About the Movie

Billy Bob Thornton, Seann William Scott, and Susan Sarandon star in the outrageous comedy Mr. Woodcock. John Farley (Scott) is a self-help author who returns to his hometown only to discover that his mother (Sarandon) has fallen in love with his old high school nemesis, Mr. Woodcock (Thornton) the gruff, no-nonsense gym teacher who put him through years of mental and physical humiliation. Determined to prevent history from repeating itself, John sets out to stop his mother from marrying the man who made life miserable for him and his classmates. Mr. Woodcock also features a strong supporting cast including Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live) and Ethan Suplee (My Name Is Earl). The film is directed by Craig Gillespie, produced by Bob Cooper and David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers), and written by Michael Carnes and Josh Gilbert.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Between Mr. Thornton's wry performance and Tami Reiker's nuanced wide-screen photography, you half-expect Woodcock to deliver more than formulaic laughs. – Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: This may be the most laugh-free comedy of the year. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 13, 2007

Rotten: You can guess how it all ends, but getting there is a repetitious parade of put-downs and smackdowns that suggest you can't go home again. – Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: This movie makes a much better case study for aspiring entertainment executives than it does a cinematic experience. What it most emphatically is not is a date movie. – Susan Walker, Toronto Star, Sep 15, 2007

Love it

This movie is hilarious!!

Billy Bob at his best

A fun romp --- Billy Bob reprising the role he's played so well in Bad Santa and other movies, the endlessly grouchy, slighlty dangerous guy who makes life miserable for those around him. Same-old, same-old, but I never get tired of it.


That movie sucked
