I went to see Bad Teachers tonight, at the Cavendish mall. If ever you want to see a blockbuster at an un-crowded theater, Cavendish mall is the place to be. My cousin and I, LOVED it! No line to buy the water; prime real estate when it come to seats – blissful!
That being said, I got to admit, I was a little bit disappointed. I thought I was going to be dying of laughter the entire time, but truly, this movie only got a few chuckles out of me. Generally speaking, I like Cameron Diaz in comedies; I’m slowly becoming a Justin Timberlake fan – I thought he did a great job in The social network – and I love Jason Segel (I’m a Judd Appatow, Freaks and geeks & affiliates groupie; don’t judge me). Somehow this mixture of great ingredients didn’t seem to mesh very well in this picture.
However, I have to give credit where it’s due and Cameron Diaz’s comedic timing is on point; Justin was good and his performance in the “sex-scene” was priceless. My “coup de coeur” though was Lynn Davies, the awkward 50-something socially crippled colleague. Her scenes, were the ones that truly got me laughing the loudest! Her awkwardness had something endearing to it, that made her very likeable…at least to me 😉
I’d still recommend for people to go see it…on a Tuesday, when you have absolutely nothing to do. It’s a great way to kill 1.5 hour.
This summer has a lot of good movies coming out, this was a lukewarm opener for me but I’m expecting a lot more in the weeks to come.
