The bus carrying the kids seems to be traveling south because they pass through Pennsylvania on the way to Washington D.C., but on arrival, the overhead shot shows the bus coming north on Arlington Memorial Bridge near the Lincoln Monument.

As with most films of this type, the movie stands on the shoulders of it's supporting players. The slut, Carla, who immediately checks out the men whenever she walks into the room. The geek, Virus, who plays the piano with his erection. The assassin, Travis, Star Trek fan, manipulator of the young and all around comedy fall guy. These actors are the ones who make us laugh. Not a great film, but when you're drunk, even the principal looks kinda cute (especially tarted up, a la Carla).
