Today, I saw Bad Teacher and it was so hilarious. Cameron Diaz plays Elizabeth Halsey, a foul-mouth, pot smoking, devious, non-caring junior high school teacher who would do anything to get money to get her boob job. Why? Well, after being dumped by her fiance who finally recognizes that she only wanted him for his money, she has to return to the job she hates...teaching. Down on her luck and living with a roommate she found on Craigslist, she has to find a way to make money to get larger boobs to snatch up another unsuspecting rich man. In walks Justin Timberlake who plays Scott Delacorte, a substitute teacher and Elizabeth has set her sights on him. However, Scott falls for Amy Squirrel, played by Lucy Punch, who is a bubbly, nosy, well-loved teacher and Elizabeth's rival.
The rest of the movie is nothing short of funny. It's light and a little over the top, but who wouldn't love to hate her!
P.S. I saw the preview for The Killer Elite and I'm so there! Robert De Niro, Jason Statham and Clive Owen...need I say more. Can't wait for the September 23rd release date in the theaters.
