Grab your spankies and don't you dare drop the spirit stick, we've got something to celebrate.
Directed by Peyton Reed and written by Jessica Bendinger, the movie premiered on Aug. 25, 2000, and became a surprise hit at the box office, with audiences quickly learning Bring It On was the poo, so they needed to take a big whiff. And take a huge one they did as Bring It On would continue to dominate the box office for several weeks, spawn five direct-to-video sequels and continued to endure as a cult classic decades after its release.
And it seems the making of the movie was just as fun and drama-filled as what made it on-screen, with the cast bonding during a pre-production cheer camp and two of its stars—cough, Eliza Dushku and Jesse Bradford, cough—getting arrested during filming. Like Aaron said, "It'll be like high school, only better!"
So don't worry, we got the door, Tor, as we head down memory lane and spill these secrets you might not know about Bring It On...
