Leigh Ann is salutatorian when she needs to be valedictorian to get her scholarship to Harvard. 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
Helen Mirren described the part of Mrs. Tingle as her "dream role", noting that the appeal was the ability to lay in bed all day in the "most comfortable costume I've ever worn". See more »
When Leigh Ann and Luke are having sex, Mrs. Tingle tries to break free of her constraints. In the close up it is clearly noticeable that there are two different sets of constraints that are not attached in any way, one around Mrs. Tingle's wrists and one around the bed post. The one around the bed post has a loop for Helen Mirren to put her wrists through. The constraints would go back with Helen Mirren's wrist if it were a single piece, but the loop keeps its shape.

You present yourself with such self-assured tenacity, but your fear shows around the edges. You can do better.

We're trying, Mrs. Tingle. Work with us.

The credits list Robert Gant as "Professor" but those scenes where deleted. Robert Gant never appears in the film. See more »
A teenager horror. nice, unrealistic but seductive for the performance of Helen Mirren who transforms her character in the lead pillar for sustain the film. the young actors are not bad but the script does not give many chances to a coherent image of revengers. so, a sort of mix between teenager film, suspense and few drops of horror. the tension works and the memories of viewer about difficult teachers are real useful in this case.
