The production did some filming in a South Central church that had been condemned and scheduled to be torn down. When the aged minister saw that the crew were refurbishing the church, he didn't understand that this was "show business refurbishing" and that the church would ultimately be burned down, dropping down on his knees and thanking God. Nobody had the heart to tell him the truth. See more »

Originally clocking in at over 103 minutes, nearly 11 and a half minutes were cut from the film before the snips for the "R" rating were made. Additionally, one scene was reedited. The following are the differences between the original version and the 92m theatrical cut:
The soccer game is cut by 51s, removing the part where West Andover even the score and Ox's and Charlie Boy's nicknames are mentioned.
The male shower scene is cut by 20s, removing dialogue about Esteban and visiting day.
An exterior shot of Coopersmith entering the chapel for the first time in the film, followed by an interior one of him walking between the chapel pews have both been removed (35s).
A 9s shot of Coopersmith rounding a corner in the basement is cut.
To make a jump scare work better, 47s have been cut of Coopersmith overhearing Sarge's and Reverend's drunken, rowdy conversation in the basement.
One line of dialogue is cut when Reverend is telling Sarge that Coopersmith is on punishment detail (7s).
One line of dialogue is cut when Reverend is telling Mrs. Caldwell about Esteban while the two are in the chapel (7s).
25s have been cut of drunken Sarge looking for Coopersmith while Coopersmith is attempting to pry the temple door open.
To make a jump scare work better, 4s have been cut of Coopersmith disturbing a rats' nest.
4s are cut of Reverend and Mrs. Caldwell continuing their conversation about Esteban outside.
25s are cut when Coopersmith uses the library computer for the first time in the film.
After Bubba throws Coopersmith's hat out the window, 15s of dialogue between Coopersmith and Kowalski have been cut.
7s have been cut from Colonel's lecture to Coopersmith right before he administers corporal punishment.
Leonard D'John has been cut out of the film (52s).
The scene where the pigs charge Coopersmith because Miss Friedemeyer is trying to pry the cross off his book has been reedited. The 92m version cross-cuts more between Friedemeyer and the book and Coopersmith and the pigs (and also contains bits and pieces of the cut footage from D'John's two scenes). It runs 2s longer than the 103m version's. Each version of the film has a couple shots in this scene that the other does not.
4s are cut of Captain Merrill handing out passes to the roller rink.
8s are cut of Miss Kelly and other kids rollerskating right before Coopersmith confronts the bullies about his missing book.
24s are cut of Coopersmith's confrontation with the bullies.
45s are cut of Sarge taking a wizz in the basement, causing smoke to rise up. All footage of Coopersmith trying to dodge him with the computer in his hands is removed, as well.
16s cut of Coopersmith getting and preparing a food tray in the cafeteria.
23s cut of Jake's speech to Coopersmith about how he doesn't belong at the academy.
After Jake gives Fred to Coopersmith, 16s of their dialogue has been cut.
12s are cut of workers building and setting up the Miss Heavy Artillery stage.
After Coopersmith discovers Esteban's tomb and Esteban possesses the computer, 1m 59s of footage have been ditched. The scene of Colonel delivering a graduation pep speech on the Miss Heavy Artillery stage is removed in its entirety, as is a tracking shot of Miss Friedemeyer driving home and opening the gate to her apartment before fetching her mail.
A 1m 11s scene of the Miss Heavy Artillery finalists doing the catwalk has been cut.
5s cut of Coopersmith wandering down the chapel hallway in a daze after hiding Sarge's body and before Kowalski surprises him.
14s cut of Coopersmith finding his way around the bleachers to talk to Miss Kelly.
10s cut of Coopersmith trying to talk to Miss Kelly, but nerves getting the best of him.
I watched this film recently with a couple of friends and I had to comment on it. It is by far and without a shadow of doubt, one of the worst movies I've seen in my life. Where can you start? The awful acting? The terrible directing and lighting? The worst plot I've come across in a long time? The list goes on...
The whole premise of the film as a horror film is really amusing. The total lack of suspense and the terrible special effects made us laugh out loud more than once.
In fact I really recommend this movie based on its comedy value. Also after watching this film I can say that even commercials will look like a piece of art
