Trivia In the first "street dancing" scene, in which Kelly accompanies Ozone and Turbo to the beach, the audience watching the dancing is comprised of surfers and beach bums. A man in a black singlet claps with the music. It's Jean-Claude Van Damme in his first on-screen appearance. According to Van Damme, he tried hard to draw attention to himself by jumping in the air and doing flips, but they were not included in the film. See more »
Goofs In the last audition scene, Kelly and Turbo are seen ripping off their sleeves, but in a brief long shot, their jackets are still on. See more »
