(at around 3 mins) At one point, the principal suggests saving money by reusing the set from "Our Town". The joke in this is that Thornton Wilder's "Our Town" has no set. See more »
(at around 48 mins) Zeke tells Miss Burke "It's too Hot", yet he's seen clearly wearing a waffle shirt under his dark t-shirt. Waffle shirts are made primarily to keep one warm, so why would he be wearing one under his t-shirt if it's "too hot"? See more »

During the cast pictures at the end, the science teacher who was 'killed' in the film is shown very much alive with a patch over his eyes and bandages over his fingers. See more »
The original uncut version of the film included a character named Venus (played by Kidada Jones) who was in about five scenes. All her scenes were cut. She is shown in some TV previews for the film, as well as Faculty/Tommy Hilfinger ads and commercials. She is also visible in a scene in the theatrical version, standing next to Gabe (Usher) in Mr Furlong's (Jon Stewarts) science class when they are looking at the "new species" in the aquarium.

They Are Taking Over the World through the Back Door
On the Harrington High School in Ohio, the newcomer Marybeth Louise Hutchinson (Laura Harris) tries to befriend the outcast Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell (Clea DuVall). The quarterback Stan Rosado (Shawn Hatosy) quits the football team and breaks off with his girlfriend Delilah Profitt (Jordana Brewster), who is the editor of the school newspaper and head cheerleader. Zeke Tyler (Josh Hartnett), who is repeating the senior year and sells drugs to the other students, has an argument with his teacher Elizabeth Burke (Famke Janssen). When the bullied Casey Connor (Elijah Wood) finds a weird being on the football field, he brings it to his Professor Edward Furlong (Jon Stewart) that finds that the unknown specimen lives in the water and has the ability of replicating. Later, Delilah brings Casey, who is the photographer of the newspaper and has a crush on her, to the faculty room to snoop around and find any evidence for a story, they need to hide in a closet when Coach Joe Willis (Robert Patrick) and the teacher Karen Olson (Piper Laurie) arrive. Delilah and Casey witness the coach and the teacher attacking Nurse Rosa Harper (Salma Hayek) and they stumble with the corpse of Mrs. Jessica Brummel (Susan Willis), who has recently died, in the closet. They call the police but are discredited by Principal Valerie Drake (Bebe Neuwirth). On the next morning, Casey discloses to Delilah, Stokely and Stan that he believes that aliens are taking over the planet through their high school. Zeke and Marybeth overhear the conversation and join the group. Further they discover that the aliens need water to survive and Zeke's drug is diuretic and kills them. But the problem is who can be trusted in the group?
"The Faculty" is a great sci-fi with a tribute to the classic "Invasion of the Body Snatchers". I saw this movie for the first time in the late 90's and yesterday I saw it again on DVD and it is impressive the cast joined by Robert Rodriguez in this film. The plot is mysterious, entertaining and well resolved and also supported by an excellent soundtrack. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Prova Final" ("Final Test")
