Storyline

On the last day of school, right on Senior Prank Day in Roosevelt High, things don't look good for meek English teacher Andy Campbell, who feels exceptionally expendable facing a bleak future in front of severe job cuts, just before the year's new school season. But soon, things will go from bad to worse when feeble Campbell will infuriate the scary hot-headed history teacher Ron Strickland, who in turn, he will challenge him in an old-school, no-holds-barred, mano-a-mano throwdown in front of everybody, in the parking lot after school. Inevitably, now that the fight is on, no excuses, no regrets, and certainly no talking sense into Strickland, is going to save Campbell who needs to face the consequences of his actions and pay the heavy price. After all, snitches get stitches. Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

In the model UN room scene, Holly asks Strickland and Campbell to sit at friendly countries to try to moderate a truce between the two. Strickland swaps his "country" from the hostile-to-Israel Iran to the hostile-to-the-world North Korea. Campbell refuses to swap his country from Israel. He could've swapped to a country in the seat right next to him - China. China has supported North Korea since the Korean War, they are North Korea's most important trade partner, and they share a 1400 kilometer border. See more »

Goofs

After revealing the "drawing" on the left side of the chalkboard, the board then shows writing in purple, then back to the drawing later in the day. If it was cleared to write notes, Campbell wouldn't have put the "drawing" back up later. See more »

Quotes

Campbell: I'm fucking done with this shit! Strickland wants to fuck with me? Campbell's going to fuck right back!

Very Funny
27 July 2017 | by RhondaWilliams76See all my reviews

I worked on set of this movie and the actors are some of the best to work with. They are really funny on and off screen. The movie is really close to what would probably happen with teachers in real life if they could get away with it. I loved this movie and didn't stop laughing. The cast works really well together to make this movie one of the best.
