I thought this movie was pretty funny. I usually hate Diaz films but this had the assistance of Segel and Timberlake. It was very entertaining. Timberlake's character was 1-dimensional, but funny nonetheless. Diaz and Segel had a good chemistry that wasn't shoved down our throats. Good re-watchability.

Ok this flick wasn't funny at all though i'm not saying it wasn't entertaining. Cameron Diaz wasn't bad in the title role although she is cabable of so much more! Stoeyline was ok as it keeps you not turing this off.

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.

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 …
