Bad Teacher Synopsis

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.

Inspired by A&E's Omen follow-up Damien, here are 9 movie-to-TV efforts that not only failed to outshine their cinematic counterparts, but also failed to do anything beyond fade into the pop culture abyss, only to be remembered in scenarios such as this, and perhaps for an actor’s resume if they’re desperate.

Surprise! CBS Picks Up The Mentalist, Cancels The Crazy Ones And 4 Others Surprise! CBS Picks Up The Mentalist, Cancels The Crazy Ones And 4 Others
The Mentalist or The Good Wife? That’s the way most network experts pitched CBS’ Sunday night dilemma. They could either renew the well-liked, moderately-rated crime procedural that does very well in syndication and overseas or they could renew the award-winning, moderately-rated legal drama. It was supposedly one or the other.

Taking over for The Crazy Ones as the lone single-camera comedy on CBS' Thursday night line-up is Hilary Winston's small screen take on the 2011 movie Bad Teacher. Based on -- but not a sequel to -- the movie that starred Cameron Diaz, CBS's new comedy gets off to a solid start with potential to be a great new series, thanks in part to a well-rounded cast, led by Ari Graynor as the titular "bad teacher."

The Talk’s Sara Gilbert has signed on for a TV pilot. Despite being very busy with her daytime talk hosting duties, she’s set to join Bad Teacher at CBS. In the pilot, Gilbert will play a teacher named Irene. Usually Irene is calm and fairly easygoing, but when you push her buttons, she will occasionally snap.

Ryan Hansen Joins Bad Teacher, Playing A Shorts-Wearing Athletics Coach Ryan Hansen Joins Bad Teacher, Playing A Shorts-Wearing Athletics Coach
Veronica Mars' Ryan Hansen hasn't been able to find a permanent home on the small screen in recent years. Starz' excellent but unfortunately short-lived comedy Party Down was the closest he came to that since playing the amusing but usually-shallow Dick Casablancas in VM, but Party Down only lasted two seasons, and since then Hansen has jumped from project to project. Perhaps he'll have better luck with Bad Teacher, the single camera comedy pilot in the works at CBS.

Jake Kasdan Reunites With Bad Teacher Writers For New Sony Comedy Jake Kasdan Reunites With Bad Teacher Writers For New Sony Comedy
The comedy centers on two best friends (one of them a Supercuts manager, although why that detail is important enough to mention I do not know) who hit hard times after one talks the other into breaking off his impending marriage...and then falls for his buddy's new ex. Sounds pretty generic, so it'll all come down to casting and whether the script is solid

If you have small children in your inner circle you've probably heard little other than squeals of anticipation over this weekend's arrival of Cars 2.

They always say it's more fun to play the villain, but how does that work when the hero is a heavy-drinking, pot-smoking, sailor-level-cursing asshole? In the Jack Kasdan-directed Bad Teacher, Lucy Punch may have to play the character with a conscience, but that doesn't mean she doesn't get to have a lot of fun too.

Happy Father's Day to all you poppas out there. In honor or of your big day, the summer movie season takes a week off from the wall-to-wall action, slows it down some with some laughs at our educational system's expense and revisits Lightening McQueen.

Jason Segel’s next comedy outing coming in the form of the Cameron Diaz vehicle Bad Teacher, an R-rated comedy about a pretty middle-school teacher on the hunt for a new man who undoubtedly will see the err in her ways and be a changed woman by the end of it.

When the first red trailer for Bad Teacher showed up online last month, it was hard to deny that 90% of the humor came from its extreme vulgarity. The film seems to be set up like Bad Santa, only instead of a mall and winter time it's an elementary school - and there's nothing wrong with that.

When the trailer for Bad Teacher came out last month, I was incredibly surprised. If the last 17 years have taught me anything it's that I rarely find Cameron Diaz to be funny, but there I was, sitting at my computer laughing at a trailer for a movie starring the same actress that starred in What Happens In Vegas and The Sweetest Thing.

There's a lot going on in the trailer, and it's hard to know if it'll all fit together in a coherent or actually funny movie. But with Jake Kasdan directing, his first film since the hilarious and terribly underrated Walk Hard, and The Office's Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg writing, there's reason for a little bit of blind faith.
