How would you like it if your profession was mocked? If you think that all teachers keep booze in their desks and don’t care, then Bad Teacher is for you.

Cameron Diaz, a wonderful actress, plays a terrible role. There is no story line evident in this film, except that all teachers don’t care. While watching this film you might want to bring a pillow so you can take a nice nap. If you want to waste your time and just be plain mad then this is for you. Sitting through the whole movie without turning it off or zoning out would be a miracle.

I recently viewed this film and all I could think was, “Yeah that really happens.” For example there is a scene in the movie when the teacher realizes she gets a bonus pay for passing grades. When she finds this out she kicks into overdrive. I am a high school student and I have never in my life met a teacher like this. It is so unrealistic it’s not even funny. I myself had a hard time watching this film. To be honest I never even finished it, I turned it off half way through. This movie makes nails on a chalkboard sound good.

I will agree that Cameron Diaz is not who I would have chosen first fo... (more »)
