Dancin’: It’s On! – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 94
“This is basically Skim Milk: The Motion Picture.”
Hit Parade Hotel bellboys Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell turn the dancin’ off long enough to review Dancin’: It’s On!. This hilariously inept Panama City Beach travelogue has good dancin’ but bad everythin’ else. The central love story pairs privileged white monster Jen and rage-dancin’ human toilet Ken, dancin’-obsessed youngsters trainin’ for the Big Dance Contest. It stars actors who can dance but not act, with a director who can dance but neither direct nor act.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss pop-lock concierges, dancin’ barbers and deadbeat MMA dads.

This week’s darer: Gunnar Pearson
Gunnar’s dare: “This is the type of bad movie that you will remember until the day you die. This movie does one and only one thing right, which is that the actual dancing in this movie is pretty good. Literally every other aspect of this movie is wrong. The directing, writing, acting, and characters are wrong. The shots, cuts, and transitions are wrong. This movie doesn’t show or tell it has the soundtrack come on and just literally describe what is happening in a scene. The movie is shot like the world’s most poorly made tourism promo, yet it somehow managed to get into 600 theaters! In other words, I loved this movie and would love to hear you guys talk about it on the podcast.”
IMDB synopsis: “Two young dancers fall in love and eventually work together to win a dance competition.”
