Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The first school in the movie that 'Dizzy/ Gil' (DJ Qualls) gets kicked out of was shot at W. Charles Akins High School. At the time, half of the school was unoccupied as it had just been opened and only had 9th and 10th graders. The marquee outside of the school was replaced to show the name of the film's high school which, combined with the newness of the school, created confusion for parents and buses trying to actually drop off their students.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): 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.
  • The leaves on the trees outside of the first high school in the film were added by the crew. Due to the fall-time weather and the fact that the high school (where the filming took place) had just opened and had little landscaping, the director needed the trees to be buffed up.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Kirk refers to something being as difficult as "...the fiftieth level of Kunark!". Kunark is a continent in the game EverQuest, to which he's referring. There is no fiftieth level.
