Continuity mistake: When TJ jumps in the dumpster at the school to hide from the guys in suits, he sees two guys and another who's dressed up like Principal Prickly in his normal shabby suit, but then a second later when he takes off his Prickly mask he's in a black suit.
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."
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".
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.
TJ: Hey, watch it! I've got a black belt in origami.
Mrs. Finster: Hey, teacher! Leave them kids alone.
