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>

Goofs

Grading the students' papers, Miss Halsey marks Tristan's essay test as "Stupid point Misspelled" circling the word "layer" (which is lawyer without a W). However, she misses the more obviously misspelled word "lawer" (lawyer without a Y), and overlooks the use of "whose" instead of "who's". See more »

User Reviews

As far as raunchy comedies go, it works pretty well
23 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While it's not an excellent film, it has it's moments. Cameron Diaz plays a wonderful rendition of an attractive woman who gets a job as a teacher but doesn't take it seriously until she hears about the prize money for a state test, money she plans to use for a breast enlargement. Much of the humor comes from the students being aroused by this woman and the trouble this causes to the school, which is all played well, but genuinely funny moments tend to be lacking here and there. The whole film it's share of adult humor, from nudity to drug use. One scene even involves the main character suducing a man to further her own agenda. Aside from dirty moments like this, there is also a small bit of heart from Timberlake and the children. These touching moments provide some relief from the overall raunchy tone of the film, but also tend to be quite short. Overall, it's good for a rental if you want a mildly funny yet dirty film.
