Not Another Teen Movie (2001) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (2) | Spoilers (1)
First cinema film of Chris Evans.
Star Nathan West proposed to Chyler Leigh on set, while filming the She's All That (1999) scene.
Many teen movie veterans make cameos in this movie.
Eric Christian Olsen's character, Austin, is a combination of Lance Harbor in "Varsity Blues" & Dean Sampson in "She's All That." Both of those characters were portrayed by Paul Walker.
The studio was unhappy with the original ending of the film, prompting the makers of the film to seek Molly Ringwald's help.
Chris Evans (Jake Wyler) sang "Janie's Got a Gun" (by Aerosmith) at the stadium. During "Prom Tonight", the cast actually sings. No additional/backup voices were added.
A banner in the cafeteria says 'SAVE FERRIS'.
The original title was "Teen Movie", but this was ditched as the movie got more and more... un-teen. Then the title was changed to "NOT A Teen Movie" because of this. Then it was changed to "Not Another Teen Movie" because of all the parodies and the fact that there were so many teen movies before it.
Nearly all the main cast - including Eric Christian Olsen, Mia Kirshner, Eric Jungmann, Jaime Pressly and Chris Evans - also star in Marilyn Manson's Tainted Love video. The video also includes Chyler Leigh's transformation from Janey to a goth.
Buildings in the movie are named for makers of the movies that are being parodied. For example, John Hughes High School, "Anthony Michael Dining Hall" (Anthony Michael Hall), and "Harry Dean Stadium" (Harry Dean Stanton).
During the big football game near the end, when a bunch of players run off the field, the name on one of the players' shirts is EXTRA.
Jaime Pressly's character is named Priscilla after Priscilla Presley, for whom Jaime is sometimes mistaken.
The filmmakers couldn't get the rights to use footage from She's All That (1999) so they shot the scene with two different people (on the library set) and made the TV blurry so you couldn't tell.
Ron Lester's character,Reggie Ray, is a spoof of Billy Bob in "Varsity Blues," which was also portrayed by Lester.
In Russia, the film is entitled "Not a Children's Movie".
The set of John Hughes High school in this film is the same set as Sunnydale High used in the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
