Misguided teen thriller -- don't bother.

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

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.

As a teen drama, it's soggy and predictable; as a thriller, it's a soggy and predictable teen drama; as a comedy, it's a soggy and predictable teen drama.

The lack of surprises, plot twists, and clever dialogue makes this a distressingly lame offering.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 1, 2000
A wildly uneven and sloppily directed movie, full of clashing tones and undigested bits of superior films.
January 1, 2000
There is nothing funny about the situation in Teaching Mrs. Tingle.

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.
January 1, 2000
Teaching Mrs. Tingle is funny, smart and full of unpredictable twists and turns.

Pushes the boundaries of credibility!

Depressing!

Utterly far - fetched.
January 1, 2000
Beyond Mirren's performance, there's not really much reason to see this film.
January 1, 2000
It lacks the satirical edge or intelligence of other recent films set in high school, including Election.

It's Kevin's chance to exercise his Hitchcock muscles and advance from the irony-laced fright of Scream to something really terrifying: Helen Mirren's horrifying pedal extremities!
January 1, 2000
As a routinely cruel, often vicious, miserably unhappy teacher, Mirren offers a complex, brilliantly disciplined performance!
