An "A" in history would make her valedictorian and het her a scholarship to Harvard. When she turns in her history project, a 365 day diary of a girl accused in the salem witch trials, a 6 month effortful piece of work, she receives a "C" from history teacher Mrs. Tingle, the meanest teacher at Grandsboro High. This gives an opportunity for Marybeth Carter (Liz Stauber), a rival student, to achieve an "A" and become valedictorian. As Leigh Ann tries to catch up doing extra credit by setting up graduation seating with her best friend, Jo Lynn (Marisa Coughlan), history class failure Luke Churner (Barry Watson), enters with Mrs. Tingle's final exam cheat sheet. Leigh Ann is caught with it and Mrs. Tingle threatens to tell the Principal (Michael McKean) about it. The result would have been expulsion, so the trio of teenagers attempt to regain Leigh Ann's innocence by reasoning with Mrs. Tingle. When their attempt fails, they attack Mrs. Tingle and tie her to her bed. Is there a possible way to prove Leigh Ann innocent? Summary written by William {teachingtingle@hotmail.com}
Comment: TEACHING MRS. TINGLE is a really dark comedy. It is so dark that at first I thought that it was directed by John Waters. I later found out that it wasn't directed by John Waters, but by Kevin Williamson. Kevin Williamson has written and directed a movie that is almost as dark and funny as a John Waters movie. The characters are strange and the plot is kind of confusing, but that is what I like about this movie. It's strange. It may be a little too strange for some people, but it was perfect for me.
