Also by the guy who did the Scream trilogy. Which you can see traits lifted from.
"Teaching Mrs. Tingle" may not be one of the greatest movies to grace the big screen, but it is not the worst either.
The movie is a fantasy/revenge story, yet a real world scenario, at its core. We've all had a person like Mrs. Tingle (teacher or not) that seemed like that their sole purpose in life was to make our lives miserable as possible. This movie explores the option of what could happen if we took the opportunity to get back at that person.
Provides laughs and some scorching lines from Mirren. It's a dark comedy which you will enjoy if you want a fun movie.
While this movie is not without its flaws, (acting has shallow points at times, the pop-culture references that are becoming cliches of their own, etc) this film is quite warm and comical...that is if you are not looking for the best picture of the year or something deep and turbulent.
