The original title of the film was "Lucky Boy", after Mark Dacascos' character. The producers changed the title after shooting without the director's approval, because they thought it would sell better. See more »
Mark Dacascos gives his strongest acting performance ever.
BOOGIE BOY is an engrossing character study that is gritty, realistic yet stylish, very well acted, written and directed. It's possible that some people will buy or rent this movie looking for non-stop action, and perhaps they will be disappointed. However, for those who simply are looking to watch a quality film with a good story and interesting characters, this film is a must see. Mark Dacascos gives his strongest acting performance ever.
