Bad Teacher

Valérie Lobsiger
Movie Rating: Valérie Lobsiger

Motivated only by her desire for money, a slutty teacher drinks, gets stoned and falls asleep in class.

Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz) is a junior high school teacher who dreams of finding a new sugar daddy and quitting. She is terrible at her job, a bad colleague, slutty, superficial, two-faced and motivated only by her greed (she washes cars with her pupils only to steal the money they make, she helps them cheat to get a bonus for the class with the highest score, etc.), so that she can get a boob job to attract a wealthy substitute teacher. How far will she go to get her man? 

Often crassly vulgar and only out for laughs (and stuffed with fart and penis jokes), Bad Teacher turns out to be more worrisome than hilarious. Apparently Disney is out to validate the adolescent aspirations of laziness, easy money and pretense. All teachers are ridiculed and shown as poor and clueless losers. The movie's ending - where the moral high ground is reached thanks to a very quick and inexplicable change in attitude - does nothing to save the movie.
