I watched You Got Served knowing it was going to be bad but I was wrong. I figured it was just a movie that was a definite moneymaker because basically every girl in the world loved B2K when it came out and they were going to go see it just for that. The story was weak and the acting was below weak and I was disappointed because it seemed Marques Houston watered down his acting skills so he wouldn't outshine B2K. Even though the movie itself isn't good based on acting skills and story it's still very entertaining.
You can hate boy groups and B2K or IMX or whatever but the truth is they dance the movie right into worth watching. The things they did in this film are crazy and it takes a lot of talent to do what they did. I can't lie and say this movie was trash and horrible because it's a pretty good movie when they're not talking. It's a change of pace and it will certainly have you watching it over again to get every move.

You Got Servedhas one simple priority, and if you're into the latest hip-hop dance moves, you'll get served an enjoyable 93-minute diversion. For anyone else, however, all bets are off, since this wretchedly plotted film was written by director Christopher B. Stokes as a crassly commercial vehicle for B2K, the teen group that Stokes managed while making cheap-ass movies like this one. There's a tissue-thin romantic subplot, but mostly it's about the MTV-styled showdown between B2K (as Orange County white boys) and their black L.A. competitors, including members of the hip-hop group IMx. Their aggressive moves are undeniably impressive (in other words, don't try this at home unless you know a good chiropractor), but Stokes would've been better off making a straight documentary, thus avoiding all the nonsense thatYou Got Serveddelivers between its abundance of choppily edited dance scenes.--Jeff Shannon
