Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

As any kid who's ever forcibly shot milk through their nasal passages can testify, the key to a great gross joke isn't so much the content as it is the delivery. The proudly crass Bad Teacher certainly has great big gobs of greasy, grimy potential, chief among them its central performance by an exceedingly game Cameron Diaz, but it occasionally fails to nail the dismount. This film from director Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) is exactly what the title says: after getting dumped by her rich boyfriend, a lying, cheating, and perpetually boozing middle-school teacher (Diaz) hatches a scheme to con her school out of enough money to pay for cosmetic surgery, while squaring off against the aggressively cheerful teacher across the hall (a very funny Lucy Punch). Lessons are not learned, thankfully. Although the title and attitude recall the effortlessly filthy Bad Santa, Bad Teacher feels more like a spiritual sequel to Diaz's earlier Sweetest Thing, a women-can-be-gross-too comedy that spent more time congratulating itself on how far it was willing to go instead of actually going there. While Bad Teacher certainly has its number of belly laughs and worthy outrages (particularly during a hilariously awkward love scene between Diaz and a nerded-up Justin Timberlake), it's hard not to end up with a general feeling of missed opportunities. Too often, it toes the bad-taste line, when it should be jumping over it with a rocket cycle. --Andrew Wright

Product Description

Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) is a foulmouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate teacher. She drinks, gets high, and can’t wait to marry a meal ticket to get out of her bogus day job. When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her sights on a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) while shrugging off the advances of the school gym teacher (Jason Segel). The consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, coworkers, and even herself an education like no other!

4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise. June 26, 2011
Format:DVD
A reluctant teacher loses her wealthy fiancé' and thus has to return to the job she hates. Desiring breast implants, she pursues the bonus awarded to the teacher whose class has the highest test scores. Along the way she is pursed by a gym teacher, tries to connect with a rich substitute, and finds a rival in a fellow teacher, the funniest and most well-developed character in the film. This is a movie that I found funny and refreshing, in that it is not laced with vulgarities and profanity throughout. This is a movie that provides laughs while not seeking the lowest common denominator. A pleasant surprise.

I like comedies so I saw the previews for this movie once or twice and thought it looked interesting. But I never saw them again. So my grandmother told me that she thinks that this movie bombed. So I went on Amazon and I saw the reviews! YIKES!! There were more bad reviews than good reviews. But I still wanted to see it to decide hmm... is it as bad as what everyone on Amazon said it was? It turns out IT WAS EVEN WORSE!!! I mean we have this lazy, goldigging, trashy woman played by Cameron Diaz whose rich fiance dumps her, with the help of his mother, because they figure her out as a golddigger. Shes also kicked out of her fiance's house and with no where else to go and with no money to get a boob job she met a guy on Craigslist and shes currently living with him and you guessed it, GETS A JOB AS A TEACHER!!! This movie is rated R so if you're thinking of showing this to your children ages 13 and under I suggest you don't! We have Cameron Diaz dry humping a male teacher played by Justin Timberlake. And she is shown wearing provacative clothing at a car wash. WAIT FOR IT IT GETS WORSE!!! At this carwash you also see a boy having an erection when he sees his teacher in "SEXY CLOTHING" at this carwash. SPOLIER ALERTS AFTER THIS POINT-- In the end we have Cameron Diaz dump Justin Timberlake and get with the gym teacher that she basically treats like garbage through out the film AND WAIT FOR IT.... since she's no longer a teacher she works as a guidance counsler AT THE SAME SCHOOL!!! The END!!! This movie is disrespectful to teachers everywhere! But this would be a good movie to show to bad teachers so they learn WHAT NOT TO DO to be worse teachers than they already are!

Acting:F
Comedy: There was NOTHING funny about it!
Plot:F-
Movie overall A BIG FAT FAILURE!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nobody To Like October 12, 2011
Format:DVD
BAD TEACHER is a mixed bag. [Possible SPOILERS AHEAD]

It features a talented cast, particularly the always-deft Cameron Diaz, that certainly know how to play comedy, and it contains several laugh-out-loud moments, but the film is, ultimately, defeated by its very premise.

There is not one likable character in the entire film.

Diaz plays Elizabeth Halsey, a ruthless, wildly inappropriate middle school teacher who doesn't give a damn about her students or colleagues, and "teaches" by showing her class movies while she sleeps off the previous night's drunk.

Why wasn't this woman was fired months ago?

After her wealthy fiancé and his mother dump her, Elizabeth is out to snag another rich husband and she sets her sights on a new substitute teacher (Justin Timberlake) who comes from money. Unfortunately for her, Justin is more attracted to Elizabeth's chief rival (Lucy Punch), a triangle that leads to a "war" between the two women...neither of which we, as an audience, are rooting for.

Certainly there are moments in this picture that one cannot help but laugh at Elizabeth's outrageous remarks, but these awkward laughs are akin to the somewhat incredulous guffaws we give Larry David and his inappropriate actions on CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM.

Elizabeth may "soften" late in the picture, but she certainly doesn't change and nothing in the screenplay by Gene Stupnitsky & Lee Eisenberg really justifies her "winning" at the film's end.

Phyllis Smith, John Michael Higgins and Jason Segel co-star in the movie, directed by Jake Kasdan.

Extras on the DVD, which contains both the theatrical and unrated versions of the movie, include deleted scenes, outtakes and two "Behind the Scenes" featurettes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Teacher lives up to its name October 7, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I really, really wanted to like this film - even a little bit - as I paid top dollar to see it in the theater, but it was so 'bad' that I felt compelled to warn off others. "Bad Teacher" is simply one of those films that could have been better, but because it was so bad, it would be tough to know where to start fixing it.

Cameron Diaz plays a character with no depth (not surprising or even a negative for this genre of films...), no like-ability and yes, she's a bad teacher too - thus the name of the film. Supporting cast including Justin Timberlake as a cute, rich, but nerdy co-teacher, are good enough, but you keep hoping for better and never get it. The story too is so simple, it really doesn't allow any of the characters to be built into much more than sketches of ideas versus characters you want to either loathe or cheer for in the end.

One scene where Diaz's character redeems herself is cute, but the film neither offered up enough of those moments or really funny ones to make this viewer even slightly happy. I stuck it out and watched the whole thing, but while a fan of stupid comedies and the actors in the film, if this was the only choice I had for something to watch - I'd read a book.
