilight.

Fans of the Wayans brothers movies will probably already have rushed out to lap this up and a lot of other people will have steered well clear. Which is kind of how it should be. However, if you find yourself stuck with the prospect of watching it then it's, as Douglas Adams once called our entire planet, mostly harmless.

See this if you like: Save The Last Dance, Scary Movie, Superhero Movie.
