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>

Garbage, Waste of time, Save your money
10 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Instead of calling it "Bad Teacher", it should have been called "Diaz and Timberlake - our careers are over". This show is a tribute to two actors who have reached a new low in the industry and have traded they names for money.

The TV trailers are absolutely misleading and may be the most creative aspect of this production. Be warned it is not appropriate for teenagers and the ratings industry should be questioned for their thinking.

Will never go to another movie starring Diaz. In the show she does drugs and you will need them to ease the pain of having paid to see this garbage. If there is any justice, viewers will vote against her ever getting another role in Hollywood.

The only good thing about the experience was being able to write this review and hopefully warn other people not to waste their time or money
