Trivia

In the scene where Miss Banks is subbing for Mrs. Tingle she tells the class that "Josephine was just a little slut-bag whore, who was leaving her panties all around town." This is very similar to a line from another Kevin Williamson movie, Scream (1996). In Scream, Billy tells Sydney that her mother "was a slut-bag whore who flashed her shit all over town". See more »

Goofs

When Luke is feeding Mrs. Tingle the burger and fries and she asks for some wine, the second time he brings the cup up to her lips for a drink, she leans down to take a sip but you can clearly see she doesn't take a drink at all. See more »

An OK movie with a great performance by Helen Mirren
17 April 2000 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I will have to disagree with many comments on this movie saying that it was only a bomb. I thought this movie was quite interesting, surely not a great one, but good. The high point of this movie, in fact, is Helen Mirren. I was quite impressed with her inspiring performance - it kind of reminded me of Kathy Bates in "Misery". It is quite rare to see such a great performance like Helen Mirren's in an horror/suspense movie and this is the main reason why I have decided to comment on "Teaching Mrs. Tingle".
