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
