Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Commits a variety of cinematic sins, none fatal individually but collectively enough to pull an audience under."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"A thinly written, hoarily cliched story that serves mostly as connective tissue between the movie's chief draw, its dazzling dance sequences."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"We actually begin to laugh at the inanity of it all, wanting to yell at the screen: 'Just shut up and dance!'"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"A spirited, guilty pleasure of a dance movie."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"...monotonous and predictable."
‑ Tony Toscano, Talking Pictures (U.S.)
"The movie dances when it should be developing, say, characters or story line."
‑ Matt Weitz, Dallas Morning News
"Dubious plot and characters, good dancing."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Before shooting began, the dancers rehearsed for eight weeks to develop off-the-hook new dance moves, which begs the question: Who was working on the script during that time?"
‑ Peter Debruge, Premiere Magazine
"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."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Lacks the old-school charm of films like Wild Style and Breakin'."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"The story is so bored with itself, it collapses -- but the diverse troupe of dance talents at least makes it an eclectic slide."
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"Nothing but an exploitative piece of garbage..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"You Got Served is, to quote Simon Cowell, absolutely dreadful."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Just in time for their feature film debut, the enormously popular B2K has disbanded."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, Nitrate Online
"The breathtaking choreography of Dave Scott and Shane Sparks employs every imaginable dance hook with jaw-dropping originality."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
