Storyline

New York substitute science teacher/stand-up comic Richard Martinez - who isn't even remotely effective at either - finally lands a full-time position in Texas through the Teaching Ambassador Program, but his stint falls short when it's discovered he's gay. With only one friendly local behind him, Richard returns to the school as sassy Bianca Del Rio, an outspoken teacher who'll put the unruly students and hypocritical school staff in their proper places, instantly becoming the best teacher he's ever been and the school has ever seen.

Goofs

In the first classroom scene with Ms. Bianca, when Deborah asks Bianca to step outside, the sound effect of the box of chocolates being grabbed (and chocolates rattling inside) plays twice within a few seconds. The second time it plays it fits the visual (the first time it plays it is clearly out of place / matches no visual). See more »

You will mostly hear biased opinions on this film
4 December 2017 | by megarudaSee all my reviews

Technically speaking, the movie is amateurish, it is mostly noticeable at the start of the film, Alan Cumming almost feel out of context since he is a great actor, but as the movie keeps going, it simply keeps getting better and better, all the plot points tie up in the end, so the weakness of the script at the beginning as well as the film school shots, eventually turn into something good and then great, I do not know why or how this happened, but this is a film that improves as it goes just as much as its lead character. Overall it was a feel good, great movie, with a useful social commentary and with memorable supporting characters.
