PG-13 | | Action, Comedy, Thriller
Trapped in a school in which a gang of criminals has siezed control, a young troublemaker fights a cat and mouse battle from inside.
Ozzie (Vincent Kartheiser) quotes the mock-Latin phrase "non illegitimi carborundum," which Principal Maloney (Brenda Fricker) translates as "don't let the bastards grind you down." Another version of this saying, "nolite te bastardes carborundorum," is a recurring motto in The Handmaid's Tale (2017), which stars Alexis Bledel, who married Kartheiser in 2014.
The boss's daughter. Never too early to start kissing ass.
When Ozzie uses the computer in Shady Glen's computer room, the scene is reused from the start of the film. (When he's "hacking" the website.)
