Storyline

A gang of boys under the Brooklyn Bridge are united by their common interest in break dancing. Some work as pizza delivery boys, hence they call themselves the "Delivery Boys". They form a dance team and enter a local break dance contest, sponsored by a woman's panty manufacturer. A rival gang's sponsor intimidates their employer into thinking she must keep the boys working so they won't be harmed. She gives the boys some "specialized" deliveries to make them late for the contest. The antics and calamities abound as the boys wrestle with her work assignments and getting to the contest on time.

I remember this film
6 February 2000 | by kevvySee all my reviews

Me and a friend went to the theater one day and saw this film because another movie was sold out or something...

To this day whenever we say a movie is bad we always compare it to this move...

"It's not as bad as Delivery Boys"

"You should have seen Delivery Boys if you thought that was bad."

I don't know why, but this movie just stuck out as awful, and has forever earned a home in our psyches.
