Plot Summary
For most, teaching is an honorable profession -- except for Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz).

Then Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake), a substitute teacher who's cute and rich, arrives. Elizabeth can't wait to sink her teeth into a new meal ticket, but she faces stiff competition from Amy (Lucy Punch), a popular and perky colleague.

    Bad Teacher keeps running away from its combustibly nasty premise. Damn shame. show more

    Most of the cast doesn't know what to do with their shallow characterizations and lackluster dialogue. The best lines were harvested for the trailer - so if you've seen that, you've seen it all. show more

    Misanthropic to the extreme, Bad Teacher fails across the board. show more

    Bad movie. I love Diaz but not in this one. Any less of an actor playing her role and I would have walked out of the theater really pissed!

    Please do not even THINK of watching this with kids - even my 17 year old son thought it was highly inappropriate - and not even funny - Cameron Diaz is disgusting not even close to a teacher or a lady for that matter. I am in no means a prude - this was a horrible excuse for entertainment -it was worse than horrible - the trailers are the only funny parts - do not rent this movie -
