When Billy and Eric face off on a math problem in the academic decathlon, Billy writes "Eric drinks his own pee" on his portion of the blackboard. Traces of erased portions of this phrase from previous takes can still be seen on the blackboard. See more »

This is Adam Sandler's first major movie and I have to say this is the worst of his movies I've seen. Plenty of jokes fall flat, some things suddenly happen you can't understand (like the examples one imdb user noted: Miss Lippy and glue, sloppy joe, dead clown). I can't even understand Sandler's character. It's hard to connect with Billy Madison.
The academic decathlon challenge also fell flat. It's as if it's some lame plot device the writers thought up just to finish the movie.
