The first trailer for the Cameron Diaz comedy Bad Teacher has hit the net. It debuted over on MySpace and it’s a red band version, which means some of the film’s raunchier material appears in the video. Besides Diaz, Bad Teacher stars Justin Timberlake, Jason Segel, and Lucy Punch. Those four sound like a hilarious combination on paper but can they pull it off on the big screen? Check out the trailer to find out…
Surprisingly, we didn’t laugh once during this trailer. There are a lot of funny actors in the movie but none of them deliver here. It looks like their basing a lot of their laughs on gross out jokes and F-bombs, which is pretty weak. This looks like a teacher-based version of Bad Santa, except that film actually made us laugh at some point.
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 herself 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.
Bad Teacher opens in theaters on June 24th.
