Lower Learning is surprisingly funny at times... it feels like one big improv skit (And the deleted scenes seem to attest to that theory, as 35+ jokes are thrown out there, and only the best 5 are used), and for this movie, it mostly works. The cast is tremendous, I didn't expect to see so many familiar faces, and most are well-known for their roles in movies like this. The stand out for me, in a field of all of these other comic actors is Monica Potter. She is relatively unknown to me, other than a few movies she has been in, and she manages to deliver some of the funniest lines as a down on her luck teacher who is going through a bad marriage. Much of the comedy of Lower Learning is based on kids "saying the darndest things", but not all of it. The plot of the story is basically Jason Biggs vs. Rob Corddry in a fight to save a struggling school. Also surprising is some of the stuff Longoria gets to do. She has a running gag as a troubled woman who inhales paint fumes, Cool whip can fumes, chews tobacco, drinks whiskey, abuses pain pills and more. When confronted about her issues, she becomes defensive and asks: "What is this Nuremberg?", "What is this Salem"? She actually had some funny lines here, I'll give her credit for that.

To be honest, I'm not even sure. Part of me wants to give it five stars for the funny bits in it - the kids cussing at the teachers and the positive lesson that the VP learned (to care for kids and all) and the sheer offensiveness of it - and then I want to give it a one star because of that very same sheer offensiveness in there. The positive reviewers are right to like it, the negative reviewers are right to hate it, so I'll give it a 50/50 rating and give it three out of five stars. I can tell you, it's probably not what you would expect.

Rob Corddry stars as Principal Harper Billings at Geraldine Ferraro Elementary. He has been embezzling money from the school district. He has run the school in a manner that would induce failure, so when the school closes down, he can pocket the money. The teachers make Cameron Diaz look like teacher of the year. Assistant principal Tom Willoman (Jason Biggs) gets wind of the plan and with the help of Eva Longoria they plan to save the school.

Some of the humor was disrespectful. The kid dragging a worn American flag across the ground, flying it at half mast, and passing gas as if to salute it, was not the type of humor I enjoyed. The teachers drinking, smoking, dropping the f-bomb in front of the kids and abusing them emotionally...okay that was funny. Will Sasso fans will agree he gave us a good performance as a moping gym teacher who allows his students to have inter-gender boxing until they brain hemorrhage.

There were a number of funny moments, but there were also scenes that didn't work (like the flag scene) which dragged the film down. For those who can't get enough of over the top children being abused scenes, this is your film.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, drinking, drug use, no sex, no nudity.

This movie is rated R and takes place at an elementary school so have that in mind while watching. It does take it to the next level and has many scenarios that you would never want to happen at your kid's elementary school, but that's what makes it so funny. Many times comedies are supposed to change it up and take it to the next level. Starring Jason Biggs, who has never had a problem being in comedies with absurd and crude qualities (ex: the american pies) delivers in this movie. Eva Longoria, is quite hilarious in this too. Yes, very attractive too but if you have seen her in Desperate Housewives you already know that she can deliver when it comes to comedy. Then you have the villain.............Rob Corddry. I'd say he steals the movie. If you haven't seen him before he's always a comedic mastermind. Hot Tub Time Machine would not have been the same without his overthetop character. And anything with kids doing something vulgar has always made me laugh.

Jason Biggs plays a failed hostage negotiator who decides to take a less stressful job as a guidance councelor at a failing elementary school being run into the ground by a crooked principal played by Rob Corddry. Eva Longoria plays a school distict auditor with a "slight" drug addiction that has been hired to determine why the little school is in trouble. For Jason, Eva was the one girl that got away that he never could forget. Laugh out loud funny.

In Lower Learning, Tom Willowman (Jason Biggs) is the vice principal of a horrid elementary school and does everything he can to stop the school from being shut down. This movie is a pure comedy. Do not watch this, expecting an amazing story or acting. I think people who grow up watching Hollywood movies, unconsciously train themselves to judge a movie based on its story. I judge comedies based on how funny they are; this film was made for laughs and I thought it was hilarious. The nature of this story is really over the top and absurd. The teachers curse at the students and the principal basically uses the students as his personal slaves. The comedic moments are based around shock-value. I personally am not a fan of shock-value humor but I really laughed at this movie because I think the jokes are a bit witty as well. I really like the absurdity of the film and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good laugh.
