Trivia

The bus driver "Red" played by Tommy Chong hums the tune, and sings some of the lyrics, from the song "Earache My Eye", which was the song that Chong and Cheech Marin play at the end of Up in Smoke (1978). See more »

Goofs

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. The re-route doesn't seem likely considering the rigid itinerary Principal Moss is keeping. See more »

Very funny and entertaining
16 June 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

One of Lampoon's last truly funny flicks, this borrows liberally from ANIMAL HOUSE to tell the story of a bunch of underachievers (to say the least) making a bus trip from Ohio to D.C. to meet with the president and tell him what is wrong with today's educational system. All the stereotyped characters are in place, and they are all funny as hell, particularly the fat brain-damaged slob standing in for John "Bluto" Blutarski, who was of course a senator, or a retired senator, or maybe even a dead senator by the time this story takes place. I may have written a previous review when I first bought this. I watched it today for the first time in quite awhile and was impressed on how well it was paced and put together. I suspect it cost a few bucks to make, just based on the many setups and sets, although the actors are for the most part unknown. And it smells like it was shot in Canada, which always saves money. As Leonard Maltin said of it, it is not funny every second but it sure keeps moving for its brief running time. I agree wholeheartedly, although I think it is funny every second -- as long as you put your brain on hold and are prepared to see a bunch of high school seniors drugging and chugging and fugging their way through the movie. I am just old enough that it somewhat shocked me the several times I have watched this. (By contrast, I was a late starter. I wasn't drugging and chugging until college, although I was certainly fugging in high school.) Ah well, I imagine this must have been R-rated just for the constant drug references, never mind all the beer and bourbon being sloshed down. Tommy Chong is their bus driver, for gosh sakes!
