Goofs

During the Big Bounce, right after Lil' Kim announces both Wade's Crew and the Lil Saints have tied, Wade strides up next to her. But when it cuts to the next shot, he's seen from the back standing with his crew. When it cuts back to Lil Kim, Wade is not standing by her (this whole sequence takes about 2 or 3 seconds).

Quotes

[first lines]
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.

Amazing Saturday night Crap-a-movie fest
15 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

If you have nothing else to do on a Saturday night invite some friends over and have a Crap-a-Movie fest. I particularly recommend to watch this movie first and then watch Torque. I have to say watching those movies together back to back is one of the greatest achievements of my life. Just sitting with a room full of people and making fun of bad movies makes it worthwhile. And make sure you don't miss the very beginning of this movie because after the opening serving it's all down hill. So go on get on the phone see what your friends are doing invite them over, pop some popcorn and get ready to have your face rocked off by the sheer greatness that two crappy movies can bring to your life.
