Critic Reviews for Darktown Strutters (Get Down and Boogie)

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The movie bites off about two more genres than it can chew, and never quite works as anything.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Darktown is for anyone who saw Blazing Saddles and thought, "Are there any other movies that do this?" With Frankie Crocker, The Dramatics and Dick Miller!

Couldn't get a laugh out of me.

June 22, 2010 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A noisy, flashy, wicked kaleidoscope that mercilessly parodies the blaxploitation genre and Hollywood's miserable stereotypes of African-Americans.

August 24, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5

Nearly everything it needs for status as a cult classic except a star turn in the lead role

Audience Reviews for Darktown Strutters (Get Down and Boogie)

While watching this I kept asking myself, "is this really a movie?". Unfortunately it is a movie. Who knows what the plot or storyline is, I had no idea, and there didn't seem to even be one. This movie is incredibly stupid.
