A pleasant surprise.,
This review is from: Bad Teacher (Unrated Edition) (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 haven't seen it but based upon promo TV ads, I have little interest. I am sick of movies that portray sexist abuse. One ad shows Diaz's character telling students to hold a young boys arms so he cannot protect himself as she then throws a dodge ball into his groin. While this is objectionable on a number of levels, lets just take the obvious sexism. Can you imagine feminist's (justifiable) outrage if the genders were reversed? Its sexist crap and about time that men, and women start demanding an end to the sexual abuse as a laugh so pervasive in film today.

Good point about the reverse of genders. If you don't take the movie seriously, it is a decent watch. Not one of my favorite comedies, but it does avoid the foul language you so often see today.

Isn't it nice that we can choose which to watch.

Obviously you have watched the wrong movie. This movie was inundated with profanity and lots of vulgarity. I wish I could post the examples here, but I'd be thrown off Amazon. Watch the movie again for the amount of sexual act references, drug use throughout among other things. Maybe you watched an edited version of the movie? TC

I have had a couple of comments regarding my review of this film. I saw the movie in theaters, and found that it is not a profane mess like, say, Paul. Maybe this unedited version is different.

I just watched this film on a movie channel and believe me, it is QUITE vulgar. Reallly explicit nudity (examination of alleged breast implants), use of the "c" word, teachers dropping the "f" bomb on kids, etc. etc., and I could go on and on. However, that being said, it IS funny and has some redeeming qualities.

Maybe I saw a different movie than everyone else.
