Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): During "Steppin' to the Bad Side", tambourines appear just before the gospel break. It's part of the choreography, using an old stage and film musical technique.
  • Beyoncé Knowles auditioned in full costume and performed with choreography. She has said she considers this her first film as an actress.
  • The jokes that Bobby Slayton tells in the Miami night club were taken verbatim from Don Rickles's 1968 album "Hello, Dummy!"
  • This is the only film to ever lead in the number of nominations in a particular year (in this case eight) at the Academy Awards but receive no Oscar nomination for Best Picture.
