* TeensAreMonsters: Even sociopathic, it seems.

* CriticalResearchFailure: The fake diary that the main character worked on for several months mentions witch burnings in Salem. Not a single witch was burned during the Salem Witch Trials, they were hung [[note]]with the only exception being Giles Corey, who was crushed to death with rocks [[/note]]. What makes it worse is that the audience is supposed to see Mrs. Tingle as a horrid person for only giving the main character a C for something she worked so hard on, but considering she made such a big and easily rectified mistake, the whole film falls apart.

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Ms. Tingle, who was only doing her job, and Trudy Tucker, [[AcademicAlphaBitch who despite her snotty attitude]], actually did the research for her project.

* DesignatedHero and DesignatedVillain, both of which are UpToEleven:

to:

* DesignatedHero / DesignatedVillain: UpToEleven. On the "hero" side of the spectrum, you have 3 teens who decide to cheat on a test, and DesignatedVillain, both of which are UpToEleven: caught by the "villain." They then go over to her house, break in, kidnap her, knock her unconscious (albeit unintentionally), tie her to her bed, attempt to blackmail her by taking staged incriminating photos of her committing adultery, and finally changing one of their grades from a well deserved C to an A+, and another girl's well deserved A to a B. On the "villain" side, she insults some people, admits she resents all her students, and is cold and distant.

* RootingForTheEmpire: It is very easy to find yourself rooting for the supposed villain of the film, Mrs. Tingle, who is probably the most sympathetic character in the entire film.



* TeensAreMonsters:

to:

* TeensAreMonsters:TeensAreMonsters: Even sociopathic, it seems.
* WhatAnIdiot: Once Mrs. Tingle freed herself, all she had to do was call the police and the situation would've been throughly handled. Instead, [[spoiler: she calls the school and tells the principal to come down to her house, because the cheating was apparently more important than the kidnapping, blackmail and assault and THEN tries to kill Leigh Anne, when she knows the principal is on his way.]]

Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The title character is a high school SadistTeacher who has it in for the lead character, who is just trying to become valedictorian. At the start of the film, Mrs. Tingle gives a C grade to a project she worked six months on, a historical recreation of the diary of a girl [[BurnTheWitch accused of being a witch]] during the time of the 1692 Salem Witch Trials. Except that the diary describes witch-burnings, whereas the accused witches at Salem were all ''hanged'', except for the one man who was crushed, meaning the teacher was well within her rights to mark the assignment down.

** And, as noted on the page for Designated Villain, Mrs. Tingle had ''every reason'' to believe the protagonist was cheating, making her even more sympathetic than the lead.



* TeensAreMonsters: How can you ''not'' feel sorry for Mrs. Tingle? She's a bitch but really.

** Mrs. Tingle isn't the only Designated Villain, either. Another girl in the class is demonized because...[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotHeinous she gets better grades than the protagonist?]].

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassWoobie: Mrs. Tingle. Again, it's the ''[[AntiHero kids]]'' who barge into her house and threaten her then tie her up.
