Raunchy ‘Bad Teacher’ Now in Theatres - Post Your Comments

The raunchy Bad Teacher opens in theatres today. This is yet another R-rated comedy in a year that already has seen big hits Bridesmaids and The Hangover Part IIThe summer comedy stars Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Lucy Punch, Phyllis Smith, John Michael Higgins, and Jason Segel.  The film is directed by Walk Hard helmer Jake Kasdan and is written by Office and Year One scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.

The question for Bad Teacher is to see if people are getting tired of raunchy comedy, especially one fronted by a woman. Diaz is one of Hollywood’s best paid actresses, yet her greatest successes have come when paired with another recognizable costar. In the case of Bad Teacher, do Jason Segel or Justin Timberlake fit the bill like previous costars such as Ben Stiller, Drew Barrymore, or Ashton Kutcher? One thing is for certain, for those who felt that Diaz was under-used in January’s The Green Hornet, we’re sure to see plenty of Diaz in this film.

If you’ve seen Bad Teacher, be sure to leave a comment.
