Storyline

18-year-old Sean's first summer after completing high school is much spent with 28-year-old teacher Diane, whose husband is too often motorcycle-racing instead of with her. Wacko Ralph also has "the hots" for Diane; and it doesn't help that Sean was with Ralph's younger brother, Lou, when Lou died. Written by Kim Williams <KDWms@webtv.net>

Not gonna lie, but I liked it
21 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Teacher is a very definitive example of what the 70's exploitation era of film was like. Honestly how could anyone not like the opening theme. The song was stuck in my mind for at least two weeks after viewing this. Now by today's standards this film would be a complete box office flop, if given a try to make it on the big screen.

Even though the acting wasn't the best and the story is something that we know would never happen in real life, this is still worth a watch. It is hard to determine what kind of movie this is, do you call it a comedy? Or do you call it a drama? Or is it a thriller? The Teacher is honestly a great way to view the whole experience of the 70's, in a definitive way. The story and the setting along with the plot all make for definite schlock.
