Hi everybody. There is a dialogue in "The Book of Eli" movie. I want to know that this usage of none is correct or not.
Thank you.
dialogue:
"Where is your water?"
"They don't have none. They were gonna take yours."

    The correct form is "They don't have any". But the double negative is sometimes heard in informal speech, usually among people who aren't very well educated.
