Normally a movie starring Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake would cause me to gag a little bit. However, Bad Teacher also has Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall and How I Met Your Mother), Lucy Punch (Hot Fuzz and Dinner For Shmucks), and Phyllis Smith from The Office. Despite the title, it’ll probably be a long way from Bad Santa, but hopefully more irreverent and funny than your average PG rom-com.
The film follows a foul-mouthed, junior high teacher who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague. Check out the trailer below:
See? I think there might be some potential. Bad Teacher is set to be released June 24th.
