Stefano Fabrizio Darold interviews co-directors Matt Besser and Neil Mahoney for Freak Dance, a dance musical parody in the vein of Electric Boogaloo, Step Up, Dirty Dancing, You Got Served and every other dance movie ever made. The sexy and wealthy Cocolonia runs away to must escape her repressive mother (Amy Pohler) and learn to street dance with the help of Funky Bunch (Michael Daniel Cassady), who dreams of being the best dancer ever. They must save the Fantaseez community center from the Building Department and the evil gang banger dancers led by Dazzle (Drew Droege) before it’s too late. Fortunately, real dancers were used in the making of this movie, and paired with an excellent soundtrack make this an absurdly entertaining movie. It’s to be expected from a comedian the caliber of Besser, a founding member of the Upright Comedy Brigade which ran on Comedy Central and Asssscat: Improv on Bravo TV.
