This is one terrible movie! While there are some funny moments throughout the movie, like the trailer might suggest, it seems to make a mockery of anyone with decent values.
Somehow the most awful character (morally) is made out to be a hero, and those who are the most ethical are punished for doing the right thing. There is supposed to be some sort of love story in there, but if anyone could tell that there was any genuine 'feeling' I'd really like to know where it was.
The story/character development is absolutely abhorrent and definitely sits well below trashy reality TV in my books.
Couldn't even get through the first hour.
It was mildly amusing. Nothing special.
The best bits were in the trailer. Otherwise a poor storyline and average acting. If you are bored and dont like teachers you might get a giggle from pieces of this movie.
Possibly one of the worst films ever. Had to switch it off. Cameron Diaz has always played good comedy. But this was total garbage and really foul!
it was an okay movie... not as good as i thought it would be... funny at times and kept me interested , somewhat predictable.
Bad, stupid movie. A waste of talented actors on a very weak script. Maybe I just didn't like the characters at all. So weak!!
Absolute rubbish....Cameron Diaz is definately scrapping the bottom of the barrel taking this role.....dont waste your time
Bad film. Terrible acting all round, terrible storyline. An hour and a half of our lives we'll never get back.
A few laughs but not all that it was meant to be. Good for light entertainment.
Loved this movie! thought it was quite funny and easy to watch when you dont feel like concentrating too much.
This movie was really boring.
A couple of funny parts does not a good comedy make. Cameron Diaz doesn't have what it takes to carry an entire comedy film.
Lighthearted girlie movie.
All I can say it was so bad, that it was good. I really did have a laugh...
I got a good laugh from this film and though Justin Timberlake playing a nerdish character was funny and he pulled if off well.
Story line is really bad. How can a teacher behave and act like this for the whole year of school and no one complain? Despite all the bad things she did, the story end with her getting a guy.
Coulg have been better, but had funny moments.
very crude language
She was a teacher for all the wrong reasons, and then a desire for an increase in finances eventualy lead her into a better choice in life.. A quirkey appeal for me.
Cute, funny, rude and below average movie making - all up easy to watch, a real no brainier
Don't bother, wasn't funny it was rude in every way....however if you like this sort of thing Cameron is still a great actor.
didn't think it was very funny
Not all that good. Lacked a real hook. Not Cameron's best work either.
it was the worst movie evernot worth the disc it was printed on
This was reccommended by a friend of mine and I must must admit I was very surprised by this offering, the acting by Cameron Diaz was superb but don't be fooled by the title this is not for the younger one's "plenty of use of the "F" word and the "C" Bomb so be advised, but adults should enjoy this.
When viewing any Cameron Diaz movie I always go in with very low expectations so I was pleasantly surprised to really enjoy this movie. These are the types of movies she should be in rather than the usual mindless slop she dishes out. Great cast but Cameron is the real shiner here. Lots of laughs.
Worse than I could have imagined!!!!
Bad language was over the top.
Turned it off after 15 mins.
I really enjoyed this movie, a lot of memorable scenes and deeper meaning about growing up and changing your values.
Hehehehe what a tramp!! good fun!!
After reading the other reviews, I was going to cancel this one, but I'm glad now I didn't. I really really enjoyed this movie, but agree the language was totally bad & unnecessary, but apart from that, I got quite a few laughs out of it. Justin Timberlake was a complete waste of space tho I have to say. A good 3 and a 1/2
This entertained me. don't take too seriously.
Without a doubt, the worst movie Cameron Diaz has ever been in...not even funny///just crude....I could only watch half of it before turning it off.... I was hoping it would get better but alas, only worst!
Quite amusing but lots of uneccesary bad language.
Ok - it a movie to watch with hubby but wouldn't watch it twice
This would have to be one of the worst films that I have ever seen.
Do not bother with this rubbish.
Cringed more often than I laughed.
I'm not a prude and I don't really mind bad language in movies in it's place, but this was pretty bad! My other half and I watched it with my parents in earshot (bearing in mind we're all adults) and we were actually both really quite embarrassed. It wasn't a terrible movie, but a bit disappointing - thought it would be much funnier.
I wasn't expecting much as I had heard bad reviews, but I actually found it rather funny. Not one of Cameron Diaz's best films but still worth watching.
Sorry but it was painful. The big ohh la la actors didnt help this terrible film at all.
I wonder how far from fact this hillarious film is with the school systems today?
Quite an enjoyable comedy.
Not a bad movie. Not for prudes.
Quirky story and an unusual Diaz performance. Not really a comedy in parts just like bad santa.. a drunk pot head teacher who cons everyone and ends up...?
what was the moral?
Though it's not a bad movie and you'll find it cures the boredom blues, Diaz hold it together well.
I think I liked it... I guess :)
Well...not that great actually. A bit of fun, but overall not great
We were so very shocked we even made this choice. The title suggests a funny "bad" teacher, but she was disgraceful!!! The language, the hints at sexual areas that kids should never see so young, our child is 9 and we shut it down after 30 minutes of rubbish and fowl mouthed trrash. This is shocking that Cameron Diaz thought this would be a great movie to do. Not one person i've spoken to thought that this title would be so bad. Don't get this if you have children and if you care about what they view....even we didn't want to watch it when daughter went to bed. Disgraceful show!!!!
Funny bits, but not a great romcom. I think it was trying too hard to be edgy but it didn't really get there for me. They should've had more of Jason Segel's character.
Is Cameron Diaz getting worse as she gets older, i'll always remember her from the mask, this movie is lame as.
Not on of camerons best, although there were enough laughs to keep you interested.
My partner didn't like it, but yet I really enjoyed it! Laughed at so many parts throughout the movie. Think this one is a watch and decide for yourself if you laugh at it or think its stupid!
a few laughs but mostly BAD TEACHER - BAD TASTE!
a very poor video - not particularly funny at any time - other times a bit crude just for the sake of it - couldnt see the need for some it at some places. a wasted 90mins
Great movie. Despite the usually corny Cameron Diaz being in it, this is a real surprise. Funny, wacky and generally entertaining for both men & women.
I quite enjoyed this movie, I'm a big Cameron Diaz fan and she was really good in her role as the' bad teacher' and funny.. sure it didn't have a lot of depth - but if you're looking for some light -hearted laughs and don't mind the odd crude/rude bits its an enjoyable comedy movie.
Awful movie, predictable, bad acting, bad story, waste of any ones 90 minutes!
Seriously, is this what we call entertainment these days......I heard it was dreadful but had to see for myself. I couldn't make it through to the end cos it was soooo bad and that never happens as I always hang in there.
I really enjoyed this film. Was not expecting an oscar winning movie - (not with the likes of JT and Cameron in it anyway!) it was funny, very crass in places - a movie not to be taken seriously. Sometimes bad is good. I think worth a watch.
Whoa........bad is the operative word!! Save yourself for something better............
Really, really, really bad. The storyline was just awful and the cast looked like they were filling their time waiting for the next movie to come around. Just terrible and pointless.
Bad teacher - Bad movie. Dont even waste your time.
So much better than we expected - Cameron did a great job (she doesnt always) and the rest of the cast were great. Very enjoyable.
there are some movies that are better.
there are many movies that are worse.
Pathetic, not much of a movie. If you have nothing better to do, try it.
This movie is just bad language and bad cinema
very funny; cameron diaz was excellent; good cast; good story line @ good script
Funny movie, enjoyed it.... typical storyline though
It wasn't bad but that is to say it was not Good Either. once again a great idea, great choice of actors and a let down. School of Rock showed a better example of a Teacher whose objectives in life are to benefit themselves.
Too funi, Cameron did the role justice.. What do the real teachers think?????
While certainly not for children and although I don't like moves with a lot of swaring I did enjoy the move
Love this movie. Pretty crude in places but still good for a laugh.
Diaz struggles to "act" and is appalling like so many of her B grade movies. As a gold digger she is a natural. As an actress, she is a good gold digger who relies on her past looks and plastic "barbie doll" looks. Diaz has less class than a pole dancer and got to wonder who she blackmails and/or did to get her first role.
It will never win a movie award but it is good fun to watch. Diaz is perfect for her role as the 'gold digger' female teacher and the woman playing 'Amy Squirrel' (a Lucy Punch)? was perfect as her rival for the affections of Justin TImberlake's character. I would hate to have my kids taught by these teachers but hey, it is a comedy. Although, come to think of it, the 'Amy Squirrel' character did remind me of some Social Workers I have known. Worth renting.
Appalling B grade movie with unnecessary vulgarity and crudeness. I am by no means a prude but this was just gratuitis smut with no content and not funny. only had one light giggle throughout the entire movie. Dissapppointing as the cast would suggest that it be quite entertaining and well written. Not so
Yeah ok Cameron, give it away and sell handbags and perfume, she;s lost it.
Very funny. Although a few off colour jokes which took it down a few notches. Cameron Diaz was great as usual.
Hilarious. Sure it doesn't have a lot of depth, but if you're looking for some light low-brow laughs you've picked the right movie.
Very disappointing. Too much bad language and lacked story.
Worst movie I have seen in quite a while. An insult to the intellegance.
This movie is about a teacher who has it all, gets excited about the end of the school year, comes home to expect a marriage proposal from her wealthy catch of the year, and finds the mother in law & her no longer future husband kicking her out.
Back to her old now present job at school she has a new "don't care" attituted and her new focus is new boobs and the fastest ways to get the money to pay for them.
Its a fun story with a love story ending.
Well Cameron Diaz player her role pretty OK, but who'd had thought that substitute be in real life Justin Timberlake, nothing like his music clip look...Anyway, really Kathleen and the Gym teacher plus the little jealous gingerhead was the only thing that really gave this movie a Worth Watching rate.
Funny in places, Worth watching once for a couple of good scenes.
Not something I would rush to watch again
Rude, crude and vulgar, what I would call school boy toilet humour (boobs & willies)! ! ! How they got two star like Cameron Diaz & Justin Timberlake to be part of this trainwreck I can't imagine! ! ! A total waste of 2hrs unless you like to hear needless swearing don't bother.
Loved this movie. Especially the 'hold my ball sack' part.
great loved the whole movie!!
Absolutely ridiculous movie. Wasted 2 hours of my time
This was ok bit crude but still a little entertaining.
Incredibly bad - what was CD thinking when she accepted this role!!
Lots of fun. Good veg out movie. LOL
Glad I didn't pay to see this movie at the cinemas - very disapponting.
Not the best comedy out, but it passed the time.
Previews looked good but they were the best part of it
Not the best. Some funny parts.
Ott from start to finish. Good casting but morally bankrupt storyline.
Essential veiwing for all school teachers, not sure about the rest of the population. It made me laugh out loud.
Surely Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake do not need to ruin their acting credentials by acting in such a "bad" movie with unnecessary foul language from Cameron Diaz.
A thoroughly unlikable gold digging character who you cannot relate to. Some funny parts which were more cringe-worthy than funny overall.
Definately would not recommend.
This is a very funny movie, One for the boys as Cameron Diaz is the main character playing a very bad teacher. This one is not for the under 16 years as you will see in the first few mins due to foul language. If you need a movie for a date night and you don't like to think about the plot, also this one will keep the boys up in more ways than just staying awake.
Bad Teacher = Bad Movie!! A couple of funny moments but overall a bit too dull and boring. 1 1/2
not bad, but nothing exciting either. typical Cameron Diaz..
the story was boring and the swearing so bad we turned it off after only 15 mins.
Of all the bad movies I have seen, this was truly one of the worst ever. It did not even get a smile, let alone a laugh from us.
The attempted humour was try-hard and in poor taste. The use filthy language to try to get shock laughs didnt work and fell flat. I was disgusted at some language.
My partner sat through to the end - I couldn't, and if on my own I would have turned it off after 5 minutes - I could see exactly where it was heading. My partner agrees it was one of the worst movies he has ever seen, and he has sat through a lot of shockers.
I can't believe this even made it to dvd.
It deserves a minus star rating
I don't normally bother with writing reviews but I'm compelled to do so on this 90 minute waste of time movie. Comedy! What comedy? It did not raise one laugh out of me! Boring as hell. Did it flop at the box office? I would not be surprised. No stars from me!
Predictable and nothing special... but not disappointing either.
This was a very poor movie with unnecessary language and barely humorous plot. Base humour at its lowest point. Don't waste your time...life is too short for this load of rubbish..
Light, easy movie for chilling.
Nothing too hard to cope with, just a bit of fun.
This movie was alright. A bit of comedy and good actors.
Okay, seeing Cameron Diaz playing an unruly (4 letter s-word) may hold titillation for some, but I'm getting annoyed with this trend in Hollywood 'potty mouth' movies. I'm still shaking my head.
this has to be one of the worst movies i have ever seen. It was painful to watch Cameron Diaz portray a tart and I switched off after 5 minutes.
Disppointing and in the main unfunny and ultimately boring. There isn't enough here to sustain an hour, let alone the over 2 hours the legth of this film is. We watched Bridesmaids a few nights earlier and found it genuinely hilarious in parts. We thought we'd get something similar here. Where that was a 3.5-4 star film this is only 2 at most.
Really enjoyed this film.
Didn't enjoy it, Cameron Diaz is getting a little old to be playing this role and she's not very likeable, a bit unexpectedly rude and crude, don't waste your time!
Not deep and meaningful, just good fun and light-hearted, with some unexpected developments to keep it interesting.
I found this film unexpectedly funny! I thought the trailer looked quite average but I got quite a few laughs out of it.
Absolute crap, totally unfunny. No one could accuse Cameron Diaz of being a halfway decent actress at the best of times, but she's hit an even lower new low here. Plus, she's frankly starting to look a little "mutton dressed as lamb" in the bimbo roles she favours. Jason Segel had an air of disbelief, like he couldn't believe his agent had talked him into this. I couldn't believe it either.
Thought it would be hilarious, but the only funny bits were what was in the ad. Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlakes characters were over the top. Seems like the tried to do a teacher version of bad santa, but it just didn't work. Waste of a rental...
A few laughs but not one I would watch again. A lot of unnecessary bad language
Movie was OK, particularly on a freezing cold "summer" day. Main character was really mean and horrible - I hope kids and teens aren't influenced by this.
Not as good as I expected. A few laughs here and there. Nasty, manipulative, horrible main character.
lol funny very good movie.
Pretty bad,don't waste your time
Very funny, great watch. Shame Cameron felt the need to have all the facial work.
My least favourite Cameron Diaz film to date.
This had a lot of potential but didn't work very well.
Ms Diaz must have been broke to ever consider this absolute load of bloody rubbish!
I Cannot believe that this film has been compared with the brilliant Bad Santa (in other reviews than on quick flix). Terrible plot, mediocre acting from the usually wonderful Cameron Diaz, and absolutely no comedic redemption from the script. Timberlake and Segal were the only redeeming aspects for this film, however, this was not due to well scripted and intelligently crafted character development, but because they are good actors, with likeable personalities off screen. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes to watch shiny, attractive images on film with the sound on mute.
Enjoyed this movie.Had a laugh.
Had it's funny parts, worth taking the time to watch
HILARIOUS!!!! that is all!
