Question: Why is it that in the scene where Bender is in the gym, he has a sneaker and boot on, but when he gets back to the library, he has replaced it with his boot? Was there a deleted scene where he loses his shoe or something? It just does not make sense that he would somehow find 1 sneaker, decide to wear it, then kick it off on his way back.
Question: This has baffled me for ages. Instead of tolerating John Bender, why doesn't Richard Vernon simply get him expelled? Vernon must have realised that Bender was not only uncontrollable and a potential threat to him, but also someone who didn't care about his education and was disruptive to others. So why didn't he take the simpler option of getting him out of the school, as opposed to giving him countless detentions?Gavin Jackson
Question: All 3 boys have their last names mentioned in the movie at some point, but the 2 girls do not have their last names mentioned at all. In the credits at the end of the film, it mentions the full names of the girls... Claire Standish and Allison Reynolds. Why would these last names be created just for the credits if they were never used? Was there a relevance for doing this?
Question: Is it an error when Andrew says "I got a meet this Saturday..."? Doesn't the movie take place ON Saturday?
Question: Mr. Vernon knew that Brian, John, Claire and Andrew had detention for what they did, so when Alison shows up as well, why did he let her have detention? Why didn't he tell her to go back home?
