One Review for “Bad Teacher”

  1. Eddie Tsang says:

    “Bad Teacher” is just bad; plain and simple. However, that doesn’t matter because it is currently on its way to a one hundred million dollar box office. As of July 13, its current gross is over 82 million dollars and it is still doing more than one million dollars a day. Why? Because it is funny.
    It’s funny in some of the most irreverent and immoral ways. For one thing, there is no redeeming quality whatsoever of either the protagonist or the antagonist. Both are evil to the core and both are not good role models for teachers even though they are both portraying teachers at a middle school in the Midwest. Even the two male leads really don’t have good qualities. One is a pot smoking gym teacher and the other is a flaky rich guy.
    The students, on the whole, are not cared for or cared about by the teachers and administration in this mythical school.
    Cameron Diaz gives an acceptable performance in the leading role of the “Bad Teacher.” She is irreverent and uncaring in a pure self-indulgent role. All she cares about is raising money so that she can have a boob job to land a rich male to support her. She is very superficial and does not really care who knows about.
    The movie is stolen however by Lucy Punch who portrays the crazy, brown nosing teacher, Amy Squirrel. She is the antagonist in the movie; however, there are times when you are rooting for her to uncover the scheming plans and machinations of Cameron Diaz. You see, Cameron’s character is so bad you root for the other bad guy in this movie; at least until Ms. Squirrel goes completely over the edge.
    As an aside, there is a real missing plot point regarding Ms. Squirrel’s role in that 2008 is mentioned at least twice in the film and there is no resolution for “what happened in 2008.”
    Justin Timberlake and Jason Segal play the two male boy toys in the movie. Timberlake is really beginning to show his acting chops. Between “The Social Network” and this film, he has shown a range that may make him a leading man for years to come. In this film, he plays a rich nerd with a bit of a kinky side (everything in this film is kinky, but his character is definitely the worst). He is the center of a love triangle between Ms. Squirrel and the Diaz character. Jason Segal plays the sympathetic character but even he smokes dope on school property.
    In the end, which one of the evil bitches will win or will they both end up with their comeuppance? See the movie if you choose and you will find out.
    From a moral standpoint, this film should be condemned as it condones the use of drugs on school property by the teachers, as well as showing irreverent behavior and sexual deviants as being within the bounds of normalcy.
    It gets two stars out of five.
