Trivia

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 »

This movie "sucks"...in a good way, according to Brad Renfro
1 January 2003 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Well, I was quite surprised when I saw that this little-known (or less than that) film only recieved a rating of 5 out of 10. The minute this movie was over, I hopped onto Amazon.com and ordered a copy for myself. I didn't even return it to the video store until my own copy came. I have never been this pleasantly surprised with a movie. The film starts off seemingly as just another teen movie where stereotypes and cliches abound. The humor even seems a little slapstick at first, not really my kind of humor. But once this film gets going, it doesn't let up. It takes you in and makes you look at things differently. Some of the quotes from this movie are the most touching and profound lines I've heard from a film since "The Breakfast Club" (still, my all-time FAVORITE movie), such as "When it comes to the ritual of growing up, sometimes you smile because you're happy. Other times, you smile just because you've survived. But hey, a smile is a smile." Those lines show that this movie goes deeper than just another teen flick and in the end, you have a feel-good feeling that stays with you for a while. I think that those of you who have viewed this film and gave it less than a seven need to view it again. But this time, look closer. . .let it take you in the way a good film should.
