Rotten: "Bad Teacher" immediately brings "Bad Santa" to mind and suffers by the comparison.

They couldn't fine someone else to play the part of the Bad Teacher, I mean Camernon Diaz is way past her prime as an attractive high school teacher, more of a want to be attractive, but looking more like a washed up New Jersey Soccer Mom. This is not a kids movie by any means. Pretty trashy, but I rest assured that parents that let there kids watch the simsons will find nothing wrong with this film. 1 1/2 stars

It's a decently constructed comedy that would have worked if it didn't lack the raunchiness and laugh out loud moments that I expected. But what saved the well intended comedy Bad Teacher for me was it's demonstration that it had a heart and soul in the second half. It's a comedy worth seeing once for chuckles but nothing more than that.

Bad Teacher is sometimes actually quite funny, and at other times it had me chuckling at how utterly stupid it was. The acting for the most part felt really overdone, but I did enjoy watching Jason Segel, Lucy Punch and Phyllis Smith. Cameron Diaz was pretty good, but her character was just too annoying to be likeable. Bad Teacher could have been so much better and funnier, and squanders it's potential with some truly horrible dialogue and some really awkward moments.
