Bad Teacher is hardly a perfect picture, but in the context of every other comedy on the summer movie landscape - from the faux empowerment of "Bridesmaids" to the neurotic frat-guy heteromania of "The Hangover Part II" - it feels revolutionary.
75
The fact that there are so many good comic bits here allowed Kasdan to assemble a great comic cast.
75
Brazenly funny in its own right - until it turns into a goody two-shoes.
63
A raunchy comedy that's funnier to think about than to watch.
60
For all her desk-stashed booze and inappropriately tight skirts, the movie offers Diaz a pretty bland badness.
50
We're just watching a film try to pass off misanthropic blunt-wittedness as "edge."
50
Bad Teacher keeps running away from its combustibly nasty premise. Damn shame.
50
A frustrating mix of smart flash and smirking impudence.
40
Barely makes the grade in either humor or provocation.
38
Misanthropic to the extreme, Bad Teacher fails across the board.
25
Most of the cast doesn't know what to do with their shallow characterizations and lackluster dialogue. The best lines were harvested for the trailer - so if you've seen that, you've seen it all.
10
How much do I loathe this film? A lottico is putting it mildico.
