Though they have no scenes together, Eriq La Salle's character, Slick Will, and Vanessa Bell Callaway's character, Anita, are married in "Biker Boyz".

In the end of course Eddie and Shari's characters married, jilting Eriq and Vanessa who end up married to each other in Biker Boyz. See more »

This movie was a complete flop. Had Bythewood been smart enough to use the original unedited script as opposed to the one he and Craig hacked together he would have had a great movie under his directing debut.
