Trivia / Bratz

  • The Cameo: The Movie features a brief cameo by NLT, Kevin McHale's former boy band.
  • Creator Killer: Sean McNamara not directing another film till the Playing Against Type film Soul Surfer
  • Dawson Casting:
    • Cloe's actress (Skyler Shaye) was 21 at the time The Movie was released. She played a senior high schoolgirl, of course. Also Anneliese van der Pool, who's 23 years old when she played Avery.
    • Inverted with then 15-year-old Nathalie Ramos playing senior Yasmin (unless she's that smart to jump three grades).
  • Dueling Shows: With Trollz, which toyline flopped and show only lasted a single season.
  • Franchise Killer: Downplayed. The film bombing is often believed to be the main cause of the toyline fading into relative obscurity.
  • Genre-Killer: The movie led to Kit Kittredge: An American Girl being Screwed by the Cinemas the following year, and all further doll movies, Bratz or otherwise, have been direct-to-video.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Jon Voight, why?
  • Not Screened for Critics: Despite what people may expect, the movie somehow managed to avert this.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Cinegroupe produced the first direct-to-video movie, Starrin` and Stylin`, and featured a different cast from the TV series (which was produced by Fox and Lionsgate). However, Starrin` and Stylin` didn't list the voice credits.
    • For the TV show's second season, Fox stopped producing the series, so Lionsgate took over, replacing the entire cast.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: The courts found the toy line was being worked on by Mattel before the creator left the company, so Mattel won a suit to discontinue the line. According to some fans, this is evidence that Barbie is jealous of the Bratz. Speaking to those fans—Judge Alex Kozinski, who granted MGA the appeal, seemed to agree that there was some "jealousy" involved in the case, saying, "America thrives on competition; Barbie, the all‐American girl, will too."(See here) and (here).
