The Faculty

Josh Hartnett discovers that his drug (which is actually made mostly of caffeine pills) kills the alien since they seem to be water based. Clea DuVall believes that if you find and kill the head alien, everyone will be okay. Turns out that MaryBeth is the head alien. Casey kills her, Casey and Delilah hook up, so do Clea DuVall and Shawn Hatosy, Josh Hartnett joins the football team and everything else goes back to normal.

Continuity mistake: When Casey is walking up to the school after his father drove him there, we see that Casey's bagstrap is backwards. Then they cut to the car, and when they cut back to Casey and all of a sudden, his bagstrap is turned the right way. The next cut is when coach Willis and Casey's father look at Casey and then Casey starts to walk up to the school again and his bagstrap is turned backwards again.

Trivia: The film's cover of "Another Brick in the Wall" (Parts 1 and 2) were performed by a band called "Class of '99." The band was a super-group made up of members from prominent 80's and 90's rock bands. (Including members of Alice in Chains, Rage Against the Machine, and Jane's Addiction.) The band was formed exclusively to record the covers for the soundtrack, and disbanded immediately after the film's release.

Question: Why are the aliens in that town? If they come from a oceanic planet then why not go directly into one of our five or so oceans?

Rob245

Answer: The aliens needed fresh water. All the infected were drinking bottled water. When the gang were examining the slug in the garage, it dried up and died from salt, like a snail.

Answer: Whales and dolphins also lack manipulating appendages and the ability to survive on land.

LorgSkyegon

Answer: The aliens need to infect intelligent life to thrive. There is no intelligent life in our oceans.

BaconIsMyBFF

That is not exactly true. Whales and dolphins are considerably intelligent, arguably near human-level, and live in complex social groups.

Answer: Well if they need to stay hydrated whales and dolphins make more sense than inhabiting people.

Rob245

Dolphins and whales are also far less numerous. With populations numbering fewer than 10 million total across all species versus nearly 6 billion at the time for humanity.

LorgSkyegon

Answer: It could be the salt or pollution. The aliens were drinking nothing but pure bottled water.

Good answer. Dang all you guys on this site are pretty good at this. I enjoy these answers you give since hardly anybody ever listens to me.
