    Cliched, amateurish and feeble.

    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.

    Just as clichéd as its predecessor, and lacks the old-school charm of films like "Wild Style" and "Breakin’."
  4. This amateurish drama about street-dance contests and busted friendship is about as real as Lil' Kim's chest.
  5. The astonishing brio and verve of street dancing deserves better than this.
  6. When a movie keeps repeating its title, you know it's a stinker.

    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.

    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 »
