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 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

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.
[cheers, applause]
Mr. Rad: All right, let's hear it for David and Elgin's crew.

Incredibly Awful
28 December 2004 | by DLaing22See all my reviews

The reviews here are far more entertaining than the movie itself; but I watched the flick to see what the fuss was about and WHOA it IS that bad! All I can add is how can anyone here like the movie for its dancing??? That opening scene where the guy pretends to be a sculpture has got to be the dumbest thing I have ever seen on film. Ever. And the dancing is so damn repetitive and boring after a while.

This thing blew me away for the wrong reasons... It has atrocious camera-work and editing... I wonder if they required any of the cast to take ANY kind of acting classes before filming... chock full of mind-numbing stereotypes... I can go on but it almost goes without saying I think.

Anyway one of the worst movies to be theater-released in a long time IMO
