The movie is set in Long Island but was shot in Salt Lake City so the director had to make sure that no mountains appeared in any shot. See more »

"The Substitute 3: Winner Takes All" is the best "Substitute" sequel. Karl Thomasson (Williams) is back in action. He (once again) goes undercover to foil a mobster's scheme to give high schools steroids.... and avenge a fellow teacher's brutal beating.
What's great about this sequel is that there's effort put into this. The action scenes are plentiful and Treat handles himself well during the hand-to-hand combat. The bad guys are over-the-top, and Thomasson's mercenary crew has at least 1 1\2 dimensions. Of course, the movie is weak script-wise, but it overcomes that with the usual professionalism of Treat.
Unfortunately, "The Substitute 4: Failure Is Not An Option" is a pretty poor follow-up. Avoid that one.
If you are a Treat completist, watch this, if not, you may or may not enjoy the cheesy action.
