      Bad Education Reviews

      Frank Tassone isn’t a likeable character; in fact, he’s rather detestable. But that almost makes me love this film even more. It’s been a long journey towards real queer representation...

      Bad Education is a criminally entertaining film.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Aug 28, 2022

      This is one of those deadpan farces where we get to chortle as awful people are hoisted high on the petard of their own greed.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | May 13, 2022

      A deeply American tale about the drip-drop nature of morality in positions of power, and how easy it can be to excuse the wrong thing when it feels so right.

      The film effectively sheds light on an ongoing problem in many school systems that quite frankly goes unnoticed. There is no denying that Bad Education is one of 2020s best films and a must-see for any cinephile.

      This is a realistic, intelligent drama with a strong cast and a brilliantly flawed protagonist.

      It's truly a small miracle to watch the way these two antisocial misfits con their way into people's trust, as Jackman and Janney make them all too human.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Jul 31, 2021

      It dialogues with topics about hypocrisy and corruption in the American educational sphere, but even with the decent performances from Jackman and Janney cannot rekindle a flat narrative that stumbles along. [Full review in Spanish]

      Lightweight as a drama, but the performances - especially from Janney and Jackman - are first rate.

      One of 2020's 20 best films.

      So well-crafted... Has really interesting insights into the psychopathy or the humanity of all the players.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5 | Feb 15, 2021

      Bad Education is an engrossing comedy drama. Though it is a comedy and also has many characteristics of an out-and-out satire, it treats its subject matter - corruption in academia - with the gravity it deserves.

      Full Review | Jan 28, 2021

      As much about tacit complicity as corruption, Bad Education is an irresistibly absorbing study of self-interest and an impressive showcase for its director and stars.

      Jackson gives a tour-de-force performance, portraying Tassone with incredible alertness and spontaneity.

      Hugh Jackman's performance proves to be another major highlight.

      Full Review | Sep 23, 2020 a slice of compelling entertainment, Bad Education brings out the best in Hugh Jackman, and given its timely relevancy, it goes to show how America still has some learning to do.

      Everything about the situation in America made the thievery in Roslyn not only possible, but inevitable.

      Director Cory Finley deftly walks that caper film tightrope, allowing us to enjoy the company of scoundrels while never asking us to identify with them.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
