WITH a GRAND TOTAL of 12 RAZZIE® NOMINATIONS (and 3 "WINS") to DATE for THEIR PREVIOUS "COMEDIES" WHITE CHICKS and LITTLE MAN, YOU MIGHT THINK WE'D BE DELIGHTED to REPORT THAT THE WAYANS BROTHERS (MARLON, SHAWN and KEENAN IVORY) DON'T STAR in the FAMILY's LATEST ATTEMPT at an ACTUALLY FUNNY COMEDY...

BUT, ALTHOUGH THEY AREN'T the TOP-LINED STARS of DANCE FLICK, THEY DO APPEAR in MINOR ROLES. NOW HERE's a TRULY SCARY IDEA: INSTEAD of TASKING TOP BILLING, THEY ARE PASSING the TORCH (AS IT WERE) to the NEXT GENERATION of WAYANS OFFSPRING to BECOME "STARS." AND, JUDGING by ITS TRAILER, DANCE FLICK SHOULD BE UP (i.e. DOWN) to the FAMILY's USUAL STANDARD of "HILARITY."

HERE's a LINK to the OFFICIAL SITE for DANCE FLICK -- WE INVITE YOU to WATCH the TRAILER, and SEE IF YOU DON'T AGREE: DANCE FLICK LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING WE'D EXPECT from the ONLY CLODS of COMEDY EVEN LESS CONSISTENTLY FUNNY THAN the WAYANSES -- THOSE TWO UN-TALENTED TWITS RESPONSIBLE for DATE MOVIE, EPIC MOVIE, DISASTER MOVIE, ETC -- THAT PUERILE PAIR KNOWN to OUR VOTERS as "SELTZERBERG."

WHEN a FAMILY of MARGINALLY TALENTED FILM-MAKERS TURN for "INSPIRATION" to a PAIR of MONUMENTALLY UN-TALENTED COLLEAGUES, HOLLYWOOD's WHOLE "CHASING ITS OWN TAIL JUST to MAKE a FAST BUCK" MENTALITY HAS FINALLY HIT an ALL-TIME LOW.

BUT IT's a NEW LOW WE HAVE EVERY CONFIDENCE HOLLYWOOD WILL SOMEHOW SINK BELOW BEFORE YEAR's END...

KID: "I'm scared, Mommy..."

MOM: "What do you mean, my child could grow up to star in one of your P.O.S. movies -- How dare you threaten an infant!!"

This definitely has the feel of a possible Razzie "winner."

When I first saw the trailer, I thought it looked like an improvement over the more recent "Movie" movies (and it probably still will be) but the more I see the promos, the worse it looks...

Well, with the slew of dance movies that came out over this past decade, the genre is ripe for a spoofing. The trailer looks ... okay at best. My thoughts: most likely better than anything Seltzerberg has made in the past five years, but it will end up on the voting ballots, no doubt.

Damien Dante Wayans is the Son of Keenen Ivory Wayans I guess when to Directing a Movie has not learned much his Father who has directed some pretty funny movies.

I agree that there was a time when spoofing a dance movie might've made sense, but as someone else mentioned in the other thread, I think they're about 2 years too late to do so. They may have put it on hold because of the other terrible spoofs, but still... Clock's tickin, kiddies. Gotta get these things out when they still make sense.

It makes perfect sense with "Step Up 3" scheduled for release next year... not to mention the Fame Remake... The time is ripe for dance spoofing...

 What the hell?! Did the studio heads just give the green light to remake EVERY movie from the 1980s?!

The prophecy will soon be fulfilled... The circle has almost been completed. The chosen one has arisen. And his name... Is Bay.

...If Michael Bay and Uwe Boll teamed up, and created a movie called "The Tower" .... Would that make it the Tower of Bay-Boll?
