  1. The heart of the movie, however, is the dancing, which is as spontaneous as it is spectacular, incorporating considerable gymnastics.
  2. Just pretend the acting scenes are commercial breaks, and you'll be fine.

    The beauty of You Got Served is that it delivers the moves from every vantage point.

    The performers all move a lot better than they talk, which is bad news for the insipid melodrama but good news whenever the characters hit the floor in furious competitions between rival crews.
  5. 40
    Offers viewers a trade-off: half an hour of phenomenal dancing in exchange for an hour of atrocious drama.

    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.

    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. Collapse

    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. Expand
