'''''Recess: School's Out''''' (or '''''Recess: The Movie''''' in certain countries) is a 2001 animated film of the popular Disney animated series ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' (released at the end of the fifth season), produced by [=DisneyToon=] Studios. It was the fourth movie based off a Disney television series to be released theatrically, the second (and most successful) movie based on a OneSaturdayMorning show, and the final One Saturday Morning based movie of the '90s lineup (''Teacher's Pet'' would be the last movie from the block altogether, unless one show makes a revival of some sort). The movie began production in 1998 (during the show's ''second'' season, which pretty much explains how popular it was) and was finished in 2000.

* VillainHasAPoint: Benedict wants to get rid of summer vacation: ''Boo!'' He wants to get rid of summer vacation by moving the moon and disrupting the Earth's weather patterns: '''Boo!''' He wants to do it because he's angry at how American kids are falling behind their international peers in academic tests: '''B'''-- Wait. That... is actually a legitimate concern. [[note]]To the movie's credit, the kids do point out that Japan and Tierra Del Fuego, which ''have'' summer vacations, boast some of the highest test scores, but it's still hard to fault the guy's motive, even if methods and logic are pants-on-head insane.[[/note]]

* BodyDouble: Although not willingly done by Prickly: Shortly after Prickly was teleported inside the school [[spoiler:and imprisoned by Benedict's goons]], Prickly apparently left the school when TJ was trying to convince his friends that he was being genuinely honest about something up with the school (they found documents that they initially indicated that the staff were simply people restocking the supply room, to his friends anger), although after they witnessed the weather altering laser in action, they then assumed that Prickly was behind the whole thing. It wasn't until TJ did some more sleuthing the next morning where he stumbled upon Prickly's golf pants that the truth became even more insidious: [[spoiler:The "Prickly" that they earlier witnessed was actually the ugly bald guy incognito, presumably to keep the other people in the dark about what's really going on at the school, and the ''real'' Prickly was being held hostage.]]

* ButtMonkey: Averted by Randall, who normally is during the series. In fact, he has a lot to report to Ms. Finster on the last day of school, doesn't suffer any AmusingInjuries, and is the AccidentalHero when [[spoiler:his snitching leads to him and Ms. Finster discovering the plot to cancel recess soon after TJ and his friends do.]]



* DidntThinkThisThrough: Phil didn't consider that by [[spoiler:cancelling recess as a principal he'd be putting his girlfriend Muriel, a recess referee, out of a job. Unsurprisingly, she dumps him because of this.]]



* LoveCannotOvercome: Ms. Finster [[spoiler:dumped Benedict when he decided to get rid of recess. He didn't consider that by cancelling it he would be putting her out of a job.]]
* MamaBear: Ms. Finster [[spoiler:takes on the bald guy when the latter goes after TJ.]]



* SingleTargetSexuality: Even after 30 years, Benedict still carries a torch for Miss Finster, not even caring [[IWasQuiteALooker how much she changed with age]]. Also, one of the reasons why he holds such a grudge agains Prickly is because he revealing his recess ban back in the '60, destroyed his relationship with Muriel, the only woman he ever loved.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Double-subverted with Randall and Ms. Finster. Randall, bored out of his mind, spies on TJ and the kids and reports to Ms. Finster when he tells her that they're going to "break into the school" during the summer. Ms. Finster decides to go and stop them, but they both miss most of the action that the gang encounters. [[spoiler:After the police laugh at Ms. Finster when she reports the ninjas, she rallies the teachers as an army to stop Benedict, having realized what he was doing. If she hadn't done that, Benedict would have enacted his plan.]]

* TookALevelInJerkass: Principal Prickly reveals that he and Ms. Finster used to be more idealistic in the 1960s, when they had just started their jobs. Understandably, forty to fifty years of handling bureaucracy and a round of children like T.J. and his friends made them embittered. Prickly thanks TJ at the end of the movie for reminding him why he went into teaching at the first place.
* UngratefulBastard: Completely subverted at the end of the movie. TJ [[spoiler:returns Becky's diary since she saved him and summer vacation by rallying all the kids in summer camp and thanks Prickly for helping him stop Benedict]].

* WeUsedToBeFriends: [[spoiler:Prickley and Benedict went to high school together and were even a part of the school board. However, after Benedict decided to remove recess altogether and after Prickley replaced him as principal, their friendship ended.
