A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

The "N" word appears a few times.

Violence

It's all about the dance moves.

Sex

Lots of innuendo, nothing really explicit.

Language

Occasional "S" and "N" words appear.

Consumerism

There's the movie tie-in, of course, and a chance to win a trip to meet the band.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

One or two passing references to drinking.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that B2K can't seem to decide whether to be a schmaltzy boy band or a scary street gang, but this makes for an interesting soundtrack CD. Mild by current standards, there's a bit of sexual innuendo and a disturbing word or two.

YOU GOT SERVED- B2k

What's the story?

It's been hard to avoid the advance buzz about this ever-so-slightly edgy boy band's film debut in "You Got Served." B2K gives some fine performances in the YOU GOT SERVED SOUNDTRACK, which is carefully and lovingly produced. There's predictable self-congratulatory macho posturing. Yet in the context of lively, infectious dance tracks, lyrics like "Get a drink and your Movah, after that we gonna get to the (Range) Rovuh" or "Turn around, make it bounce, shake it like you come from out of town...Mami I'm just tryin' to get you in my room, and see that big badabing go badaboom" can seem sporty and even cute.

Is it any good?

The CD's ballads are well-performed but formulaic, offering no surprises. With a little help from friends like Lil' Kim, Fabulous, Rufus Black, XSO Drive featuring Red Cafe, and M.O.P. featuring Funkmaster Flex, the boys in B2K deliver a pleasant and occasionally wonderful soundtrack album.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how the music and movie go hand-in-hand. How do you think the movie benefits from the kind of music chosen for the soundtrack? Does it take away from the movie at all? Also, does a good soundtrack make you want to see the movie or make a movie better?
