Trivia

Daryl Mitchell, Donald Faison, Anthony 'Treach' Criss, and Money-B are among the people who auditioned for the role of Bishop. Tupac Shakur had accompanied Money-B to the audition and asked to read. Shakur nailed the role when he threw a chair during his audition. Shakur helped Criss get a cameo as a member of Radames' gang. See more »

Classic film about friends
22 October 2001 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Juice is a classic film about four friends and the chocies they make and the consquences. The cast all give memorable performances in particular Tupac Shakur as Bishop. The film also features a young Omar Epps. The soundtrack is also one of the best soundtracks ever made for a hip hop film. I love this movie.
