In the cafeteria scene, where the geek has milk come out of his nose, it looks realistic because the actor put gelatin capsules of milk in each nostril until the capsules melted a little and burst.

The Snappy Snack Shack in the film was originally supposed to be in a 7-11, but at the last minute the 7-11 people decided against allowing their logo to be used. The producers had come up with a convenience store name that had never been used, as well as titles for the products that are discussed in the movie. The came up with "Snappy Snack Shack" "slushie" and "Turbo-Dog" which had never been used before.

"Moby Dick" (Heather Duke's favorite book) was originally supposed to be "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger. The writer was rather upset over this change (it was due to the fact that they couldn't get clearance to use it in the film.) He said that "The Catcher in the Rye fits in a lot better with the themes of being a teenager and J.D. being a psychopath."

Brad Pitt did a read through for the part of J.D. He was not chosen because he was considered "too nice" for the part.

These were considered as an ending for the film: Veronica shoots J.D. dead in the boiler room. Veronica straps the bomb to herself. Veronica blows herself up, taking the school with her. We see the schools prom in heaven, where the punch is the blue liquid draino that Heather Chandler drank and Martha Dumptruck is singing as the entertainment. This ending was dropped because the studio did not like it. They said that either the ending was changed or the film wouldn't be made.

Another rumor about the ending, is that the ending where the school actually did blow up and where all the different social types meet in heaven was the first and original ending. It went so far as to go into the pre-audience viewing stage and it was decided, according to audience reaction, that the ending was too morbid, so they shot something different at the last minute.

The original script for the movie was 400 hundred pages long and screenwriter Daniel Waters wanted the movie to be directed by Stanley Kubrick.

Veronica was originally scripted to have a cat named J.F.K.
