Houston! Don’t be a chucklehead, see THE FP this week at the Alamo Drafthouse

  Imagine, for a moment, that Dance Dance Revolution was released in the ‘80s as an NES game — the kind with 8-bit, brightly colored pixilated punks engaging on side quest-filled adventures that are only just slightly marred by cheesy dialogue and even cheesier storylines. Now imagine that this game was adapted into a major motion picture and was played completely straight — similar to the way that the brightly colored world of Super Mario Brothers was drenched in grit and released as 1993’s SUPER MARIO BROS: THE MOVIE. Well, there’s no need to imagine — the movie exists and it’s an absolute blast.
