  1. When a movie keeps repeating its title, you know it's a stinker.

    It's too bad more energy wasn't devoted to fleshing out the one-dimensional characters and crafting a decent script. The only reason to catch this harmless diversion is for the group dance sessions.

    There ain't much to You Got Served, but at least this teensploitation flick is bookended by two frenzied sequences that fully exploit the visual potential of street dancing.
  4. The astonishing brio and verve of street dancing deserves better than this.

    Just as clichéd as its predecessor, and lacks the old-school charm of films like "Wild Style" and "Breakin’."
  6. This amateurish drama about street-dance contests and busted friendship is about as real as Lil' Kim's chest.
  7. 25
    Cliched, amateurish and feeble.

    Rarely do you encounter a movie without a shred of originality. You Got Served is such a cinematic vacuum.

    The movie is rather generic, the dance sequences were exhilarating but it doesn't make up for the movies' abundance of cliche. Out of the B2K crew, J-Boog was spot on in his role as Rico. While his character is just as underdeveloped as the rest, J-Boog's performance, at least, brings warmth in this otherwise very ordinary and way below-average popcorn flick. Full Review »

    I watch this movie only for the dancing, well and steve harvey haha. Other then the dancing the movie is excruciatingly bad. Every movie like this someone dies and at the end it has to go down to a tie and a showdown. Full Review »

    Garbage. It's as if, every single dance movie is CRAP. The only reason this gets a 3 is because some dance moves looked cool. Other than that, total crap. So when people go to these movies, and the producers seem to think that the actual public like it, this just makes them make even crappier movies. So, if you go to watch these movies, you're part of the problem. join forces with us (people that don't stand for this garbage), and say no to ass movies, don't let them to this to us. Full Review »
