Producer Rudy Cohen didn't care for the casting of Brad Pitt. Director Rospo Pallenberg found four young women who all said Pitt was gorgeous in order to convince Cohen that the casting of Pitt was a correct choice. See more »
Throughout the movie it is shown that Dwight does not understand the very concept of speed, what it means or how it's calculated. Yet Dwight is an avid car enthusiast and driver. If he does not know what speed is, he would have great trouble driving a car, and would probably be unable to get a driver's license anywhere in the world. See more »

When shown on TV, all of the death scenes are trimmed by using slow motion shots a la Friday the 13th (1980) See more »
I think it'd be fair to say that, if Cutting Class didn't have Brad Pitt, the entire would would have forgotten about it in '89.
On the surface, the concept of Cutting Class isn't terrible. It seems like it would have potential to be fairly fun. Plus, we're given the fabulous Jill Scholen as our leading lady and her track record with horror projects is pretty solid from The Stepfather to Popcorn. Surely, she wouldn't sign on to a turkey, right?
Sadly, this is wrong. Very wrong. Poor Scholen has very little to do, nor does the rest of the cast, including a very strangely placed Martin Mull and Roddy McDowell who must have owed someone a favor.
The tone varies between weird comedy and bland slashings, but neither work well by themselves and they certainly don't gel well together. Maybe the script read better than the film turned out. It's also shot with zero style and looks like an impossibly bland TV movie.
Cutting Class isn't worth a revisit. Bank some erasers together instead.
