A 7th Heaven star, an R&B girl group and Sinbad walk onto a red carpet—tep, it must be an event from 2000!

Bring It On made its big screen debut on Aug. 25 at the Mann Bruin Theatre in Westwood, California, and almost all of the Rancho Carne Toros and the East Compton Clovers showing up to represent the teen cheerleading comedy that would go on to become the surprise hit of the summer. 

While we've already dished out 20 behind-the-scenes secrets about the filming of the cult classic that starred Kirsten Dunst, Gabrielle Union and Eliza Dushku, we're also going to take you on a trip down memory lane by revisiting Bring It On's big premiere. 

Of course, the style is so early aughts, with lots of ruffles, low-rise jeans and questionable hairstyles. But dare we say that all the premiere attendees—including Ben Savage and Beverley Mitchell—totally brought it? 

21 Bring It On Behind-the-Scenes Secrets

So can we get to these nostalgic snaps already? We're on curfew, girl...

Kirsten Dunst

Listen, she was always captain material!

Gabrielle Union

Oh, she always brings it. Also, you could tell us this was from last year and we'd believe you.

Eliza Dushku

Her stylist had no other wardrobe options, this was the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star's last resort. 

Jesse Bradford

How vigorously do we think he brushed his teeth before walking the red carpet?

Nathan West and Chyler Leigh

Do we think she's ever called him McCheery? (Sorry, McSteamy!)

Brandi Williams and Shamari DeVoe

The two members of Blaque had a real Justin and Britney denim moment—perhaps they inspired the pop star duo to truly bring it one year later?

Natina Reed

The Blaque singer stood out in her fiery ensemble. Maybe she wasn't on the group email? 

Lindsay Sloane

She's. Still. Big. Red.

Clare Kramer

Never forget this is a cheerocracy. 

Nicole Bilderback

She's W-W-Whitney.

Richard Hillman

Yeah, definitely not boyfriend material, Aaron.

Shane West

A red carpet walk to remember.

Ben Savage

Boy meets cheerleaders.

Jon Voight

We literally cannot think of a single reason why he was at this event but, sure, why not?

Thomas Ian Nicholas

The actor took a break from American Pie to hang with the squads.  

Beverley Mitchell

Lucy Camden's glam night out.

Dulé Hill

The West Wing star cheered on the cast.


Rule of thumb: Always end with Sinbad.

Bring It On is available to rent or purchase on Amazon Prime Video.
