  • Obviously, in the terms of this movie, any school where the kids have to study is bad, just as a school where the kids can run around and raise hell is good.

    Unfortunately Hollywood plants this seed in several school related films. You're not cool unless you skip school (Ferris Bueller), treat school as a joke (Grease) or the only sane one in a bunch of weirdos (The Faculty). You also get the view that 'jocks' are all bozos. Maybe they are, but I seriously doubt it. There probably are films that do treat

    • There probably are films that do treat studying responsibly but I can't recall one.

      Legally Blonde shows students seriously studying. The "bubblehead sorority valley girl" turns out to be the best student at Harvard Law School.
