As two overbearing moms threaten to pull their son out of Nixon Middle to protest Meredith's (Ari Graynor) lax teaching methods, Joel (Ryan Hansen) discovers Ginny (Kristin Davis) holds a grudge over...
A lazy, incompetent middle school teacher who hates her job, her students, and her co-workers is forced to return to teaching to make enough money for breast implants after her wealthy fiancé dumps her.
In 1989, school is out for the summer. When Camp Stillwater's dark, ancient mythology awakens, what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn.
The show is loosely adapted from the film with Cameron Diaz who starred in the film and is now producer. The show has an all star cast with David Alan Grier as the principal. Kristin Davis shines as the history teacher who aspires to be principal. Davis plays the teacher who thinks she knows it all. Ari Graynor plays Meredith also known as the bad teacher who aspires to marry a rich guy and live a life of leisure. She also gets away with much and causes trouble. She was the popular cheerleader type of girl who the boys came too. Davis' character is her opposite. As somebody who works in the school system, there are a lot more teachers like Meredith out there. Much like the students, the teachers have cliques. Those kids don't change as adults. While I could go on and on about the school politics and the system, I won't. This is a comedy and its not bad.
