What's singularly lacking here is any sense of how to use the underage characters, who, apart from one or two, are a barely distinguishable gaggle.

You'd think a raunchy comedy involving Cameron Diaz as an apathetic, pot smoking, drinking and uncaring teacher would be a natural sequel to Billy Bob Thornton's Bad Santa.

Freaks And Geeks and Zero Effect seem a long time ago as director Jake Kasdan offers up a film simultaneously loose and strained, full of underlined punchlines. Proof that comedy really is in the. Timing.

A high-school satire that is reasonably funny, though far from sure how badass it really wants to be.

Diaz's game charms are semi-squandered on a script that's two-thirds filler. Not quite detention, but on thin ice.

For all her desk-stashed booze and inappropriately tight skirts, the movie offers Diaz a pretty bland badness.

Broader than Bad Santa and less consistently funny, it's still gleefully rude, crude and often a lot of fun.
