Some teachers just don't give an F. For example, there's Elizabeth. She's foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate. She drinks, she gets high, and she can't wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she's dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute - competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy. When Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher, the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.
Comedy - This is a raunchy comedy aimed at young adult audiences. Although set
in a middle school, the film's drug and sexual content and constant
strong language make it inappropriate for that age group. Fans of
Cameron Diaz will have plenty to savor here.
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; 10 S-words; 4 GD's, a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex without nudity; non-sexual nudity. VIOLENCE: Comic punches and hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Constant alcohol and marijuana. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Constant banter and wisecracks, often dark; sex gags; drug humor.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 96 moviegoers:
TEENS:The ladies enjoyed "Bad Teacher" very much with over half loving it. The guys enjoyed it but only a third loved it. The vast majority rated it "Very Good," which is above average and indicates a movie they enjoyed very much but didn't love.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:About half the ladies loved it and most of the rest enjoyed it very much. Only a very few rated it as low as "Good." The guys rated it nearly the same. The only difference were fewer "Fantastic" reviews, but they pretty much made up for it with reviews of "Excellent."
ADULTS:The reviews really drop off with the adult females. They aren't bad reviews but they are disappointing since there are so few high reviews. Almost all rated it as above average, which is good but not great. I suspect the type of story it is didn't appeal to the adult ladies as much as it did to the younger ladies. The male reviews also drop off but not nearly as bad. Most males rated it as an above average movie - enjoyable but nothing memorable.
