Trivia

Caitlin O'Heaney's character of Miss Farmer originally only had the one scene where Jerry seduces and kisses her in order to get detention after school. After the movie was completed it was tested, and audiences desperately wanted to know what happened to Jerry and Miss Farmer. The makers (including Steven Spielberg) brought O'Heany and Casey Siemaszko back to film the last scene of the movie where she walks into the bookstore and passionately kisses Jerry. See more »

Goofs

When Jerry is in class and the teacher is scrolling through the names of the students on her clip-board. If you look at her fingers while she is seen holding the clip-board, she has nice, painted, long fingernails, when they do a close up of her running her finger down the list of names you can clearly tell it's a guys finger with a short non painted fingernail.

One Great Teen Comedy
9 February 2004 | by (Bay Area) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite Teenage Comedies when I grew up. I don't want to tell any of the plot points and ruin the movie for you. Casey Simasko was great as Gerry Mitchell. Awsomely cast all around especially the Buddy Revell character. I don't want to overhype the movie to blow out your expectations because I had none when I saw it the first time but a must see for people that love comedies. Great Script and Direction. Anyone that did not like this movie must not have went to public school or grew up in a foreign land. Recomended for people under 50. Check it out.
