Middle school instructor Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) is a bad teacher. She’s rude to her students, she swears a lot, and she is unbelievably self-centered. After Elizabeth is dumped by her sugar daddy, she devises a plan to seduce one of her colleagues (Justin Timberlake), a move which will put her up against another well-liked teacher (Lucy Punch).
Jake Kasdan, son of filmmaker Lawrence Kasdan and the man behind “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” helms this R-rated comedy. Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, scribes for “The Office” and “Year One,” team up again to pen this film’s screenplay.
WHO SHOULD SEE IT: Audiences that revel in outrageous comedies should see this movie. If you don’t want to see tame fare like “Cars 2,” and you are interested to see Cameron Diaz in something that pushes the envelope, then you should catch “Bad Teacher.”
