Trivia

All of the film's battles were very competitive in real life. The fight that breaks out during the first battle with Wade's crew was not in the script, but everyone was so mad at each other that they just started fighting. While filming the opening battle, the director would yell "cut", but Omarion Grandberry kept battling with Columbus Short. Omari does a back flip, while at the same time Columbus does a move that looks like he is pulling David up. This was not in the original choreography; it was a true battle. See more »

Goofs

In the Big Bounce, before the Dance Off begins between The Lil Saints and the crew in black, Lil' Kim says that the music will play for five minutes and when she says "stop" they must stop dancing. But she never actually says stop, the music just fades out and the dancers stop dancing. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Rad: Time. Yeah. Now that's what I'm talking about. Yeah! I like it like this. These two crews right here is what I call bad. I'm talking bad as in utter bad. But it's up to you to decide which crew walks away with this here $600 in the hat.
[crowd cheers]
Mr. Rad: Okay, let's settle down. Let's settle down, now. Now, by round of applause, you decide who the baddest crew is tonight. Let's hear it for Vick's crew.

WOW! This is monumentally bad!
7 January 2005 | by (Eden) – See all my reviews

I think this screenplay was written by a couple of junior high students whose lone experience in life has come from watching MTV. Actually, it is close to being funny, but right before you are about to laugh at how dumb it is, you are more repulsed by how bad it is. Then there is the acting, or lack thereof. I just love the way all of the "performers" pose and "front" for the camera. They look so moronic! I guess what you want to know, is this film so bad that it is good? No, it is so bad that it is horrible.

Oh yeah, the story is about crews that challenge each other to "dance-offs." Really, it is.
