First of all, I don’t understand why Justin Timberlake would appear in this movie. His role was terrible, and it did nothing to improve his image in any way. He should have stopped at “The Social Network” where he was hot and a bit of a bad boy. Here he just plays a complete nerd, and he surely does not need the money that badly… or does he? Maybe that apartment at the Soho Mews set him back more than I realized.
Cameron Diaz, on the other hand, I can see starring in this movie. She is not getting any younger, and she probably does need the money. Her body is rock hard and very hot, and she is pretty funny playing a terrible middle school teacher who is desperate to marry a rich man, at pretty much any cost. She smokes pot and drinks her way through the days, and shows movies during her classes so she can sleep rather than teach.
The cutest person in the movie was Jason Segel, who plays the high school Phys Ed teacher. I have loved him since he co-starred with Paul Rudd in “I Love You Man”. He is adorable and funny, and does not disappoint here. Actually, he was my favorite person in the whole movie.
Anyway… this is not a good movie, though my son and I thought it was pretty funny. My boyfriend, on the other hand, was not amused. So, we give it one thumb down, and two parallel thumbs (neither up nor down in other words).
My recommendation: wait to see it On Demand.
