Every scene in which "Henry" is in was filmed on location at Arcadia High School in Arcadia, California. The producers had to change the name of the school in the film to "Acadia High School" so they didn't have to pay as much money to the city of Arcadia. See more »

This is an imaginative, visually distinctive film that stands apart from the current, hum-drum collection of high school pics, mostly because it treats its audience with respect and has the visual chops to back it up. This is a romantic comedy for kids and their young parents, with a smart variation on Faust as the agent for the Devil takes the soul of an amoral kid. It's a great idea for young people to be exposed to these themes--temptation, redemption--particularly in the post-Columbine period.
