Netflix Instant Review — 976-evil

Sometimes hitting the multiplex just isn’t in the cards. That’s when Netflix steps in to provide a movie fix. But how to separate the wheat from the chaff? I’m happy to help; every week I’ll pick a flick from the Netflix Watch Instantly section and see if it’s worth your time. This week? “976-evil”.

Since this work week ends on a Friday the 13th, what better way to go than with something scary? Sadly, 976-evil is more confusing than creepy.

No thanks to Netflix though; their Watch Instantly stream has been crashing all week long. So instead, I headed over to Crackle – another movie streaming “channel” that is available on just about any system/tv that can stream Netflix – and stumbled onto this little gem.

70s Rewind: The Parallax View

Weirder, wilder, and more unruly than I remember, The Parallax View (1974), remains a deeply paranoid conspiracy drama. Directed by Alan J.

Las Vegas -- As big-screen teachers go, Cameron Diaz will not be joining, say, Sidney Poitier or Sandy Dennis as inspiring role models to her classroom kids.

The title of Diaz's school comedy pretty much sums up her character: "Bad Teacher."

Diaz's Elizabeth Halsey is a cussing, conniving, boozing, even skanky schoolmarm who calls her students morons as she hurls their test papers at them, dresses like a stripper for a class car wash and has only one educational goal: to get her hooks into a rich substitute teacher. He's played by Diaz's real-life ex, Justin Timberlake.

"Bad Teacher" arrives just in time for summer vacation, debuting in theaters June 24.

Diaz, who stopped by theater owners' CinemaCon convention Wednesday in Las Vegas to collect an award as female star of the year, described her character's life as "one big F-bomb."

"This woman is so wrong but so right," Diaz, 38, said in an interview.
