“Bad Teacher” is a comedy film directed by Jake Kasdan and released in 2011. The movie stars Cameron Diaz as Elizabeth Halsey, a foul-mouthed and lazy middle school teacher who is desperate to quit her job and marry a rich man. When a new substitute teacher, Scott Delacorte (played by Justin Timberlake), arrives at the school, Elizabeth sees him as her ticket to a comfortable life and begins scheming to win his affections.
The film is notable for its sharp humor and Diaz’s strong performance as the titular “bad teacher.” The movie also features strong supporting performances by Timberlake, Lucy Punch, and Jason Segel, who plays a gym teacher with a crush on Elizabeth.
Overall, “Bad Teacher” is a funny and irreverent comedy that delivers on its promises of laughs and entertainment. Its mix of sharp writing, witty performances, and a good dose of raunchiness make it a must-see for fans of the comedy genre, particularly those who enjoy Diaz’s work.
