Lee had a three picture deal with Island Pictures. After "She's Gotta Have It" "School Daze" was supposed to be the second. He received a call from island saying they no longer wanted to do the picture because it was too costly and they had lost confidence in Lee and his production people. The next say he was at Columbia with David Puttnam and David Picker for a negative pick-up deal. The budget was upped two million to six million and the picture was made. See more »

This was the best black college movie of all time! This movie went places that know other college movie to this date have yet to explore. I was eight when I first saw this movie and the message that Spike was making was over my head at the time I viewed this movie, but his message is still a point for our people today. I every once in awhile will set down to look at this great movie and come up with things to talk about with others. This movie made me want to attend a HBCU and I did Delaware State University and I even joined a frat. This movie comes with my highest recommendation. If you missed the message in the movie, its over your head and you need to watch it again.
