Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Perversely determined to make you laugh. You're more likely to squirm, though ...
Fresh: This is a brisk comedy, with some formulaic moments made better by a top-notch cast ...
Fresh: Benefits from a brisk pace, witty banter and engaging performances, yet still fades from memory faster than a final exam on the first day of summer vacation.
Rotten: "The English Teacher" is a tragedy masquerading as a comedy and doing a disservice to both.
Julianne Moore is fabulous at the physical comedy her role calls for. The writing is crisp, and the overall production makes this a movie definitely worth watching!
Nice Nice Movie
Pleasant to sit down & enjoy a movie and have it be smart, quick-witted and realistic. Loved how they showed her judgements of people in the shot next to people; that is so true to form. Lots of us are guilty of that. This is not a deep, enthralling story so just know that going into it and you'll like it. Worth Renting
Starts out slow and stays slow, never really rising above mediocre. All actors I have liked in other movies, but this one just never comes together.
