Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Bad Teacher is BAD
11 January 2012 | by (StarBox) – See all my reviews

Bad Teacher is a 97 minute commercial seemingly made for FMP's and shoe fetish enthusiasts combined with bad writing, bad humor, bad actor chemistry, and bad everything. While there are a few gag induced laughs from Officer Dangles character, and a high voiced Justin Timberlake, for the most part I could imagine most 13 year olds shaking their heads at how stupid the humor in this movie was.

Additionally, Cameron Diaz's face has been stretched to it's limits and taken a page out of the film, "Brazil's", facial reconditioning methods. This alone made it hard to believe she was a twenty something year old teacher suffering dearly from lack of funds to buy more heels.
