Bring It On (2000) Poster



During the filming of the scene when Torrance, Missy, Jan and Les carpool to a football game, a driver, angry that the film's motorcade was making him late for dinner, attempted to drive the camera truck off the road. It appears the character of Les is just an overly cautious driver who keeps checking his side mirrors. Huntley Ritter is really watching Mr. Road Rage get pulled over by the Highway Patrol.

All of the actors who were playing cheerleaders had to go to what they ended up calling "Cheerleader Boot Camp".
The three Clover Cheerleaders: Lava (Shamari Fears), Jenelope (Natina Reed), and LaFred (Brandi Williams) form the singing trio Blaque. They sing the song "As If" on the movie's soundtrack.
In the final performance, the routine used by the Toros actually do incorporate every dance style Torrance names while coming up with a new show.
As seen in the movie trailer, additional scenes showing Isis' personal and school life were shot, even giving her a boyfriend, but were eventually cut from the film.
Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union were both cheerleaders in school.
Many of the stunts performed by the teams in the national competition, including all stunts more than two bodies high, the fly-overs, and the basket-tosses with head-over-heels rotation, are illegal at the high school level according to the National Federation Interscholastic Spirit Association.
The very last scene to be filmed was the toothbrush flirting scene with Jesse Bradford and Kirsten Dunst.
The vintage rock t-shirts that Cliff wears throughout the film are from director Peyton Reed's extensive collection.
The Clovers line 'Can we beat these Buffys down so I can go home' is ironic. Clare Kramer and Eliza Dushku have played villains on the TV series Buffy The Vampire slayer (1997).
The cheer that Missy hears from out of the hotel window is a cheer from Kirsten Dunst's high school alma mater.
The Toros' cheerleaders wear uniforms that show the midriff, which is strictly forbidden on high school competitive teams.
Carla Mackauf, who plays Aaron's college girlfriend ("You were a cheerleader?") is a real-life Lakers girl.
The high school's name, Rancho Carne, can be translated as Meat Ranch.
The Advanced Chemistry textbook that Cliff is studying is not a real book at all. The PHD writer is actually the Assistant Propmaster's name. Though not real, the book is credited at the end of the film as an actual book that was cleared for use.
Huntley Ritter performed the Nationals scene with a sprained ankle.
The high school pictured in the movie is actually San Diego State University. A statue of the founder of the university can be seen in the shot at Missy's car before Torrance and Missy go to see the Clovers.
The Toros gym scenes were filmed at San Diego all girls Catholic school Academy of Our Lady of Peace (OLP). OLP cheerleaders cheer for OLP as the Pilots and for their brother school, all boys Catholic school St. Augustine (STA). Real OLP/STA cheerleaders can be seen in the movie at the regionals and nationals in their Saints cheer uniforms. They are shown at regionals after the Broncos praying and at nationals, sitting next to the Clovers as they announce the winners.
The fight song played by the Rancho Carne band at the football game scene is actually the "Cav Song", the traditional fight song used by the University of Virginia.
Of the film's 2 top billed actresses Kirsten Dunst found fame involving vampires ('Interview with a Vampire') whilst Eliza Dushku found fame as a vampire Slayer ('Buffy the Vampire Slayer').
The Nationals were filmed in Oceanside, California.
Eliza Dushku and Clare Kramer (Missy and Courtney) were both on the T.V. series Buffy the Vampire Slayer at one point. Eliza was Faith, a second vampire slayer gone bad girl in season three. Clare was the goddess Glory who takes Buffy's sister to open a portal to hell. Nicole Bilderback (Whitney) also cameoed in a couple of episodes in season three as a Cordette.
Terri Conn had three callbacks for the role of Torrance before Kirsten Dunst was cast in the part.
The character of Whitney was originally scripted as a peroxide blonde.
When the Toros walk in to the regional championships you can see a cheerleader dressed as a Falcon from the 1984 cheerleading movie "Gimme an F" over Missy's right shoulder.

During the first football game scene, the male cheerleaders behind Missy (Eliza Dushku) are not making the Torro "bull" hand signal like the rest of the cheer team. Instead, they are making "the shocker" hand signal.
