Trivia / Bratz

  • The Cameo: The Movie features a brief cameo by NLT, Kevin McHale's former boy band.
  • 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.
  • 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."[1][2]
