‘Bad Teacher’ Poster Deserves A “B-”

Tuesday, March 8 by

Bad Teacher is the movie that asks the question, “if Bad Santa were about a teacher instead of a Santa, what would that be like?” The trailer shines some light on the answer, and the new poster has just been released. You can see it below.

Things I like: Cameron Diaz‘ legs.

Things I could use more of: Cameron Diaz‘ legs, boobs, butt.

Thing I was confused by: usually students give teachers apples. Is the note from a student who hates her bad teacher, or did the bad teacher put the note on the apple she was given to piss off her students? Who’s being told to eat whom?

Thing I liked: the tag line. She doesn’t give an “F,” though I’ll give this poster a “B-” for getting me kinda interested. Sorta. I liked the trailer better.

Also starring Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel, Bad Teacher schools us on June 24th. Synopsis after the poster. (Empire Online, JustJared)

Some teachers just don’t give an F. For example, there’s Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz).  She’s foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate.  She drinks, she gets high, and she can’t wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job.  When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch).  When Elizabeth also finds hersel fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.
