Movie Review of Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz

Today's movie review is for Bad Teacher , with Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake, and it was a very funny flick! Ms Diaz plays a teacher who, at the beginning of the movie, is leaving her job as a teacher (in which she was CLEARLY uninterested) to go marry a rich man, but he kicks her to the curb, leaving her no option that to go slogging back to her teaching job.

Justin Timberlake shows up as a new teacher with old money that Cameron is dying to land, but she thinks she needs a new, much bigger set of boobs to hook him, and most of the movie is about the shenanigans that ensue as she tries to raise money for the new knockers (in case you don't remember, they were dating for a while in real life, which makes the hotel room scene even funnier).

In the meantime, she is being pursued by adorably shlubby Jason Segal (he's Marshall from How I Met Your Mother ), and she finds out that she is actually capable of helping children, even if she didn't intend to! I had heard rumors that this movie wasn't very good, but I found it quite cute, with a few VERY funny moments (especially the scenes with the principal). It's worth renting, but there is some nudity and some sexual situations, so watch with your adult friends!

I loved this movie! Hilarious! Best thing Cameron Diaz ever did. It was a riot when she sleeps in class and runs movies every day. Very, very clever comedy. The TV series was a dud.

As a teacher, I loved this movie. As a teacher, i hated this movie. I still quote it sometimes.

I didn't even know there was a TV series, so clearly it didn't make much of a splash!

If the movie focus on the role of teachers as a noble career, perhaps that will be better.
