Green Band Trailer For Bad Teacher Cuts The Vulgarity, Keeps The Funny
When the first red band 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. Red band trailers are the perfect way to advertise a movie like Bad Teacher. It does, however, put a lot of pressure on the green band trailer. Luckily it seems as though this movie will survive.
Yahoo! has premiered the first PG-13 look at the Jake Kasdan film. In the film, Cameron Diaz stars as a gold-digging teacher who really shouldn't be allowed anywhere near kids. But when a new substitute comes to town, played by Justin Timberlake, she sees her ticket out.

What I like about this trailer is that while it does cut out all of the "naughty" words, it's still crafted in a way that you can put the puzzle pieces together and still get the joke. Sure, you can't hear Diaz say that she wants to sit on Timberlake's face, but by cutting off the one word at the end you don't completely kill the joke. Also, this trailer delivers an extra scene with Jason Segel that the red band didn't have, and I'm not going to start complaining about that.
