Critic Reviews for Teachers
Someone had another Hospital in mind, and they even hired Arthur Hiller to direct it, but the attempt to merge black humor and strident social commentary seems even more uncertain this time.
involving tribute to everyone who teaches
An insult to real teachers with very few truths.
Audience Reviews for Teachers
This is the worst portrayal of a high school I've ever seen, and none of the actors were good either, which was surprising since there are many good actors in the movie, but I really didn't like this movie.More
This satire on American high schools doesn't really hit the spot, despite its wonderful cast. Madcap humour is all very well, but only if you've got some decent jokes hidden in your desk.More
This movie is a plethora of 80's actors including a nude Jobeth Williams and just off the Karate Kid movies Macchio minus Morgan Freeman and has the storyline to match. It is full of some pretty good acting and not a bad script. It actually shows some good acting by Nick Nolte and surprisingly the late Richard Mulligan. It probably never went anywhere because the script matches a lot of other 80's movies of the time. Not a bad soundtrack either. Pre Back to the Future Crispin Glover is a nice touch in this.More
I can't believe that more people haven't seen this little gem from 1984. A decent storyline with a strong cast and good sountrack. It's funny, it's serious, and it's a little crazy. An interesting mix of comedy and drama.More
