Plot hole: Summer vacation couldn't be taken away just because it is winter, (or just snowy), they could just go by the date.
Continuity mistake: When T.J. goes back to the school to investigate the green light, you will first hear him say "9:20." Then a few shots later he says "9:23 and a half." Then one shot later, you will hear him say "9:22 and a fourth."
Principal Prickly: I never saw Philliam again. He quit teaching, went into politics, eventually became Secretary of Education, until the president fired him for trying to get rid of recess again. Only this time it was nationwide.
Trivia: Near the end of the movie, a teacher yells, "Hey teacher, leave those kids alone." A clear reference to Pink Floyd's song "Brick in the Wall".
