I still remember the meanest teacher I've ever had back in High School. That short guy always punished the students for little or no reason at all and unfortunately we just had to deal with it (doing pushups with your knuckles is not fun at all). I'm sure that most of us can relate to these unpleasant--and sometimes even painful--memories from childhood. Mr. Woodcock is a movie about that teacher that you loved to hate. Not only made poor John miserable as a boy, but he is coming back to date his mom. This is without a doubt, one of the funniest films of the year (unfortunately not many critics believe this statement). It follows the Meet the Parents formula with situational jokes and great performances by Billy Bob Thornton and Seann William Scott who together are dynamite and perfectly suitable for their roles.

Brief Intro Story:
John Farley (Seann William Scott) is a junior high kid who is constantly suffering humiliation by his gym teacher Mr. Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton). Little John is not the only victim here, but all of the kids from his class suffer by the same demeaning punishment.

Thirteen years has passed and now Farley is a successful writer who has a best selling book called "Letting Go, How to get past your past"--inspired by his childhood memories. As he is traveling around the country promoting his book with his agent Maggie Hoffman (Amy Poehler), he finds out that he just got an award from his hometown. It will be a great opportunity to say hello to his dear mother Beverly (Susan Sarandon) who lives alone--unfortunately John lost his father years ago.

As he gets home to say hello to his mom, he finds found that she is dating no other than his number one nemesis Mr. Woodcock.

The humor in this movie ranges from G to PG-13 material. It can make even the biggest cynic laugh.
Also great cast and a story-line that is fresh, yet feels familiar and relatable. I recomend this movie to anyone looking for a cost effective movie experience. With sidesplitting laughs.

If you review a Blu-Ray movie, please describe the audio/video quality.

The video was very good. Not excellent for some reason, and I don't know why. My eyes could have just been tired, but the video did not look perfect. I would give it a "nine" on a scale from one to ten, with ten being perfect.

The audio was "DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio", and I don't know why. I remember only hearing sound from the surrounds once. There may have been more that I don't remember, but there wasn't much surround sound, so I don't know why they used 7.1. I do have a modern 7.1 system.

The movie itself was okay, but not great.

Another good Billy Bob Thornton movie if you are a fan. He is again playing a gruff man, only this time he is a Physical Ed. Teacher in love with an x students mother, and guess what, the x student doesn't like him for all he was put through when he was in Woodcocks class. All and all another good Billy Bob movie though.

Everyone has probably met a "Mr. Woodcock" in their lives, and it will definitely affect the way you interpret or appreciate this film. Undoubtedly funny in its unyielding approach to raunchy slapstick humor, Mr. Woodcock keeps a consistently lighthearted tone even through to the unlikely conclusion, which helps prevent swaying mindsets and perspectives about these comical characters. Sacrificing meaningfulness for snappy, highly quotable one-liners, the winning combination of uncompassionate Billy Bob Thornton and sprightly Sean William Scott is plenty fulfilling.

John Farley (Seann William Scott) has become a fairly well-known author for his acclaimed self-help book and decides to visit his mother, Beverly (Susan Surandon), in his hometown when he learns they wish to present him with a highly prestigious award. Once there he is shocked to discover that his hellishly strict and abusively domineering old gym teacher, Mr. Woodcock (Billy Bob Thornton) has been seeing his mother and they are engaged to be married. Desperate to break up this nightmarish union, John throws his own proverbs of "leaving your past behind" out the window and begins a maniacal campaign to dissuade his mother's interest in Woodcock.

Several recent comedies fall into a plot trap in which the major conflict is so catastrophic that a feasible escape is too unbelievable, and therefore the conclusion is beyond the boundaries of realistic comedy. While Mr. Woodcock's premise is far from fantastical, it does successfully conclude the film satisfactorily without stretching beyond the limits of what is imagined in a sarcastic slapstick film. Nearly everything in the film is done to evoke laughs, so the steady, unfaltering tone lacking seriousness that remains even until the conclusion, is welcome indeed.

The premise of this movie set up for what could have been a funny story. It never happens. I waited and watched for something funny to happen, nothing much did. There are a couple laughs, certainly not enough to warrant buying this dud. I rented it for $1.49. It was worth about 49 cents.
