New this Week: ‘Bad Teacher,’ ‘Cars 2′ and ‘The Island (Bd)’

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

Bad TeacherCameron Diaz, Jason Segel, Justin Timberlake

A Better Life - Demián Bichir, José Julián, Eddie ‘Piolin’ Sotelo

Cars 2Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Caine

Movie of the Week

Bad Teacher

The Stars: Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, Justin Timberlake

The Plot: A comedy centered around a foul-mouthed, junior high teacher (Diaz) who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague — a move that pits her against a well-loved teacher.

The Buzz: Nope, no buzz. No competition here. Bad Teacher could (or should) be Diaz’ swan song as a sex symbol, she’s just not looking the part these days. Director Jake Kasdan does have some reputable directorial chops, most notably five episodes of Freaks and Geeks, but this looks to be just another lukewarm comedy. A weak cast and a weak premise will probably doom this film at the box office.
