Not the best comedy, but entertaining enough - and the ending has no logical explanation, really.

This is a good one for a light entertaining evening - when you just want to relax and shut off the brain. Easy going movie. Certainly tests the boundaries on a few concepts that will make you squeem (if you have any ethical instincts or moral compass).

Laughable. No teacher this bad would still be teaching. Jason Segal is terrific!

What an immense disappointment. The only character with any semblance of a motivation is the shrill Lucy Punch who is so unbelievably annoying in this role, but it's what the script calls for, unfortunately. Cameron Diaz plays a mediocre teacher and her actual teaching isn't really part of the film. She's actually just a nasty gold-digger with no incentive to do well other than to find someone to leech off of. It's terrible and I hope the entire cast distances themselves from it. I wouldn't recommend it.

Bad , really bad, just as the title says and definietly not for young audience . Waste of time !

Feb 04, 2013 a former teacher I found this extremely funny for its over-the-top story and characters. Come on, people, we know it's inappropriate but that is what farce is all about!
