In a dystopian future, a relentless turf war rages. Two rival gangs feud for control of rural wasteland Frazier Park ('The FP') in the deadly arena of competitive dance-fight video game "Beat-Beat Revelation." After hometown hero BTRO is slain on the dance platform by thug leader L Dubba E, his protégé younger brother JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into isolation, vowing never to duel again. One year later, The FP is in ruins, and JTRO must find the courage to return and restore order in a ruthless battle for revenge that can only leave one man dancing. From the producers of Paranormal Activity and featuring narration by James Remar (The Warriors), THE FP is a fury of fierce footwork, triumphant montages and neon street wear that Moviefone calls "a rare ready-made cult hit."

I am literally going to buy this for people and write a note: "You're welcome -M" on it.
There's heavy slang, DDR to the death, epic montages of unepic things, excessive swearing, random nudity. Oh god this is fantastically redic. Can't recommend it enough.
In short this was a great movie and will long have an honored place in my collection.
Contains adult language, drug usage, inappropriate sexual situations, and a random boob shot.
Note: Not recommended to get for your kids who like DDR. This is an adult film ages 14+.
Much of THE FP seems like something that would come out of a Troma film. That's a compliment, not an insult. The production values are low budget but you can't really tell because the film looks that good. There is little to no money coming along to rescue this film so it all depends on the effort made by those involved. That effort is tremendous.
As I said, the film takes place in what appears to be the near future, a world where everyone seems to do little more than get drunk and celebrate their heroes, those who face off in dance dance revolution. If you don't know what ddr is it's the game where to contestants stand on a platform made of squares and must imitate the patterns appearing on the screen making dance moves in the process.
The main hero is Btro, a player who has yet to be beaten. His brother Jtro (Jason Trost) is also a competitor but not near the player Btro is. On a fateful night, Btro is facing L Dubba E, the winner taking control of the FP (short for Frazier Park where the film takes place). During the competition Btro has a heart attack and Jtro swears to never ddr again.
A year later and we find Jtro working a road crew. His friend KCDC comes to him and tells him they need his help. L Dubba E has taken control of the liquor store and now the drunks are limited to meth instead of getting drunk. KCDC pleads his case to Jtro telling him the drunks no longer feed the ducks in the local lake. "Do you know what it's like to have a lake with no ducks?" he screams?Read more ›
It takes a few minutes for this ludicrous concept to really sink in. A gang war centered on Dance Dance Revolution; that's basically what you're looking at here. Once you're able to accept that that is actually happening; the movie is a hell of a lot of fun. The movie is driven by its endless amount of references to 80s movies and its insane dialogue. Aside from Art Hsu, these are some of the whitest guys you've ever come across and yet they speak some of the most ghetto, street dialect you've ever heard.
Most of the stuff said in the film can't be repeated here. The F word is used over 250 times, but that only helps add to the humor of the movie. When KCDC first pulls JTRO back to The FP, he gives him the most ridiculous pep talk in the world: drunks have turned to meth in his absence because L Dubba E now controls all the alcohol in town. No drunks means no bums and no bums means that no one will feed the ducks down at the park. A town without ducks is nothing.Read more ›
