Overview

Beyond the electrifying dance sequences, there isn't much going for this bland urban melodrama, but thankfully the DVD is a step up from the movie itself, though just barely. Columbia/TriStar has done a fine job with the transfer. Framed at the aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and anamorphic, the image is at times a little soft, and occasionally there is some grain evident, but the imperfections are forgivable. Details suffers during those periods, but for the most part, the picture looks good. Colors generally come across nicely and skin tones are perfectly matched. The sound, a 5.1 Dolby Digital track, is surprising not as effective as would be expected. The dance scenes do have a healthy dose of bass, but simply aren't that effective, while the remainder of the film is very low-key, rarely taking advantage of the sound field. Granted, the dialogue and music is clear, but the sound is still somewhat of a letdown overall. As for supplements, there are a few, some good and some hardly worth mentioning. The latter group includes two mediocre commentary tracks, one with stars Omari Grandberry and Marques Houston and director/writer Christopher B. Stokes and the second, a partial video commentary (at times you can watch the commentators as they discuss the movie while they watch it) including Stokes, producer Billy Pollina, choreographer David Scott, actress Meagan Good, and a number of the dancers. Neither commentary is particularly good, especially the video commentary, as they seem to be there to eat pizza and "whoop it up" for the dance moves more than anything. Both rarely get to the point or give any information worth listening to. More interesting is a 25-minute documentary, "Serve It Up: The Making of You Got Served," with cast and crew interviews, and the music video "Badaboom" from the now-defunct B2K (some of the stars in the film were from this R&B boy band). Also of interest is the option to watch the opening-scene dance battle from five different camera angles. Also thrown in is a four-minute montage of the dances throughout the film, shown in no particular order or reason. Rounding things out are trailers for Hellboy, Breakin' All the Rules, and 13 Going on 30.
