The Faculty

Factual error: Zeke is in his car trying to fight off Miss Burke and they crash into the school bus, causing an explosion. The gas tank in Zeke's car is under the trunk of his car and the gas tank to the bus is in the rear of it. Everything underneath both hoods is mechanical and nothing is combustible at the front where the impact occurs.

Continuity mistake: When you first see Delilah at the start she puts her hair behind her ears. When the camera angle changes her hair is in front of her ear again.

Plot hole: If Marybeth was able to seal her nostrils and use her extended finger to remove the cap and make nobody suspicious about her, why didn't Delilah do the same thing? She was alien, so she should've still been able to do it, same as Marybeth.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, the students gather around the fish tank in the classroom. In the close-up scene the tank is brim full (the students actually touch the water when they lean on the tank). However, in the long shot, the tank is only half full.

Other mistake: While Ms. Burke appears fine at the end despite losing her head, Jon Stewart still has the eyepatch from earlier when he should be healed too.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Coach Willis tells Casey he did some fast running and there is plenty of chasing on the field then the camera cuts to showing Casey and his father, the tip of a boom mic is visible at the top of the screen. (00:34:00)

Coach Willis: You're not much into sports.
Casey: I don't think that a person should run unless he's being chased.
Coach Willis: "Being chased." I like that.

Trivia: "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" co-star Charisma Carpenter was approached for the role of head cheerleader Delilah. Carpenter turned down the role, feeling it was too similar to her "mean-girl" "Buffy" character Cordelia.

Question: In the scene where the main characters are talking about their peculiar behaviours i.e.- "Stokely, since when did you start liking boys" and "What, Delilah, you haven't gone without hairspray and contacts since birth". Can anyone please tell me what Delilah means when she says to Casey- "And Casey, since when did you become Sigourney Weaver?" I have never understood what it means but I think it might have some reference to the movie "Alien".

Answer: That's exactly right. Weaver fought aliens in all the "Alien" movies.
