Bad Teacher is a film that from title to premise is trying to recreate some of the magic that made Billy Bob Thornton’s Bad Santa such a treat. Based on the strength of the first trailer however, Cameron Diaz is no Billy Bob Thornton, and Bad Teacher is no Bad Santa. Not to say it’s all bad though, despite Diaz not ever really feeling comfortable in her role as a pot-smoking, potty mouthed educator, some of the jokes land perfectly thanks to the great supporting cast, notably TF favourite Jason Segal.
What We Want To See: Rumour has it that next year’s Muppet movie, provisionally titled The Muppets, will focus on attempts to reunite Kermit and Co. to put on one last show at the proper, bona-fide, iconic Muppet Theatre. That’s what we want to see.
