Other than one jarringly misbegotten detour, the movie is exactly what you would expect.

You Got Hosed might be a more accurate title for those suckered into putting down ten dollars for this waste of celluloid.

Moviegoers will walk out of this mostly disappointing film conjugating, 'I got served. You got served. We got served.'

You Got Served is about dancing. Street dancing. The sort of make-believe dancing that inner-city youths participate in instead of having sex or joining a gang.

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

Served crackles with energy during its dance sequences. Eventually, the hoofing stops and so does the movie.

I could watch the dance scenes all day; unfortunately, they are broken up by simple-minded, street-flavored melodrama.

The film has the amateurish air of any number of no-budget quickies that have been cranked out to cash in on this or that latest-hot-thing.

It's too bad more energy wasn't devoted to fleshing out the one-dimensional characters and crafting a decent script.

For those of you who haven't managed to get the mawkish Honey out of your cinematic system then brace yourself because the musical monotony doesn't stop there

A movie with this much dancing should be crackling with electricity. Instead, this is simply no fun, a limp hip-hop flick without a single spark.

Nothing but an exploitative piece of garbage...

We actually begin to laugh at the inanity of it all, wanting to yell at the screen: 'Just shut up and dance!'

Every bit as cliched, amateurish and feeble as its predecessors.

A somewhat incongruous mix of high drama and street dancing in which the street dancing is fabulous, and the high drama is low grade at best.

The latest in a long and not-so-respectable line of dance sequences -- adjusted for the era -- with a very bare-bones plot supposedly linking them together.
