This week i got the chance to watch the movie ‘Bad Teacher’ i have seen a few ads recently about this film and thought it looked good.
This film is about a teacher called Elizabeth who hates her job and intends on leaving it for a rich man. The whole way through the film all she is interested in doing is finding someone who is loaded that she can sponge off of. She is also trying to find some way to fund her new boob job that she is looking to get and tries numerous ways to get the money including coning the education system in order to improve her kids class results.
The film is a bit slow to start but does get funny. It may not be for everyone, i found it funny but wouldn’t be by any means one of my favourites. It’s one of those films that you will watch once then maybe not for another while. If you are looking for a lighthearted comedy with a few laughs thrown in then this film would suit the build.
This film has a fairly decent cast including Phyllis Smith who you may know from the American version of the office, took me a while to figure out who she was. Jason Segel from how i met you mother, Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake are a few others who play some of the main roles in the film.
Apparently this film came out earlier this year around June in Ireland, i didn’t see it come into the cinema, not sure if it did or not. I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t come to my local cinema, like i mentioned before they tend not to bring a lot of films in, like the most recent Inbetweeners film. The films runtime is about an hour and a half, nice and short, not too long, here is the trailer below and the IMDB description of the film.
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.
