Blue's real name is Joseph (Jay) "Blue" Pulaski. The Toronto Blue Jays have a minor league team named the Pulaski Blue Jays.
During the scene for school spirit, Frank fails to leap through a ring of fire and his mascot costume catches fire. In the locker room in the next scene his entire body is red from burns. In the next scene, his burns have completely disappeared.
I wasn't looking for a girl like that.
Well, Columbus wasn't looking for America, my man, but that turned out to be pretty okay for everyone.
Why anyone would not like this movie is beyond me
This has to be one of the funniest movies ever made. I laughed so hard
during this movie. I've heard a lot of bad reviews for this movie, and
I can't believe what some people have said. Apparently some copies of
this movie were taped over with that godawful Jennifer Aniston debacle
"Picture Perfect", because that is the only explanation that I have for
the people who have said those things. Seriously, Old School has some
of the funniest scenes in movie history…and I've seen a LOT of
movies. Mandatory for all movie fans to see. One of the greatest movies
ever created! If you haven't seen this movie yet, go get it NOW! Buy
it, rent it, borrow it, steal it, whatever, just see it somehow. 10/10
