Consider it the Rancho Carne 15 year high school reunion.
Former cheer captain Torrance Shipman (Kirsten Dunst), her protégé, Missy (Eliza Dushku), boyfriend, Cliff (Jesse Bradford), and one-time frenemy, Isis (Gabrielle Union) have reunited for the first time in over a decade.
The original #SquadGoals came together for Entertainment Weekly’s reunion issue and said it was the first time since the movie’s premiere that all four of them had been in the same place at the same time.
And it proved a good time to reminisce about that time during filming that, oh, you know, they got arrested in Mexico.
“First of all, it was Rosarito, not Tijuana,” Bradford clarified. “It was me, Eliza, Rini Bell [Kasey], and this dude Lance, one of the male cheerleaders on the Toros. I’m gonna blur the details of how and why, but needless to say, we got arrested.”
“We had to go in front of a judge -- I use that term loosely here -- and explain what happened. And he let us go,” he recalled. “They said that one of the producers, Max Wong, had to bail us out, but I don’t think any of them knew what happened until well after the fact.”
One person who wasn’t in attendance for this debauchery? Then 18-year-old Dunst. “I had no idea everyone was out partying!” she exclaimed. “I was just happy that it was the summer and I didn’t have to do schoolwork. I had everyone over to my house and had a pool party once, but my mom was there.”
ET caught up with the cast back in 2000 to learn how hard they trained in order to “go big or go home.” Watch the throwback clip:
