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
At the beginning of the film, Elizabeth Halsey speeds backwards violently past a school bus and makes a sharp turn leaving visible tire marks on the ground. You can see tire marks on the ground before she creates them and were probably created in previous takes. See more »
The word "bad" may be in the title, but Bad Teacher is anything but!
It may have the word "bad" in its title, but this film is anything but. Within the first few minutes, I was laughing and I practically didn't stop the whole time. As is with some of the great R-rated comedies of the last few years (i.e. The Hangover and Knocked Up), this movie features some of the funniest writing.. making for a very raunchy but hilarious good time! I'm a pretty big fan of Cameron Diaz, anyway, so it's always fun to see her do something she hasn't really done before... and playing the foul-mouthed, junior high teacher Elizabeth Halsey was just a great casting job! While the storyline is a pretty shallow one and you won't find any moral lesson here, it is still just about everything you could wish for in a comedy. It centers around Ms. Halsey whose engagement was just broken off on the terms that she is a "gold digger." As she begins to work her charm on the new substitute teacher, though, she finds herself going head-to-head with one of the school's most well-loved teachers, Amy Squirrel.
The main cast is rounded out by the hilarious Lucy Punch, Justin Timberlake and Jason Segal, as well as a great supporting cast that includes Phyllis Smith, John Michael Higgins, Eric Stonestreet and Molly Shannon. You could not ask for a funnier ensemble! It may not have any values, but if you're looking to have some laughs and a great time at the movies.. you'll definitely want to check this movie out!
