hopeless West Coast homer

Has any movie ever had 3 different titles? Known alternately as "All I Wanna Do," "Strike!" or "The Hairy Bird," released in 1998. I don't think it got much publicity. I don't even remember any marketing for it. I saw it some time in the mid 2000s according to my Netflix account, but I remember nothing about it. Watched it again last night. That was a lot of fun. Set at an all girls prep school in the Northeast during the 60s. Good cast. Gabby Hoffman is a newcomer, eventually falls in w/ the rebels/misfits--Kirsten Dunst, Monica Keena, Merrit Wever and Heather Matarrazo. Lynn Redgrave is the headmistress. Rachael Leigh Cook is a prissy hall monitor type who lets a little authority go to her head...and also happens to be the daughter of the president of the board of trustees. There are some trouble making townie boys, a visiting choir from a boys school, and a conspiracy discovered about halfway thru the movie. Some good laughs along with female empowerment message.
