Trivia

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". Back in 1988, they both had roles in "Coming To America" which shows some irony. Eriq was Shari Headley's boyfriend, Darryl. Vanessa was chosen to be Eddie Murphy's bride, Imani Izzi. 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 »

Goofs

No tattoo artist in their right mind would have a client stand freely, especially in such an awkward position, as the girl getting her boyfriend's name is. The body is likely to move or jerk. Securing the body against the back of a seat or lying down. See more »

It's not bad, but not great - entertaining at best
31 January 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I saw Biker Boyz last night. While the plot was horrendous and hard to follow, I thought the acting wasn't bad. The editing and cinematography was done to try to give the audience the feel of being on a bike at 100+ miles per hour. I wouldn't say see this movie if you are looking for quality plot, but as your basic standard hollywood fare, it's no worse than some of the other crap that's out there. I really also enjoyed how the movie was NOT violent and they showed how Black people can have a great time w/o guns and violence (notice the only weapon in the movie is brandished by the Italian gang). I also really enjoyed Orlando Jones' performance. See if you can try to spot the many appearances by stars from the past - Sally Richardson, Kadeem Hardison and others!
