Remember the movie “Bad Santa” with Billy Bob Thornton? That movie was hilarious and good. “Bad Teacher” on the other hand is neither. In fact it was just the opposite. Incredibly non funny and plain junk.
“Bad Teacher” stars Cameron Diaz who still has that kick ass hot body but to be honest she’s beginning to look a little weathered in the face. Diaz plays a mopey almost nasty teacher who hates her profession and is just looking for a rich guy to take her away. Of course the producers and director dress her in everything possible tight and that alone accounts for the final rating (grade) on this movie. Otherwise it’s a complete waste of time.
Justin Timberlake coming off a great performance in “The Social Network” is awkward and boring in this flick.
Did he really read this crappy script before accepting this part? And it’s unbelievable that he agreed to a scene where he is dry humping Diaz and afterwards they show a wet spot in his
pants. That scene has to qualify for one of the worst I’ve ever seen. The only redeeming thing is that a party of four in the theater was so outraged by it that the father started yelling at the screen and walked out. It was the only time I laughed during the movie.
The supporting cast in this movie stunk. The kids were all boring and nondescript. And the writing might have been done by pre-schoolers. Do you get the idea that I hated this movie? Oh yea, I did.
I really thought of giving this piece of drek zero stars, but Diaz still has that rocking body. All those workouts with Alex Rodriguez continue to pay off. So, a weak single – one star for Diaz and nothing else for Awful, I mean “Bad Teacher”
