Goofs

When Q is looking through the New York post newspaper he is reading about Raheem's murder and you can see the date of paper which was Tuesday is April 16th 1991. Then you can see some of the article about the murder and in the paper it says it happen on April 8th which would of been a Monday however Q and his crew robbed the store on a Saturday so the date should of been April 6th.

Great Stuff...
12 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Juice is one of the Best Black Crime (Hood) movie of its time. Starring the late Famous Rapper Tupac in a surprisingly great performance. Out of all the rappers, i would say 2pac is the Best Actor out of the lot. Ice Cube is another good actor, DMX, 50 Cent and Snoop are OK. Omar Epps gives a good performance, who delivers some great speeches at the police station questioning. Juice tells the story of the lives of 4 teens in Harlem. After a robbery goes wrong, they end up in a murder investigation. There are some great Hip Hop tunes in this movie. Special appearance from Samuel L Jackson and Queen Latifah. This is worth the watch, if you enjoy your action movies.
