Quotes

Funky Bunch: But we never got a chance to practice the forbidden dirty boogaloo.
Cocolonia: Funky Bunch! My photographic memory. Let me read the Freak Dance scroll. I'll know all the moves, if you'll follow my lead. It will also look less rapey that way.

Spot on Comedy
16 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really impressed by "Freak Dance." It's a clever, high-octane parody of movies like "Flash Dance" and "Fame." I could see this movie being made into a great musical, because Besser captures the vibe of this genre so well.

Matt Besser is an amazing writer, and his sketch-comedy background makes this movie strong. As I watched the "Weed Ghetto" scene, I felt like I was watching an Upright Citizens Brigade sketch from their Comedy Central Days. If you are a fan of Upright Citizens Brigade, or just a fan of good comedy in general, I would definitely recommend this movie.

Also: expect great supporting performances from Amy Poehler, Matt Walsh, Ian Roberts, Tim Meadows, Andy Daly, and Horatio Sanz
