During the game of "Suck and Blow," the cast was unable to sustain the breath to make a real credit card pass from mouth to mouth; a prop card made of cardboard was substituted that still did not work. Holes were drilled into it to make it easier, and when this failed also, the whole cast's lips were heavily coated in chapstick to force the card to stick. See more »
The debate teacher refers to Cher as "Cher Horowitz," but the name on her report card (viewed when her father is looking at it, after the grades have been changed) is "Cher Hamilton." The piece of mail her father tosses aside right before looking at her report card says "Melvin Hamilton" also. See more »

I've seen this teen movie countless times, and it's still enjoyable to watch. The jokes do wear thin after several viewings, but it is still a funny film. The cast are all very good, although I do find Brittany Murphy slightly irritating. The plot isn't very deep, but at least it is there, as many teen movies lack this vital feature. I am a little worried about the characters only being 15/16 and acting extremely maturely for their ago, however that seems to be the only problem with this movie.
