Teacher of the Year - Comedy of the Year!!!
21 June 2014 | by pringleridgesSee all my reviews

Saw this film at Newport Beach Film Fest - Hilarious!!! This film about teachers is so funny but it also has a heart. Keegan-Michael Key and the Sklar Brothers are all unbelievably funny. Larry Joe Campbell, Jamie Kaler, Lahna Turner, Karl T. Wright and a bunch of other great actors all give hilarious performances. The core of the film follows Mitch Carter, who has just won California Teacher of the Year and now may have a new job that pays more money but he won't teach any longer. As Mitch, Matt Letscher really shines. He's the emotional core of a film that is wildly absurd at times but he makes it all seem real. Sunny Mabrey as his wife and newcomer Caitlin Carmichael are also wonderful as Mitch's wife and daughter. There are great performances throughout and the it's gotta be one of the funniest indie comedies I've seen in years. Check it out!!!
