This is a raunchy, filthy and funny comedy starring Cameron Diaz as an acid-tongued middle school teacher and Justin Timberlake. She stars as Elizabeth, a middle school teacher trying to marry somebody rich. She is about boobs and a man. She decides that landing a rich husband is her only route to happiness and the only way to achieve this is with a breast enlargement. The main driving force of the plot is her quest to raise funds for a larger breast.
The movie starts as Elizabeth is finishing a school term of what she taught would be her last school term as a teacher; she is marrying a rich guy. The wedding didn’t go through; the fiance got wise to her gold digging motives. She went back to teaching where she met Scott (Justin Timberlake). She taught all she needed to marry a rich guy like Scott is to have a boob job. The operation costs $10,000 and getting the money became an obsession. She tried to raise money for the procedure like soaping up at the school’s fundraising car wash. The bulk of the movie revolves around her attempts to raise the money for the procedure.
Elizabeth and fellow teacher Lucy Amy became rivals for Scott’s attention which led to a lot of plotting and back-stabbing on both sides.
The movie is funny because of the f-bombs that are coming from an unexpected source, in this case a teacher. It is funny but it will not make you roll on the aisles. This movie is classless and not worth the money. This is a not-very-good dark comedy. Although she is funny in There’s Something about Mary, Cameron Diaz is not that funny is this movie and I don’t think she is equipped to carry a movie like this. The movie has some good moments but they are too few and far between.
Overall, Bad Teacher is a bad movie. It is classless and it deserves a D. It has a very thin plot and also preposterous. It is a dark comedy but not as good as Bad Santa.
