Goofs

When the boys are rioting in the school yard, they are deemed to be using radio controlled model planes to attack the teachers. As the models fly low over the top of the teachers who are crawling low along the ground, (it would not be allowed these days) the models are clearly not radio controlled models, but rather the control line variety. Their circular flight path makes this very obvious. See more »

A movie deserving video release
16 September 2003 | by docmusimdbSee all my reviews

This movie has stayed fondly in my memory since I saw it as a kid. The sight of a hoard of school kids destroying a platform that was meant to be used for a mass caning was unforgettable. I'm sure a lot of people would pay to see it again - where is an entrepreneur to convince the studio to release it on video or DVD?
