Just a banal, boring kind of awful.

Much like one of Elizabeth's classes, there are no lessons to be learned, but this mischievous, borderline amoral little number passes the time in a surprisingly amusing fashion.

While a few of Diaz's scenes with Timberlake and his gift for the deadpan seem as if they're going to amount to something, the script's dialogue fails them.

I was wary going in, as I tend to be whenever a Hollywood movie announces through its advertising how "outrageous" it's going to be. The only outrageous thing about Bad Teacher is that director Jake Kasdan and two writers who earned an...

Its trash-can humor is tasteless, no doubt, but hey, that doesn't make it unpalatable.

If you can see past the dismal sexual politics of "Bad Teacher," which I couldn't, you might applaud the gall of a film that expends so little effort in forcing us to like its central character.

Somehow we are supposed to feel sympathy for this wreck of a woman.

A frustrating mix of smart flash and smirking impudence.

[Even] if I can't give it a gold star the two and a half I'm slipping it is still enough to be considered a passing grade.

Hard to root for such a selfish lead, but "Bad Teacher" has just enough politically incorrect humor to warrant a grade of B.

If you're looking for a funny comedy about a cynical, hard-partying school teacher transformed by his students into a paragon of pedagogical awesomeness, skip Bad Teacher and go rent School of Rock instead.

There are plenty of quality gags seeping through from the margins.

I've always liked Cameron Diaz, who brings a spark to every part she plays, but she's only as good as her material, and Bad Teacher is bad news for her and her fans. I was wary going in, as I tend to be whenever a Hollywood movie announces through its...

Has its lewd funniness, though not often enough to make it worthy of not only Bad Santa but, more to the point, School of Rock.

Everyone loves an anti-hero, but usually there's something redeeming about the character that makes you want to root for them in the end. Not so much in Bad Teacher.

The best lines were harvested for the trailer -- so if you've seen that, you've seen it all.

Shame the flick's just a one-note joke because, sight unseen, Bad Teacher had me at the title.

The film is fast and often funny. And while it's not for children - really - I bet the adults who just spent a school year with them are going to love it.

This fitfully funny but mostly dull misfire defines exactly where the line can be drawn between truly subversive humor and lazy cynicism.
