Leigh Ann is salutatorian when she needs to be valedictorian to get her scholarship to Harvard. The only class she is worse than the leader in is history, taught by Mrs. Tingle, and the teacher hates her. When an attempt to get ahead in Mrs. Tingle's class goes awry, mayhem ensues and friendships, loyalties and trust are tested by the teacher's intricate mind-games. Written by
When asked why she did this film, Helen Mirren replied, "Because they gave me a shitload of money to do it." See more »
When Leigh Ann and Mrs. Tingle fight towards the end of the movie, the blood running from Leigh Ann's nose keeps changing patterns. It starts off as a big blood smear to a simple line of blood running down her nose. See more »
First of all, forget those ads where they make you think this is kind of a horror movie. This is one of the best comedies I've seen in a while. Those who thought that Kevin Williamson was "dead" were COMPLETELY wrong. This is one hell of a movie with a great and tremendously funny script and with a great cast. Marisa Coughlan should be nominated to the Oscar...her THE EXORCIST scene is a classic already. She steals the show although Helen Mirren is great in her bitchy role (you find yourself shouting to the screen "KILL HER!!!") Rent it, you won´t be disappointed.
