First film produced, written, directed by and starring African-Americans to cross the $100-million mark.

The film reunites Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith just over 20 years since they co-starred in Set It Off (1996).

This is the third film to co-star Jada Pinkett Smith and Larenz Tate. They previously appeared together in Menace II Society (1993) and The Inkwell (1994).

Regina Hall and Queen Latifah both appeared in Scary Movie 3 (2003), though they didn't share any scenes together.

Features what is arguably the first demonstration in a feature film of "grapefruiting" as an oral sexual act.

This is the first film to star both Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall. Hall previously played "Brenda" in the "Scary Movie" franchise, who was a parody of Smith's character "Maureen" from Scream 2 (1997). Also a part of the "Scream" franchise is Queen Latifah, who has signed on as an executive producer for Season 3 of Scream: The TV Series (2015).

Shipping to cinemas under the pseudonym "Southern Essence."

The words "Thug Life" are written on the wall of a crude, run-down motel upon the girls' arrival. "Thug Life" is a sentiment late rapper Tupac Shakur popularized during most of his rap career and he even had it tattooed across his stomach. Jada Pinkett Smith (who plays "Lisa Cooper") and Shakur were childhood friends.

Mike Epps' second film with Tiffany Haddish. They appeared previously in The Janky Promoters (2009).

With a relatively modest budget of $19 million, it's less than what co-star Jada Pinkett Smith's husband Will Smith receives on average for just one film appearance.

Tiffany Haddish is 9-10 years younger than each of her co-stars, despite their characters being the same age. Fittingly, her character acts the youngest of the leads.

Homage is paid to Set It Off (1996) which starred Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith during bar scene. After Ryan's disastrous meeting with Bethany after drinking the absinthe-spiked drinks, the ladies don colorful wigs and enter the local bar. The wigs are the same color and style Latifah, Pinkett-Smith, Vivica A. Fox and Kimberly Elise wore during one of the robberies in Set It Off. And, just before they step onto the dance floor, Tiffany Haddish says "let's set it off."
