The theatrical version features a Patton (1970) spoof, while the director's cut features a Braveheart (1995) spoof which the director felt would better lead into the payoff at the end. See more »
At the first football game that Gil goes to, the announcers
say that that was the first win since the last Bush was president. Then, when Gil goes into the office and the coach and the principal are thanking him for all he did, the coach then states that it was their first win in five years. The movie was made in 2002 when George W. Bush was president, five years before that Bill Clinton would be president, not George Bush. See more »
well, it's another high school movie....loser wins!
If you want a movie that's realistic, look somewhere else. If you want a cute film, where the losers come out on top, this is a pretty good movie. Dj Qualls is becoming a really good actor, and he's got the role of the geek nailed. Patten that boy for this part. There are some choice moments in this movie that make it better then some, and Vanilla Ice is in it...how cool is that? That's actually what makes this movie so great. The cameos. there are some major rockers in this that will refresh the screen at times (towards the end).
