Bad Teacher Movie Review

bad-teacher-movie-review A comedy centered around a foul-mouthed, junior high teacher who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague — a move that pits her against a well-loved teacher.


There is not a lot I have to say about Bad Teacher. It was just a bit better than mediocre with some surprising laughs – besting my expectations, which were very low. A decent comedy that is worth the download, if not to watch in theatres.

I want to come clean with the fact that I am not a big fan of Cameron Diaz. I do not know why, I just find most of her roles annoying. Cameron plays the bitch who does not care about anyone in this movie and the part suits her well. Otherwise, her performance was very typical in her style, despite the fact that she was in a much different role than she is usually in.

Supporting actors Lucy Punch, Jason Segel (you know him from How I Met Your Mother) and Justin Timberlake add most of the comedy to the movie – don’t expect a lot from Cameron.

Overall, I recommend Bad Teacher but if you have something else to see in theatres, skip this one and watch it at home.

  1. It does have some chuckles but there are just way too many punch lines that fall flat on their faces and not enough of Jason Segel’s effortless hilarity to balance out everything else that’s trying too hard. ‘Bad Teacher’ had the potential for greatness but ended up being pretty forgettable. Good Review! Check out mine when you can please!
