Not Another Teen Movie (2001) Poster


Jump to: Cameo (2)
Many teen movie veterans make cameos in this movie.
First cinema film of Chris Evans.
Star Nathan West proposed to Chyler Leigh on set, while filming the She's All That (1999) scene.
The studio was unhappy with the original ending of the film, prompting the makers of the film to seek Molly Ringwald's help.
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.
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.
A banner in the cafeteria says 'SAVE FERRIS'.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
Jaime Pressly's character is named Priscilla after Priscilla Presley, for whom Jaime is sometimes mistaken.
In Russia, the film is entitled "Not a Children's Movie".


Melissa Joan Hart:  girl at the party.
Jarrett Lennon:  partygoer.
