Ah, the dance off. The storied tradition of lazy comedies released during the aughts. It’s what you do when you realize that writing something witty, memorable, or compelling for your characters to say is really hard. A dance-off is like a joke you can make with your feet and it means you don’t have to break out the dictionary. It’s a win-win for both the filmmaker and the mouth-breather willing to laugh at┬áthe weakest attempts to entertain.

Take Me Home Tonight

Wouldn’t it be funny of an obnoxious, overweight guy were to challenge another guy to a dance-off, but it turns out that other guy is really good at dance-offs? Answer: nope.

American Pie 3

When the enthralling narrative of the second American Pie sequel sensibly drew our players to a gay bar, it was a forgone conclusion that someone was going to get f***ed in their pie Stifler was going to dance with a dude. Is this the type of awkward, silly white guy dancing that goes on in gay bars? It’s a wonder those dudes get any at all.

White Chicks

Writing movies is hard. Did you know that you’re expected to fill at least 88 minutes of screentime? And twenty-five minute end credits are frowned upon. That’s (probably) why the Wayan’s Brothers chose to fill up this four-minute gap in White Chicks with a random dance-off. Making characters say words can be hard.
