The lack of surprises, plot twists, and clever dialogue makes this a distressingly lame offering.

Here you have a movie in which three teenagers go to a teacher's house and take her hostage. Either you go all the way with that premise, or you don't go there at all.

Even a fantasy, whoever it's for, has to have a plot that minimally makes sense, characters that make decisions based on coherent personalities, and a consistent tone. Unfortunately, Teaching Mrs. Tingle lacks all three.

The jokes are deathly flat. There's no 'thrill' to speak of. No scares.

Subraya lo sobrevaluado que se encuentra su autor y la cada vez más alarmante falta de creatividad y buenos guionistas

Helen Mirren's acting stands out in this mean-spirited dark comedy like an original Picasso in a paint-by-numbers art show.

An infuriatingly indulgent piffle of adolescent wish - fulfillment!

Beyond Mirren's performance, there's not really much reason to see this film.

If the movie is never necessarily boring, it also is rarely interesting.
