Trivia

While the opening credits say "based on true events", Thayer did not exist. Writer and director Regina Crosby based Teenage Dirtbag on her experience in high school, Coeur d'Alene (where the high school scenes were actually filmed), and not on any one instance. Of the movie, Crosby said "It definitely talks about the pain you go through in growing up," She said. "You have a lot of regrets that you take into adulthood from high school, and you almost never get the opportunity to make corrections on those regrets or reach out to somebody you didn't reach out to at the time."

Goofs

In Study Hall Thayer shows Amber a huge scar on his stomach. In a later scene without his shirt on, the scar isn't there. See more »

good review
11 June 2011 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I agree with most of the good reviews of this movie. It affected me really hard. Although I didn't like the poem part because I don't know..I do that when I'm in some emotional personal thoughts and thinking of death. It is small budget film and some unknown actors but who cares? I give them an A. The pacing, acting and directing was great. I also never thought it is a 2009 movie. I was getting into a deep feeling at the end when he's really desperate in getting the girl but why couldn't he just say 'I like/love you' straightforward? Just thinking I thought he could be a lot bolder..Really good movie..Worth a watch. I also like the movie soundtrack at the end, it is tragic but beautiful. Too bad popular movies don't have this.
