Supposedly based on the 2011 comedy, you might be better off renting the movie instead. I didn't watch the entire episode, because it just plain sucks. I didn't hate it, it just isn't very funny. Nobody is even trying here, because even the supporting characters are just as one-dimensional as the teacher. Ari Graynor is no Cameron Diaz, and while the film also strays from reality a bit, I'll tell you it is 20 times funnier than this sorry excuse. It's also a testimony as to why we rarely see TV shows based on movies. One thing filmmakers don't seem to understand: Turning a film into a TV series is like turning an SNL skit into a movie: What works in small doses does not necessarily work in bigger ones.
