Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (2)
Loc Dog warns Ashtray about how promiscuous Dashiki is, and does so by saying, "She got more kids than Ms. Wayans." That is a joke in which Marlon Wayans (Loc Dog) is actually referring to his real-life mother who has ten children, which include him, Kim Wayans (Mrs. Johnson) and Shawn Wayans (Ashtray) as well as Keenen Ivory Wayans the mailman.
Shawn Wayans's character early in the film states that his father is only a few years older than him. This is making fun of the fact that Cuba Gooding Jr. is only 7 years younger than Laurence Fishburne who played father and son in Boyz n the Hood (1991). Lahmard J. Tate, who plays Ashtray's father, is only less than two years older than Wayans.
A trailer for the film included the tagline, "It's the only movie released this year with fourteen words in its title"
Leonette Scott (Flashback Girl), spoofs her own character (Tisha) in Boyz n the Hood (1991).
When Ashtry visits Dishikia and he starts punching the air, he accidentally knocks out the children. However when the camera pans backward, you see the supposedly unconscious children moving.

Ashtray's father is played by Lahmard J. Tate, the older brother of Larenz Tate who played O-Dog in Menace II Society (1993), one of the films being parodied.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Actor Samuel Monroe Jr. played the same part in both 'Don't be a Menace to South Central While Drinkin Juice in the Hood' and Menace II Society (1993) (he was the one trying to defend his cousin's honor because she was pregnant) but ended up getting his face stomped into the pavement in both movies in just about the same exact way.
Omar Epps is seen briefly as "Malik" going off to college. This is the same character he played & even same outfit as seen in "Higher Learning" from the previous year. Even the shooter was poking fun at Michael Rapaport's character "Remy" from the same film.
