Dancin': It's On!

Please choose a format above.

For decades, moviegoers have loved to watch people dance. But there was always an unanswered question lurking: was It, in fact, On? But finally, a movie slithered out of “This film was not screened for critics” slop heap and delivered an unambiguous, if confusingly punctuated proclamation: Dancin’: It’s On! 

Let’s not bury the lede here: This is a Teen Dance Movie from the guy who directed Space Mutiny. Turns out choreography was his true passion, in the same way that “freezer-space optimization” was Jeffrey Dahmer’s. But now that whole hula hoop dance sequence in Space Mutiny makes a lot more sense, right? It does not make it better, sexier, or less mortifying, but it at least makes more sense!

Now, we could just hit you with a lot of “Grind Twerkhard!” jokes here, but we should probably tell you what the movie is about. Seen a Teen Dance Movie before? Well it’s like that! But it’s the Teen Dance Movie from the dumbest timeline in the teenverse. The cast mainly consists of a bunch of people from "So You Think You Can Dance?" who resoundingly answered that question with a shrug and half-hearted “Kinda?” There’s also one of the martial arts guys who didn’t do any martial arts in Santa’s Summer House. And just in case you were concerned there wasn’t a prominent mime, let us assure you: there is a prominent mime!

Pack your bags for Panama City, queue up one of the absolute weirdest songs in the history of RiffTrax soundtracks, and join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for Dancin’: It’s On!
