We gave it a B

Starring: Damon Wayans Jr., Shoshana Bush, Shawn Wayans
Directed by: Damien Dante Wayans
Release date: May 22

Nearly a decade after the Wayans brothers crafted the megahit Scary Movie, the clan has reassembled for Dance Flick, a send-up of Save the Last Dance and its ilk. The key difference this time: The younger, twentysomething generation has taken over. Damon Jr. plays the lead, cousin Damien Dante directed, and oldest cousin Craig co-wrote. ”I’m so glad we’re making fun of these movies,” says Damon of the often melodramatic genre. ”When in life do people solve their hardest problems with dance moves? Yeah, like we’ll have a dance-off to fix the economy? That never happens.”
