Bad Teacher

Lists: Comedy, Farce

Brief Synopsis: "Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) is a lying, foulmouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate teacher. She drinks, gets high, and can't wait to marry a meal ticket to get out of her bogus day job. When she's dumped by her rich fiance, she sets her sights on a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) while shrugging off the advances of the school gym teacher (Jason Segel)."

Dan O'Neill50 - Here and there, Bad Teacher had me laughing, but not as much as I thought it would have because it goes into predictable, if not cheesy territories, and just doesnít really push the envelope when it comes to itís comedy. Still, the cast makes this a somewhat enjoyable dark comedy.
