At the school during the dance while Thomas and Jackie are locked in a biology classroom, Thomas tries to break down the door. A white shade pulled down over the window in the door extends down far past the door knob (from 1:06:38 to 1:06:44), but 1 second later the bottom of the shade is above the door knob (at around 1h 06 mins), then below the door knob again (at around 1h 06 mins).

Thomas Miller: And that, Mrs. Bleckner, is why I don't have the formula on your desk. So very, very sorry.
Mrs. Bleckner: Let's try this one more time, shall we? Your math homework, Mr. Miller. And please refrain from patronizing me with "my dog ate it" or "my grandmother passed away".
Thomas Miller: Actually, you see, it's sort of a combination thing. The truth is, my grandmother was helping me with my homework. Bless her soul. Then my dog pounced on the kitchen table and ate her. Yep! That's why I don't have my homework. My dog ate my ...

As Good As It Gets For A Young Adult Fantasy
20 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spy School is a really good movie. Although it doesn't share the science fiction special effects of Spy Kids, it has a similar appeal. The camera work and the lighting are excellent. The plot is not predictable; there is actually a mystery going on here that kids and adults will enjoy. The kid actors are wonderful. There's even some cool music, including two renditions of Macho Man. Of course what would a teenage spy caper be without some crawling through the ducts, but that's forgivable. This is a great movie to share with your children. Nothing less than innocent here, don't worry. The most violence is a gun than never shoots and a guy falling a few feet off a ladder. Otherwise this is perfect entertainment for the entire family.
