A spelling bee loser sets out to exact revenge by finding a loophole and attempting to win as an adult.
Steve Witting plays the spelling bee proctor. He portrayed Jason Bateman's friend in "The Hogan Family".
Hey, Moms, let's break out the rubber pillowcases tonight. Little p**cks, you're gonna be countin' tears, not sheep.
The only accepted format in a spelling bee is for a contestant to repeat their word, spell it, and announce it again. But when Guy Trilby is called in round 2 to spell Floccinaucinihilipilification, he simply spells the word and, once told he is correct, exits the podium and returns to his seat. In fact, this happens more than once in the film.
