|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.|
Editor's NoteA booze-swilling, pot-smoking, hard-swearing seventh-grade teacher rallies to get out of the classroom for good by wrangling a rich substitute teacher into marriage in this comedy from director Jake Kasdan (WALK HARD: THE DEWEY COX STORY). Cynical teacher Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz) hates her job. She can't wait for the day she finds a man who makes enough cash to let her walk away from her life of middle-school misery, and when her fiancé cancels their wedding plans, her frantic search intensifies. Just when it starts to look like Elizabeth will have to muscle her way through another semester of skull-crushing hangovers, however, handsome substitute Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake) shows up at school sporting a fancy wristwatch and the promise of a care-free future. But in order to earn her meal ticket, Elizabeth will have to out-cute perky fellow teacher Amy (Lucy Punch). And it won't be easy, because Scott is crushing on Amy hard. Now, if Elizabeth can just motivate her students to study so that she can win a state contest to earn enough cash for some new breast implants, perhaps she can finally find a means of diverting Scott's gaze. Meanwhile, much to Elizabeth's chagrin, wisecracking, self-effacing gym teacher Russell (Jason Segel) refuses to admit defeat despite being turned down for a date by his gold-digging colleague time and again.

|Maybe a better title would be Socially Inappropriate Teacher. Or maybe Craven Educator with the Potential to Change. Sure, Cameron Diaz's dumped debutante Elizabeth Halsey wants nothing more than to marry a rich man and live spectacularly off his money. It's what every hot chick with a smokin' bod deserves, right? Of course, the story mandates that her nuptial ruse be uncovered, requiring her to return to the one place she hates more than anything else -- the classroom. Often too drunk and detached to teach and purposefully shunning her needy students, she lets in-class movies like Stand and Deliver and Lean on Me do the heavy educational lifting. How she ever became an instructor in the first place remains a solid mystery....read the full review|
