Raunchy and vulgar but hilarious!

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 teacher, the perky Ms. Amy Squirrel solidly portrayed by Lucy Punch.
While Elizabeth is attracted to Scott, a gym teacher named Russell, played by Jason Segel, is also vying for Elizabeth's affections only to repeatedly be turned down.
Our main character is not intended to be a nice person/teacher dropping F-bombs, showing movies in class, smoking pot, embezzling school fundraising money, etc but the movie manages to walk the fine line between comedy and the "not so funny" stuff with style. If you enjoy raunchy humor just for shock value's sake this might be for you.
It would be intriguing to see a sequel featuring Lucy Punch bringing her own 'brand of zany energy to the disadvantaged students of Malcolm X High'.
