Week 26: Bad Teacher

"Bad Teacher" was our movie of choice this week, starring Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Lucy Punch and Jason Segel. I can't really say this movie had any depth what so ever, it really was quite shallow and mindless, however, I laughed a lot and the comedy was good.

The movie was basically about a teacher, Elizabeth, played by Cameron Diaz who teaches for no other reason, then that she needs a job. Her primary goal is to find a rich man to take care of her, and she thinks Scott, played by Justin Timberlake, will fit the bill perfectly. Amy, played by Lucy Punch, can see that Elizabeth is shallow and only out for self fulfilling goals, and goes about trying to prove it. Russell, (jason Segel) is the gym teacher, and has a thing for Elizabeth, but does quite fit the bill for her.

All in all, like I said, pretty shallow and little depth, but for some reason the humor hit my funny bone today and I enjoyed it. The humor was raunchy, (not as bad as the hang over) definately an "R" rating, and if you are looking for a movie that challenges your mind in any way, this isn't it..but stupid humor? right no it!

Overall, makes you laugh, a little romance and mindless entertainment.
