Bad Teacher has few big laughs, but thanks to its strong supporting cast, there's still a bit of worthwhile comedy to be found. Cameron Diaz is serviceable as the foul-mouthed, boob-obsessed protagonist, though your opinion of her performance will likely mirror your opinion of Diaz in general (thus, my general indifference). It's her supporting cast that gets most of the laughs, especially Justin Timberlake, Jason Segel, Lucy Punch, and Phyllis Smith. The movie is unfortunately predictable, even by comedy standards, but it's possible to enjoy the ride if you can turn your mind off (except the dirty part, of course).
