Teaching Mrs. Tingle

Corrected entry: In the scene where Leigh Ann is presenting her report, she says something about witches being burned in Salem. No witches were ever burned in Salem, they were hanged. (00:11:50)

Correction: A character mistake, and a very common one at that. Besides, Mrs Tingle fails Lee Anne on her report - perhaps that's why?

Corrected entry: At one point, Jo Lynn isn't talking to Leigh Ann because she slept with Luke, but when Mrs. Tingle is on the loose, Jo Lynn helps Leigh Ann take Mrs. Tingle down. When exactly did she forgive Leigh Ann? (01:21:30)

Correction: Jo Lynn forgives Leigh Ann off-screen - much of her anger that we saw on screen was her acting that way to try and trick Mrs. Tingle. She even says to Mrs. Tingle later "Don't tell me I can't act", or words to that effect. They deliberately don't show us the scene where they make up so that we find out with Mrs. Tingle that it's all been a ruse.


Corrected entry: At one point of the film, when Leigh Ann is confronting with Mrs. Tingle about why she's so mean, Mrs. Tingle mentions that she has lived in that American town since she was born. Why then, does she have a British accent?

Correction: Her parents could have been British, hence the British accent. She didn't actually have to live in Britain to have a British accent.

Corrected entry: When Mrs. Tingle accidentally shoots Trudy with the arrow, you can see her breathing and moving. (01:24:55)

Correction: Trudy isn't shot dead (because of her book), so why wouldn't she breathe and move?

Plot hole: Mrs. Tingle was tied to bed for longer time, fed by her students, but what about going to toilet within this period?

Leigh Ann Watson: It's completely factual, she was burned at the stake.
Mrs. Tingle: Always the victim, aren't we, Ms. Watson?
Leigh Ann Watson: Well there are certain similarities between society today and seventeenth century Salem. I guess that would be the irony of it all.
Mrs. Tingle: Irony is the opposite of what is or might be expected. For example, if Ms. Watson was expecting an A on her history project, she might find the actual result to be rather ironic.
