About the Movie
Some teachers just don't give an F. For example, there's Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz). She's foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate. She drinks, she gets high, and she can't wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she's dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch). When Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A frustrating mix of smart flash and smirking impudence.
Fresh: There are plenty of quality gags seeping through from the margins.
Rotten: If you can see past the dismal sexual politics of "Bad Teacher," which I couldn't, you might applaud the gall of a film that expends so little effort in forcing us to like its central character.
Fresh: The film is fast and often funny. And while it's not for children - really - I bet the adults who just spent a school year with them are going to love it.
The movie had some pretty funny moments, but I guess I just felt too annoyed b all of the characters and got tired of all the sex in it. Sorry.
Well, I have only two things to say: typical Cameron Diaz and I rather live in a world where Justin Timberlake is not an actor.
Pretty Good, Not the Best
The trailer for Bad Teacher is great, but the movie doesn't live up to it as much. Yes, it has laughs here and there, but it's not enough to make you burst-out laughing and fall on the floor. The ending is a little predictable, too, so don't watch it thinking there's a huge surprise at the end. I think school teachers will love this movie, but if you think movies like The Hangover, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and/or Paul are funny, you might be disappointed by this movie. But it's worth the watch to have a little laugh.
