Dance Flick Review


Unbearable
The recent spate of dance-based movies is ripe for parody, but this pastiche never manages to find an actual joke. We're left with a painfully convoluted non-plot trying to link together a series of lead-ins to never-realised punchlines.

Megan (Bush) is a perky teen who always wanted to be a ballerina but wound up in the inner-city Musical High School instead of Julliard. She's befriended by the sassy Charity (Atkins), whose brother Thomas (Wayans Jr) catches her eye and offers to teach her some new dance steps. But Thomas and his pal (Crockett) are in debt to a local gangster (Grier). To pay up they need to take on a rival team in The Streets dance-off, which happens to be on the same night as the school's Senior Showcase.

Dance Flick Review


Good
For crass inconsistency, you can't beat the Wayans family. Sure, they gave us TV's In Living Color, and back when big brother Keenan Ivory was behind the lens, there was I'm Gonna Get You Sucka and Scary Movies 1 and 2. Of course, since then, they up-chucked the horrific White Chicks, and the equally repugnant Little Man on unsuspecting audiences. Now they are back doing what (they think) they do best -- making fun of current cultural trends. In this case however, their parody of the Dance Flick film is, believe it or not, right on the money.

When her mother dies unexpectedly, Meghan White (Shoshana Bush) leaves the suburbs and heads for the big city. There she attends Musical High School and quickly befriends brash unwed mother Charity (Essence Atkins), the chubby Tracey Transfat (Chelsea Makela), and the standard good boy mixed up with a bad crowd, Thomas Uncless (Damon Wayans Jr.). At first, she could care less for her hip-hop loving classmates. But soon, she is turned around by the beat of the music and the attentions of Tom.

Malibu's Most Wanted Review


Grim

There are exactly two funny performances in "Malibu's Most Wanted" -- a one-joke comedy about an over-privileged white-boy wannabe rapper -- and neither of them are by top-liner and co-writer Jamie Kennedy.

Expanding on a two-bit sketch character from his self-titled WB network variety show, Kennedy plays B-Rad G (nee Brad Gluckman), a pathetic poser "from the 'Bu," where "everybody's strapped with a nine" (nine-iron, that is) and "most of the time the police won't even come through" (because the town is pretty much crime-free).

Being from a straight-laced political family, Brad has become such an embarrassment to his father's gubernatorial campaign that daddy (Ryan O'Neal) hires two Juilliard theater graduates to play gangstaz, kidnap the brat and drop him in Compton to scare the imaginary "ghetto" out of him.
