Bad Teacher (2011)

dir. Jake Kasdan

Bad Teacher stars Cameron Diaz as Elizabeth, a terrible middle school teacher who routinely ignores her class and is more focused on raising money to get herself breast implants. It’s supposed to be funny, because she’s ever such an incorrigible rascal, but it’s just infuriating. She behaves like a selfish brat, which could have been interesting were it explored with some intelligence like in, for example, Young Adult. Instead, every man in the vicinity seemingly swoons at Elizabeth’s feet, and because the movie is too afraid to delve into the realities of her entitled behaviour, it flings some sweeping redemption her way at the end. It’s a bad movie with a bad premise, bad characters and bad acting. It’s Bad Teacher.
