Trivia: In chapter 18 of the DVD when Buffy is cheering at the basketball game and Grueller (now a vampire) shows up we see him growling at a player from the other team. The player then tells him "Here, take it" and hands him the ball. The player from the other team (in the red) is Ben Affleck, pre-stardom.
Trivia: Because of changes to the script Joss Whedon was forced to make by the studio, he doesn't consider the film canon as established by the TV series. The studio made Whedon trim out many of the film's darker moments, in addition to a quite a few of the jokes he had written. And they also forced him to completely rewrite the climax, which originally ended with Buffy burning down the school's gym to kill the remaining vampires.Cubs Fan
Trivia: Joss Whedon's original script, which was drastically altered by the studio, director and cast, was eventually adapted into a comic-book called "The Origin" in 1999. Whedon has said that while he has some small issues with the comic, he thinks it can be viewed as being canonical with the series, unlike the movie.TedStixon
