Cameron Diaz stars in the title role as Elizabeth Halsey, a middle school teacher who really doesn't care about how her students do in school. After being dumped by her rich fiancé she is forced to return to her teaching gig. She comes up with the brilliant idea of saving enough money to get a boob job in order to get another rich boyfriend. She really doesn't care how far she has to go to get the cash either. Elizabeth is not in touch with reality here as her breasts were not the problem with the first break up rather it was her letting her rich boyfriend know how bad she is spending his dough before the pre-nup.
She sets her eye of on Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake), a substitute teacher whose parents are immensely wealthy but Ms. Halsey's rival for his affections is fellow …

Seeing where this movie’s tag line is: ‘She doesn’t give an F’, I’m thinking the folks who put this sorry piece of entertainment together won’t mind if the audience doesn’t either. Director, Jake Kasdan (‘Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story’), fails miserably with what could have been a bonanza of material for laughs. I was expecting something approaching the likes of ‘Superbad’ or ‘Bad News Bears’. I suppose some of the blame can also be laid on writers Gene Stupnitsky (‘The Office’, ‘Year One’) and Lee Eisenberg (‘The Office’), who only manage to wring out a few genuine laughs during the 92 minutes of this disappointing effort.
The story gives us Cameron Diaz as the ultimate slacker-teacher, Elizabeth Halsey. Interested in only rich men and a good …

Now i really did like this movie.it was funny and entertaining.the thing is that the film is too fast,doesn't take time for the characters.to me i look at this movie as a bunch of mishief going on,with the Bad Teacher,played by Cameron Diaz happening to be involved or the causer of them.the film could have been better,way better.as i watched this film,i felt they really did rush with the screenplay,thinking they would make a quick buck quick,now yeah the film grossed over $200,000.000 so yeah it sure was a big hit,but not with the moviegoers.to me the film could have used better jokes,as i felt some where just plain stupid and some didn't even seem to fit the film.but the film was still pretty funny,not a bad film,but not a good one either.it's an okay film.the reason why I give it a …

Elisabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) has been dumped by her rich fiancé and tries to teach again. She meets a geeky substitute teacher named Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake). He eventually falls in love with Elisabeth’s fierce competent rival Amy Squirrel (Lucy Punch). Russell Gettis (Jason Segel) finds ways to ask the popular teacher out but to no avail. Halsey has plans on having a boob job for P10,000 so she finds way to come-up with the money. Cameron Diaz plays it well as a wicked lazy teacher who just passes time while Lucy Punch’s performance was noteworthy. The kids with a few lines did a delightful job with the racy lines, which I'm sure they had a blast getting away with it. The soundtrack and camera direction was effective while the screenplay was good enough to …

A decent comedy that had me a bit surprised. Some how this is the funniest movie of the year so far for me. Cameron Diaz does an awesome job for the role. She is believable. Jason and Segel is really funny as always and provides good balance for Diaz. JT is kind of funny but does a good job at acting. I am impressed with his skilz on screen, which is important for him considering he has not released a single in years.
The story is somewhat original, or at least it is not something I have seen recently. Too many times, these comedies turn into a rom com, but this one does not. I liked the story for what it was. It was a bit daring at times and really took teacher comedy to a new limit. Thankfully it was rated R.
I am a hug Cameron Diaz fan. I think that as time goes on she will …
