Teaching Mrs. Tingle Reviews
Worth a rental or cable viewing.
Holmes doesn't have much range. She's almost always playing Joey Potter from Dawson's Creek. No difference here, only she gets a tad tramp as the film goes on. Watson is just a pretty boy role. Boring.
The real meat in this cast comes from Mirren as Tingle. She is such an evil bitch. The way she tries to play them all against each other is evil. Her scene where she destroys them all when they are doing their History projects, just a mean lady.
And Coughlan is so very good here. I have always felt Hollywood forgot about her. I've only seen her in a handful of movies and she's always so good. I thought she would be huge after this movie, but alas it never happened.
Fox is a mere cameo in one scene, and Ringwald is so funny in her few scenes.
But the end of the movie seems too easy, as they did kidnap a teacher. Seems like no one cared?
