[first lines]
Mr. Rad:Time. Yeah. Now that's what I'm talking about. Yeah! I like it like this. These two crews right here is what I call bad. I'm talking bad as in utter bad. But it's up to you to decide which crew walks away with this here $600 in the hat.
[crowd cheers]
Mr. Rad:Okay, let's settle down. Let's settle down, now. Now, by round of applause, you decide who the baddest crew is tonight. Let's hear it for Vick's crew.
[cheers, applause]
Mr. Rad:All right, let's hear it for David and Elgin's crew.
[louder cheers]
Mr. Rad:Well, well, well. Seems to me like the money in the hat goes to David and Elgin.

The dancing is great but everything else falls apart, 15 November 2004
Author: christian123

The competitive world of street dancing is explored through the eyes of two best friends, played by Marques Houston and Omarion. As the leaders of a hot local dance crew, they are challenged to a competition that causes a rift in their friendship, but if they're going to win at "The Big Bounce" they will have to put their dispute aside and work together.

You Got Served has some great dance spots but not much in terms of plot or originality. The makers of You Got Served only had one thing on their mind and that was to wow its audience with its dancing. They succeeded at making the dancing really good but failed to make a good movie. If you watch it just to check out the dancing and ignore everything else then you will enjoy it. But if you notice how bad the acting is or how stupid the story is then you will hate it. The dancing sequences are done extremely well and the movie gets a ten on that part but for everything else it gets a three.

The acting was decent enough for this type of movie but it could have been a lot better. The plot was stupid and it was tied together with the dance sequences. I think so many people hated this movie because of the story not making a lot of sense. While I didn't really like the film, I'll admit that the rating of 1.8 is too low for the movie. It was a bad movie but it wasn't that bad. Chris Strokes does a good job at directing the dance sequences but he can't tell a story at all. He would randomly move from scene to scene and none of them would really make sense. I heard they're going to make a sequel so hopefully they will work a little harder on the script. Though if they did make one, I probably wouldn't watch it. In the end, unless you're into dancing, this film is worth skipping. Rating 4/10
