"Bad Teacher" Movie

I just saw the promo for a new movie with Cameron Diaz titlled " Bad Teacher". It looks just awful and just the kind of stereotyp esbeing tossed around with all of the other negative teacher bashing nationally. I am so disappointed and frustrated with the negative attitude towards teachers.I say spread the word and ban this movie, no matter how nice they try to make it out at the end or show what teaching like the promo bashes teachers , just the title alone is outrageuos.On a happiernot, I love the posters that have come with Scholastic News, the latest with Alec Baldwin posing with his fourth grade teacher showing her influence on him- it is wonderful!

I just watched the promo as well and I am totally confused as to what message this movie is trying to send out. It appears that it focuses alot on Cameron Diaz trying to get a man and realizing that if her students do well on the state test she could get paid a large bonus so that she could get her boob job. A boob job that she only wants to get the man. I REALLY hope there is more to this movie than that! Wow!

Wise 1 I think that it what the movie is exactly about!

Cameron Diaz is a "bad teacher" and doesnt do any kind of teaching. All she thinks about is ways to get a man. Then Timberlake shows up and she now needs a boob job to try and win him over...and you guessed it..if her kids do well on state tests she gets a bonus.

UGH

torn. I can see the morons out there going, "see, see, that's the way teachers are".

But it just look hilarious. I don't think I'll see it in the theater, don't go to movies much, but you never know.

I'm with BoSox Fan on this one! I backed it up several times and laughed so hard! I can't wait for it to come out either. It reminds me of some poeple I have worked with before, and I had a twinge of guilty pleasure. You all know there's been a few you've wanted to play dodgeball with like she did in the preview.

Finally someone has explained the reason behind state/provincial testing!

I think it looks hilarious. And I honestly don't think people will assume all teachers are really like that. Just because I thought the show Scrubs was funny doesn't mean I think doctors are really like that.

Looks hilarious to me! Movies like that are not supposed to be taken literally. It's meant to be fun!

Relax! It is just a movie and it looks hilarious. I don't think anyone with any sense is going to take the movie seriously and think a person teaches in order to get money for a boob job.

We can't take ourselves so seriously that we refuse to find humor in the world. Not every teacher movie can be Freedom Writers.

I think it looks funny too. You know in the end, she will probably get the man and learn how to be an awesome teacher!

I don't think our profession can stand or afford any negative press right now.

My problem was the preview I saw. The tag line said something to the effect of "We used to be #1 in education...and now we're #17. On June 24th, find out why." Excuse me? I think there is a lot more going on than "bad" teaching that explains why our country is falling so far behind. I'll give the movie makers credit ahead of time and assume this is a satire exposing the flaws in the system...fine. But was that tagline necessary? I found that offensive. Just my opinion.
