Bad Teacheris a 2011 black comedy film directed by Jake Kasdan based on a screenplay by Lee Eisenberg and Gene
Stupnitsky, and starring Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, and Jason Segel. The film was released in the United Kingdom on June 17 and in the United States and Canada on June 24, 2011.
An employee of the Chicago Public Schools system, the ha-cha seventh grade educator Elizabeth portrayed by Cameron Diaz in “Bad Teacher” blows most of her classroom time showing her students (whose names she never learns) movies such as “Lean on Me,” “Stand and Deliver” and “Dangerous Minds” while she nurses a hangover or longs for her next bong hit.
Dumped by her fiance, this craven schemer has returned to the job she thought she’d left behind. But a darling substitute teacher with money (played by Diaz’s ex, Justin Timberlake, highly amusing in his nerdiness) gives Elizabeth a clear goal. She must raise 10 grand for a boob job designed to bag the new guy, even if the likable gym teacher (Jason Segel) presents a more simpatico match.
