A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
Pivotal scenes that take place in the woods are tinted blue, same as the woods scenes in Heathers (1988). In one scene Wichita says, "If you ever find yourself turning into one of those, eat some Drano." In Heathers (1988), Heather Chandler died from drinking Drano. See more »
At the end of the movie when Wendy misses the bus, it switches to the inside of the other bus and in the top left corner when they show Witchita on the bus, you can see Wendy standing at the back of the bus before she gets on at it all. See more »
Daniel Waters does it again. Why no theatrical release?
This movie was completely hysterical. It took me a while to actually get my hands on a copy of it, but now it has a well deserved place in my collection. Daniel Waters brings us another underrated teen comedy that is destined to find a following just like his now cult classic writing debut "Heathers". It completely annoys me that New Line continues to release crappy films, yet sends this comic gem straight to video. It is definitely one of the best teen comedies to come out in the past few years. The entire cast is great, and James King is friken HOT! Well worth a rental and a buy. Thank you Daniel Waters for making another contemporary classic wrongfully overlooked. Now how about a "Heathers 2"?
