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.

I think Cameron Diaz is a very funny and talented actress who looks like she has nailed this role I want to see it just to see how the chemistry is between her and her ex Timberlake. and I m sure theres a lot of guys that will see this with the girlfriends just to have a perv at her

In spite of a promising concept and a charmingly brazen performance from Cameron Diaz, Bad Teacher is never as funny as it should be.

I was shocked at how bad this movie was. Mr Timberlake seemed to have been recruited just for his name, and any talents he displayed in earlier films went out of the window on every scene he was in. Ms Diaz tried hard with her lines, but they weren't strong or funny enough to make any impact beyond the crude and unappetising. Perhaps the only saving grace...

It was okay, not great and certainly not a classic. Segal was great like usual, but JT - the man should stick to his 00's day job !

I love Cameron Diaz movies. I love Justin Timberlakes skits in SNL. I absolutely undoubtedly LOVE anything Jason Seagel is in and tend to laugh before he even says anything. They way they lamed down his character to be ALMOST funny, and just the whole shallow minded-ness of Camerons character and the unrealistic continuum of how long she kept neglecting...

I didn't expect the jokes in this movie to be that fresh, but I was surprised and entertained by what I saw/heard. I also sort of got all fond of Cameron Diaz again. I forgot how great a comedic actress she was after the crud of recent years and was pleasantly reminded in this film. BTW Justin Timberlake's character is the most revolting weenie.

Cameron Diaz at her best with plenty of laugh out loud moments and Jason Segal was hilarious as always. There were a few lagging sections in the middle. A pretty decent comedy
