* ShoutOut: Tupac Shakur was originally going to star as Jody, but was infamously murdered before production got underway. The film pays homage to him to referring to him as Jody's older (and murdered) brother and having a huge picture of him hanging up in Jody's room as well as other family photos showing Tupac in this role.

It's implied that Yvette was in on this scheme. None of them are shown facing any repercussions.]]
