Bring it On

Trivia: When Torrence, Les, Missy, and Jan are driving in Les' car after picking Missy up, watch Les. He is constantly looking in his rearview mirror. This is because there is a cop car pulling someone over behind them. (00:26:20)

Trivia: Not a mistake, just something interesting I noticed. The cheerleader from the Clovers, the feisty short one, is a member of the singing group Blaque, who also sings the main soundtrack song. The other two members of the group feature too.

Trivia: The cast drove to City Walk at Universal Studios in Hollywood the night the filmed opened, and that's where they found out it had reached number one. Kirsten Dunst, who was 17 at the time, cried when she found out.

Trivia: The filmmakers paid $40,000 to use "Cherry Pie" during one of the auditions (the sexy girl who starts dancing on the table).

Trivia: Of the three leads, Eliza Dushku is the only one who wasn't a cheerleader in high school.

Trivia: A couple of the cheerleaders, Eliza Duskhu, and Jesse Bradford decided to go to Mexico one night to party, as most of the filming locations were in the San Diego area. However they were arrested, and had to be bailed out. They made it to set minutes before they were supposed to film the car wash scene.

Trivia: Ian Roberts, who played Sparky Polastri, improvised most of his lines (except for "spirit fingers") as he was a former member of the improv comedy troupe, Upright Citizens Brigade.

Trivia: Kirsten Dunst improvised the scene where she hears Cliff's track.

Trivia: The director hired two different choreographers for the Clovers and the Toros so that their choreography would feel different.

Trivia: The toothbrush scene wasn't in the original script. Torrance and Cliff had to meet someway, and they came up with the toothbrush scene idea to emphasize the sexual tension between them. The entire idea of Torrance spending the night at Missy's was to get Cliff and Torrance together for that scene.

Trivia: Gabrielle Union worked with the filmmakers to model Isis on Michael Jordan.

Trivia: James Franco and Jason Schwartzman both auditioned for the role of Cliff. However, Franco was unable to do Bring It On because of his role on Freaks and Geeks.

Trivia: Eliza Duskhu's role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer is what got her the role of Missy.

Trivia: Kirsten Dunst turned down Bring It On's original script, and actress Marley Shelton was signed on to play Torrance Shipman. However, Shelton decided on a different film, Bring It On was revised, and Dunst changed her mind.
