Dance Flick DVD Description
The worlds of dancing and spoof step up and throw down in DANCE FLICK, the latest melange of movie parody from the Wayans clan. As the film opens, we meet Thomas Uncles (Damon Wayans Jr.), a hip-hop hopeful whose dance-competition loss puts him in debt to gargantuan gang leader Sugar Bear (David Alan Grier). But his luck begins to change when he meets the new girl at his performing-arts high school, Megan White (Shoshana Bush), an aspiring ballerina whose Juilliard dreams are shattered when her mother dies a heroically protracted death on her way to Megan's audition. Though they start as prickly competitors, it isn't long before Thomas and Megan's mutual love of dance enables them to overcome the social and racial barriers between them. But will their unlikely love story be enough to inspire all of the school's students, rekindle Megan's dreams, and save Thomas as he returns to the hip-hop battlefield of his earlier defeat? In true family style, star Wayans Jr. and director Damien Wayans were assisted by the talents of fellow Wayans Keenen Ivory, Shawn, Marlon, Craig, and Kim to bring the film to life. Poking fun at everything from FAME to HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL to TWILIGHT, DANCE FLICK is a raucous send-up that keeps its scatological beat grooving from start to finish.
