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.

Shockingly Good
25 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A spoiled rich girl who wants to be a dancer (Megan Heyn) finds herself caught into between two rival dance groups set to do battle at an underground competition.

I walked into this with the lowest of expectations. Upright Citizens Brigade was never top-tier, making more bad skits than good (they are the poor man's Kids in the Hall). And a film mocking dancing films? Sounded cheap and a bit late on the scene. Even the names Amy Poehler, Tim Meadows and more were not thrilling, as I assumed (correctly) they had only brief roles.

I was wrong on some of this. This movie was hilarious beginning to end, with incredible songs and entertaining dancing. The plot is stupid and pointless, but that is quite the point -- ignore the plot and just enjoy the scenes one at a time.
