The only class she is worse than the leader in is history, taught by Mrs. Tingle, and the teacher hates her. When an attempt to get ahead in Mrs. Tingle's class goes awry, mayhem ensues and friendships, loyalties and trust are tested by the teacher's intricate mind-games.Written by
The film was originally shot with an R-rating in mind. However, it was decided by Dimension Films after filming that it would be cut down to a PG-13 rating to appeal to a wider audience. As a result, several scenes had to be edited or cut out completely. Most noticeably, the scene where Jo Lynn (Marisa Coughlan) reenacts a scene from The Exorcist (1973) had to be re-dubbed to excise expletive language. Instead of saying "Fuck me", she says "Take me".

No accused witch was burned at Salem. The victims of the scare were all hanged. Therefore Leigh Ann's report is flawed and Mrs. Tingle is entitled to mark her down on it. See more »
Most people don't like this because of what happened at Columbine High. But Hello! This is just a movie! A Great Movie! Movies don't create psychos! This movie is Kevin Williamson's masterpiece, it's full of suspense and comedy. The dialogues are great written. And the actors are great as well, especially Helen Mirren and Katie Holmes. Kevin Williamson Rocks!
