Red Band Bad Teacher Trailer Reports
Cameron Diaz gives an F

23 February 2011  |  Written by Owen Williams

If you're at work, we're suggesting headphones might be the way forward, should you want to enjoy the super-sweary delights of this red-band trailer for Bad Teacher, starring Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake. Minors, of course, will be thoroughly unable to negotiate the draconian age-restriction page, so society is safe... (snigger).

Diaz is the example-setting pedagogue of the title, recently dumped by her fiancé and coasting through a job barely teaching seventh-graders and fending off the attentions of PE teacher Jason Segel. Things start looking up with the arrival of rich and altruistic new colleague Scott (Justin Timberlake). But there's a spanner in the works, in the shapely form of Amy Squirrel (Lucy Punch). At which point, it's on...

Trailer highlights include the double-act of Diaz and her colleague Phyllis Smith; a thoroughly enjoyable nod to that scene from Cool Hand Luke; some creative educational use of Dodgeball (the sport, not the movie); and any number of f-bombs, wielded with surgical comic precision. The title obviously brings to mind the filthy gem that is Bad Santa, and Bad Teacher looks set to continue that fine tradition. Maybe every job could have a Bad movie. Bad Journalist. Bad Fireman. Bad Paperboy... Oh wait, that last one's already happening.

 

The script is by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, of the US Office, Year One, and the projected Ghostbusters III (which is still being pinned down in the underworld by the plasticene hounds of Gozer, and Bill Murray). Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard, the brilliant Zero Effect) is the director, and it's out in the UK on June 24.
