During the casting process, the film makers went to different New England private schools, mostly in Massachusetts, looking for a student to play Max Fisher. (more) Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In the first close-up shot, the box with the "Perfect Attendance" and "Punctuality Award" pins appear from left to right. But when Max reads out the names of the pins (in the same order as above), he points at them from right to left. (more) Quotes: Herman Blume
: You guys have it real easy. I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and your going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you. (more) Awards:
