Chill out
"Dance Flick" is the latest in a long line of "Airplane"-spawned movie parodies, this one a product of the formidable spoof-industry mavens, the Wayans Brothers. Like most such films, "Dance Flick" is a goofy, genial and instantly forgettable comedy that takes on such recent hits as "Step Up 2 the Streets" and "Hairspray" as well as more dated works such as "Flashdance" and even "Singin' in the Rain." As with all these scattershot send-ups, the movie defies the rules of logic and physics as it pokes fun at the accoutrements and style of hip hop music and culture.

Damon Wayans, Jr. plays the not-so-streetwise hood who falls for Shoshana Bush, a lame-assed white chick from the suburbs who wants to make it to Julliard but has to overcome the trauma of losing her mother in a car crash on the day of her audition. The amusing Essence Atkins costars as Shoshana's sassy best friend, Charity, with Shawn Wayans appearing as Charity's baby daddy.

It would be easy to feel superior to a film like "Dance Flick" - as most viewers clearly do - but a good part of it is actually pretty funny.
