Trivia

After an incident similar to the Littleton school shooting occured in Germany too, the German release title was changed from 'Tötet Mrs. Tingle' (Kill Mrs. Tingle) to 'Rettet Mrs. Tingle' (Save Mrs. Tingle). However the German video release still shows 'Tötet Mrs. Tingle' on the box. See more »

Goofs

When Leigh Ann and Luke are having sex, Mrs. Tingle tries to break free of her constraints. In the close up it is clearly noticeable that there are two different sets of constraints that are not attached in any way, one around Mrs. Tingle's wrists and one around the bed post. The one around the bed post has a loop for Helen Mirren to put her wrists through. The constraints would go back with Helen Mirren's wrist if it were a single piece, but the loop keeps its shape.

Not at all as good as Pep Squad
10 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

This adaptation of the Steve Balderson film is also very similar to "9 to 5," but lacks the warmth of that film and the stylish excitement of Pep Squad. They should have kept the title "Killing Mrs. Tingle" instead of changing it to "Teaching..." I think that was pretty weak. Overall, writing is fair, but the story is superficially shallow. Metaphors and real meaning needed to be here.
