Trivia

The bus driver "Red" played by Tommy Chong hums the tune, and sings some of the lyrics, from the song "Earache My Eye", which was the song that Chong and Cheech Marin play at the end of Up in Smoke (1978). See more »

Goofs

Principal Moss punishes the primary characters for throwing a party in his house without his knowledge by giving them detention on a Saturday. But Principal Moss must be much nicer than he lets on; realistically, they would be arrested and charged with breaking-and-entering, destruction of private property (Miosky eating his goldfish), vandalism, and so on.

Alternate Versions

The TV network version has new scenes which include:
  • An additional scene on the school bus with Steve trying to get on Dags's and Reggie's good side with non-alcoholic beer and Miosky responding by spitting it in Steve's face after sipping some of it.
  • A scene in the quarry after Travis's escape from the reservoir where his inflatable life-sized doll, Lt. Urura, deflates.
  • An entirely new ending set at Fairmount High's graduation ceremony with the President in attendance. Travis crashes the proceedings by subduing Steve and stands on the stage and threatens to blow up the auditorium with dynamite strapped to his body. After Reggie finally tells Dags that Travis is the once who has been chasing them throughout the movie, they manage to talk him out of detonating the suicide bomb, and Travis is disarmed and taken away by Secret Service agents. The film then ends on a cliff-hanger when Dags and Reggie squabble over using Travis's gun which accidentally goes off while the President, Principal Moss and a Secret Service agent are in the line of fire. A person is hit and falls (the film doesn't show who). Dags and Reggie close the movie with their refrain "uh-oh" (implying that they might have accidentally shot the President).

A great and very personal movie for me
21 February 2004 | by avelitchevSee all my reviews

I really don't care about what others think, but for me this movie is the best teen comedy ever. Maybe, it's just because I've not seen a lot of teen comedies.

It was year 1996 in Russia, when I bought this movie on VHS in little shop near my house. At this time I was a little stupid kid. I think, I was 10 or 11 years old. This movie made a big impression on me. You know, it's kinda hard to explain my feelings in English, cause it's not my native language, but I'll try.

Since I was a kid, I wanted to become a "cool, mature guy". I thought that being mature is like having parties all the time, drinking alcohol and so on. "Senior trip" had it all in it. It was really funny, it had all this "cool" music, that I tried to like. At this time I got my first "Nirvana" CD. I liked to be the one I was. I liked being bad, talking in bad language, joking about sex. Yes, I was a bad kid. A really bad one. After years of life such as this I get to hospital, I was really depressed, but it has nothing to do with the movie.

It was very cool to listen to grunge music in 1996, though it was not so popular in the US. And the movie felt like a "grunge" movie for me. Yeah, I know it's a very stupid movie, it has a lot of crap in it, but I still like it, cause it was like a Bible at my teenage. It showed me another, alternative life, not the stupid life I was living. My best friend liked this movie, too. He is the only one whom I showed it to this day. For me it's very personal movie, though it's neither about my life nor about my country. I think, it's very hard to understand, why I think it's great. Cause it's just my feeling, which I can't explain in Russian, too.

After this movie I saw some teen comedies like "American pie", "Road trip", "Not another teen movie", "Scary movie", but all of them are a much more badder than "Senior trip". Yes, I laughed when I watched first parts of "American pie" and "Scary movie", but I've never wanted to re-watch them again.

I don't think that this movie will be a hit, if it gets re-published today. The world has changed, the teenagers have changed. This movie is a history now. Nothing else. But in my heart it is a classic.
