About a guy whose life didn't quite turn out how he wanted it to and wishes he could go back to high school and change it. He wakes up one day and is seventeen again and gets the chance to rewrite his life.
After discovering her boyfriend is married, Carly soon meets the wife he's been betraying. And when yet another love affair is discovered, all three women team up to plot revenge on the three-timing S.O.B.
When her wealthy fiancé breaks it off, gold digger Elizabeth Halsey returns to middle school: she's an awful teacher but wants to save for breast-implant surgery. She brightens when Scott, a new teacher, turns out to be rich, and she stops showing films and sleeping in class when told there's a bonus for the teacher whose class scores highest on the state exam. Her competition for Scott and the bonus is cheery and tightly wound Amy. Amy digs for dirt on Elizabeth who cheats her way toward Scott's bed and the money. Honesty with students seems to be her only skill. She ignores Russell, a droll gym teacher, who looks on. Will she succeed with Scott and get those new breasts? Written by
Elizabeth's sometime, sarcastically stated, catchphrase is "Seriously?!" See more »
At the beginning of the film, Elizabeth Halsey speeds backwards violently past a school bus and makes a sharp turn leaving visible tire marks on the ground. You can see tire marks on the ground before she creates them and were probably created in previous takes. See more »
This was funny in places but horrendous in the outcome, which I will write about so do not read on if you don't want to know. I have generally enjoyed Cameron Diaz's films, and am amazed that she has not had the good sense to give this a miss.
The plot has been well-explained, so I won't go into that, suffice it to say that the message of this film is that you can be bone idle, without ethics, cheat (mostly children), be foul-mouthed in front of children, steal test papers for financial gain, blackmail to blacken and discredit a fundamentally genuine and good person who is written as a nerd, and end up on top without consequences, happier, and retaining the money fraudulently obtained. I know it's only a film, but I am the sort of person who does not want to get to the end of a so-called comedy just to find that the message is that crime does pay. And what Cameron's character is written to do is criminal, not just larking about and high-jinks. Where would you find a school that would tolerate a foul-mouthed teacher anyway? Not good.
